Vintage Shiny Brite Christmas Ornament Display, Wood Christmas Tree

Do we have any other Shiny Brite ornament collectors out there? I love them. I buy them all the time at thrift stores and flea markets. I love the fancy ones but I don't even care if they have any designs on them at all. The solid colors are perfect for filling in my Christmas tree.
But I wanted a way to really show off the fancy ornaments. So I put together this rustic wood Christmas tree display.
See ALL my DIY Christmas projects HERE.
Here's how the tree looked when I started:
I drilled holes in the "branches" and then brushed on some green stain. This part was super easy! The stain just brushes on and wipes off.
After it dried I screwed the Christmas tree into the back of this wooden box.
I made the ornament hooks out of some wire and attached them through the holes that I had drilled.
Now the ornaments are ready to hang on the rustic handmade ornament hooks.
I filled up the hooks with my favorite Shiny Brite ornaments and then filled the wooden box with more. And I still have BOXES and BOXES left that I haven't displayed!!!
That one with the stripes is one of my favorites. It's not the original one my grandparents had but it does look just like it!
