5 best etsy repurposed christmas ornaments for 2012
by Mitchell Eismont
I am extremely interested in repurposed artwork. I think it has something to do with my humble up bringing and being poor. We could find uses for a lot of objects that people would throw at. As I grew into an artist, I repurpose a lot of things. As a matter of fact I collect old sign letters, and I am working on an alphabet in my design studio. Anyway here are my favorite repurposed etsy.com Christmas ornaments.
Lizardskins has a ton of different styles of this pop can ornament. (Yeah we say pop instead of soda in Pennsylvania). You can by about any ornament in any aluminum can ever.
I am a big fan of old paper, and reusing something like score sheets is pretty genius. The other thing I like about these is the fact that the music notes create a really interesting texture.
Again, I am a big fan of printed items. These stars are made from old dictionaries, and again you can see the interesting texture that the type makes on these.
Who doesn’t love this ornament. It reminds me of being a young kid riding my bicycle around the block, causing terror.
This one is perfect for the minimalist in all of us. It also has a very natural feel to it, if you are going for a more organic style tree.
