Vintage Photo Tree

Sort of 'borrowing' again here.  I have seen a few cute photo trees at The Table and Dear Lillie so here is my 'take' on that idea.  I had planned to use a real branch and spray it but it's been pouring all day so finding a dry branch . . . not happening. So I went digging . . . and found this wire tree I forgot I had.
Instead of family photos, I googled and found a bunch of vintage Christmas photos, printed them, roughed them up a bit and using clips I had, hung them on the tree.
Now THAT'S a Christmas tree!
This is one of my favorites!

I only had a certain amount of the clips so some branches were bare.  I rooted around in my craft room and found a bag of glass prisms and attached those to some branches.
  Then I found a tube of glass beads in my 'stash' and slipped one on each branch and a few stacked on the top.  And there you have it!

  5. I love the idea of using vintage photos for Christmas. This is definitely one of those decor ideas that can be used all year long.

    You could use this in your new guest/mancave. Replace these pictures with vintage post cards from around the world!

    Have a great day.

  9. Hi Lauren, I love, love, love your wire tree and the photos you hung. What a great idea, I may have to make one up to put by my moms chair so she can see old pictures of her 9 children! Stopping by from Deck The Halls Sunday!

  13. Love it! I have an old tree like this too. I might have to "borrow" this cute idea from you and make my own photo tree! I saw your picture on the Ivy and Elephants link party and had to come check it out! Thanks for the inspiration!

  15. I have that same wire tree that I have vintage ornaments on, but your use of the tree with photos is really clever.❤
