Advent Blog Day 17 : From the Kitchen Cupboard
Creating an unusual Christmas tree doesn't mean you need unusual items or materials - just look in your kitchen cupboard. It would seem that vintage utensils which perhaps have had their day can find a new life as a Christmas tree - rolling pins, old sieves, funnels, saucepan lids, cake tins .....
The star bursts on this tree appear to be made from plastic straws, but I think the bamboo ones, the paper ones, or even those flash metal ones would look even better with the cake tins and metal lids on this kitchen tree.

What about some crockery ... plates, cups and saucers

Earlier (Day 15) , I posted some trees made from plastic spoons, but I think these bent silver spoons and forks make a far more interesting tree.Or what about creative used jam jars - just add a few other decorations for a really colourful kitchen tree.
Under the sink you may find even more interesting treasures for creating Christmas trees - bottle brushes.... these ones look suspiciously too clean to be recycled.

And if you need all your baking tins and dinnerware for your Christmas cooking for your guests, then perhaps you can add your own Christmas Tree touch to the dinner table?
Hope you are feeling as though you can manage just one more week of this craziness... but tomorrow, warning - the trees are full of life, bizarre yes, but full of life !
