I can turn pretty much anything into a Christmas tree theme. It's from having to come up with themes for our annual Festival of Trees for so many years. So what do you do when you have some vintage wooden beads and a Playskool Old Lady in the Shoe toy? Put a Christmas tree in the shoe and use the beads for ornaments.
Many of the ornaments are the wooden beads. I simply slid the hole over the branch. Easy peasy.
I also had a bunch of small round beads. I took inspiration from the pull string of the shoe and....
made a bunch of ornaments with baker's red and white string (found in the gift wrap section during Christmas season) to simulate the pull string.
I added a second tiny tree in the front hole of the shoe. I glued two small wooden stars on the top and then made a garland out of the small beads and the red/white baker's string.
I originally made this to sell in the shop. I tend to price things in the shop a little higher if I don't really want to get rid of it, but if someone will pay the price, I would be willing to let it go. This was still around at the end of the season, so now it has a permanent home in my basement which is decorated with vintage toys and games.
