CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS




























These Christmas decorations are made from old radio valves! When I saw this box of valves I knew I could do something with them so I bought them and waited for the inspiration to strike!




The challenge on Mixed Media Monday challenge site this week is Christmas decorations so these fit in perfectly!!

Tami asked what the valves looked like to start with......good point!! Here they are!
