On the 12th Day of Camper Christmas

Inspiration from Trader Joe’s tin came to me.

When this one started to happen, I knew I was going to love it.  I found the stick on a dog walk and it was covered in exquisite moss, so I knew I needed a wide ornament to fully showcase nature’s gift.  The long cake pan became the perfect pairing.  I was trying to use the existing rolled edges so that dictated the car length–making the the car more like our old minivan because there wasn’t enough tin to put the SUV nose on it.  No matter, I love it anyway!

I did splurge and put a special all white $1.50 bottle bush tree on this ornament so it would stand out against the big tree green.  

Isn’t it just adorable!  

So, this is my last official 12 Days ornament.  I am going to finish up some tree fluffing and post a picture of the finished tree tomorrow along with the name of the randomly chosen “Follower” who will be gifted an ornament.  

I will be glad to have all this making and blogging time back during this busy season but I have truly loved creating this tree.  I hope I have inspired some to look at creative recycling.  It really doesn’t take money to create something fun and since there isn’t cash outlay, there isn’t anything to lose!  Pick up your scissors and a tube of E6000 and make something!  

What if you were to wrap your gifts in catalog pages and newsprint and make your bow a recycled ornament??  Re-using trash is a way of honoring the planet upon which we all love camping!  It’s just darn fun, too!

  1. Oh WOW! This is the best one yet! You are so creative. Thank you for doing this. I’m looking forward to seeing the complete tree. Merry Christmas πŸŽπŸŽ„


  2. I love what you are doing! I also am a repurposer and get a huge lift from making things from recyclables!!! Last year I punched gift tags from junk mail that comes around the holidays. The card stock ads are great weight for projects.
