I always love seeing old cabinet knobs at the thrift store but never know what to do with them other than putting them on cabinets! So I decided to try my hand at a non-traditional Christmas tree and had so much fun making this creation. It's so simple to make!

    I like this! Add 3 more knobs--maybe as a tree trunk?--and you could hang small ornaments on it as a countdown to Christmas 'calendar'. I guess you'd have to take the ornaments' sizes into account when spacing the knobs, but that shouldn't be too difficult.
