Aspiring Metalsmiths October Challenge- Holiday Decorations

Decorate for the Holidays
Thank you for the votes! I, too, wanted to see lots of entries, so this is what I came up with……
Make a holiday decoration, for any holiday. Think Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Valentine’s Day. Any holiday! It can be an ornament for a tree, a table decoration, something you hang on a door, whatever you create. If you have time, try a new technique, a new metal or a new patina. Maybe even recycle an object from the recycling bin. Just make something other than jewelry.
Make sure that you tell us how you challenged yourself and what you made it from so that we can vote accordingly! Add your entry to the Flickr pool tagged 'AspMet October challenge'. Photos of finished items are due November 4th by Midnight!!
I’ve included a few photos to get the wheels turning……
For Halloween

For Thanksgiving

For Christmas

Instructions: You must add your entry to the Flickr pool by midnight November 4th (it's a Friday night) Remember to tag your photos with "AspMet October Challenge", so we don't miss it!
