Christmas Decorating With Vintage & Salvaged Metal

I like to incorporate old and rusty items into my Christmas decorating. Here is a sampling of what I did this year.
An old miners light and vintage blocks were a part of my mantel display.
My husband and I created this winter tree out of salvaged metal parts and some glitzy clear beads.
I combined rusty metal gears and an iron ball with gold pine cones for a nice contrast.
A rusted bucket was the base for my display of birch logs and cuttings from the yard.

    I like how you've incorporated the old industrial elements in your holiday scheme. It adds a lot of character.
