Junkle Bells In June


Six months have already passed since I started my year long quest to have a new junk tree by this December.  I can tell you that had I not made this public commitment to this project....it would have slid. I am so happy that I did!


It's always about the bits and scraps with me so I gathered up fabric scraps, rick rack, thread, string, and yarn in the color scheme that has developed over the last 6 months.  I began wrapping and tying on my clothespins.


I decided to add tags so I popped open one of my hymnals I cut from to look for Christmas themed words.  "Jesus Loves Me" was the song I opened to. Maybe not a typical Christmas song, but I've always liked the simplicity of it. So all of the tags are from that song.


I wired the tags on and made a hoop to hang them from out of the wire.


My tree is coming along....still need to come up with an idea for the tree itself.  I'd sure like to hear if you have any ideas.

Previous Junkle Bells posts can be found at each of these links:  January, February, March, April, May

Mr. Linky is open below if you'd like to join in this month!  I'll leave it open until Friday.

  2. What a great look! I just love seeing all of the covered clothespins hanging together. Since I am a relatively new follower I need to go back and read the other posts and see what Junkle Bells is all about.
    And before I forget....your photos are stunning!

  7. These will look great on your tree, love song. I may use my shoe rack/bottle tree for a tree, and last year, for a show, is when I did the extreme trimmed tree.

    Great job coming up with this party, for us, but for you, too. You've really made a bunch of cool things. Lezlee
