I've had a small rustic/primitive tree for several years....sometimes I use it, sometimes I don't.
Earlier this summer, while visiting a local junker/picker/seller I found this wooden crate with metal reinforced sides. Both ends say "Bowman" and have some numbers on them. Since my husband is an avid bow hunter (perhaps you've heard me refer to him as the Great White Hunter?) I thought this would be something right up his alley. Just so happens my little primitive tree fits quite nicely inside.
Since hubs was out hunting (muzzleloader season) I snuck out to his stash of antlers and grabbed a few for the tree. Can you see 'em?
Throw in a couple of pinecone ornaments & berry sprigs.....
Add some vintage postcard looking ornaments and some faux fowl feathers (say that three times fast after a round of egg nog!)
Oh yeah, the thrift store find....almost forgot to show you! You've seen lots of sweater-turned-pillow transformations....here's mine! The colors were perfect for the den (a.k.a. "dead animal room"). It's the only room in the house where he's allowed to hang his...well, dead animals. Not to worry....I won't be showing you any pics of the critters.....don't want to creep anyone out!
