This is one of my favorite things to make before Christmas. They are recycled shotgun shells I decorate with all sorts of embellishments. Hope you like them.Posted Image

Thanks! I bought some 12 guage once fired shells off ebay and some were given to me. I take the primers out. A little paint, some fantasy snow dabbed on with a toothpick for the beard and a hot glue gun for the pinecones, trim, and feathers.
I use a seam ripper to poke the holes for the wires and it makes a simple gift that's easy to do.
