COZY CREEK PRIMITIVES-Creating Primitive & Folkart dolls are my passion. I love the simplicity of the Primitive style and the Whimsy of Folk Art! I incorporate that love into each and every handmade item I create. I simply love every minute of it! Here in my little shop I value quality over quantity. I put my whole heart, time, patience and lots of attention to detail into every single piece of art I create, along with imagination, uniqueness and whimsy! I don't have anyone working for me. I create each and every doll, every stitch, every detail from start to finish. When you add one of my items to your home you can be assured that it was completely handcrafted by me and only me. Not only do I put time and attention to detail into the appearance of my items, but also into the quality of the work itself and the materials used. I make sure that my items are solid, sturdy and well constructed. I realize that my items aren't just a decoration for one season, or one holiday. I know they will be brought out year after year, or on display every day of the year. Some will be given to loved ones and special friends as gifts or even handed down to children and grandchildren... they become part of a family and a home so I make sure each one is special. I also use only non-toxic materials in the creation of my items and nothing that I use has a chemical odor. The only scent my dolls will have are the wonderful, pleasant, heart-warming smells of coffee, tea, cinnamon or vanilla. My items are also from a completely smoke free environment. I enjoy knowing that the items I create with my whole heart, here in my home, surrounded by the love of my family, will be treasured by my customers as a part of their own home and family.

DIY Rusty Bedspring Christmas Tree

Everyone loves simple DIY Primitive Christmas crafts! Here's an adorable little Christmas Tree that's easy and fun to make! Read on for simple directions! 
( I didn't make this one, I found this pic courtesy of Pinterest, but it's easy enough to explain!)

This little tree actually uses TWO rusty bed springs ( these can be purchased on Ebay, get a few different sizes)
The bottom of the tree is a mason jar lid. (You can purchase mason jar lids without the jars on Ebay or you can use one from an old mason jar you have laying around the house, some you can even purchase already 'rusted')
Glue the smaller of the two rusty bed springs into the bottom of the upside down mason jar lid. Allow to dry thoroughly.
"Wrap" the larger rusty bed spring around the glued in smaller one. Tada! You have your tree!
Simply cut  some garland into small pieces and glue here and there on the bed springs, ( I also think  the pieces would look cute tied on with some hemp cord or twine)  glue on some bright red berries and attach a little rusty star at the top ( or any other decoration you choose!)
Have fun!!
