Thrifted Red Toolbox With a Christmas Message

This is one of my favorite projects
so far this year. 
I found this old, red, rusty toolbox at
a thrift store. $2. It's been sitting in
my stash room waiting for a purpose.

The brilliant, festive red made it a perfect fit
for some kind of Christmas fun.
The greenery is from an old garland
that I had. I attached that and the moss
with hot glue. 
Burlap... rusty metal... pinecones.
And a little, lettered message.
Remembering why we celebrate
the season.
 My Angel is made from an old
hammer handle partially covered with
old sheet music. 
Her wings are folded
coffee filters with little ruffles made from
an old paper tape measure.

I found the brass corner in my
basket of metal treasures.
I loved the star for Christmas 
and I used E600
to keep it in it's place.

 I hope that your Christmas season
has been full of joy and memorable times
so far... with many more to come.

May the wonder and love of 
the season fill your heart.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Be blessed!

This is absolutely magnificent, Tamara!!! Well done!!
It's simple yet interesting, and looks very well made.
I haven't forgotten you, quite the contrary, actually!! But lots of things have kept me away from the computer for emails... I have to take care of myself... you know that :) I will respond as soon as possible.
Sending warm hugs as for now,
Monica xoxo
