Deck your halls—or even just a cabinet door—with a snowflake ornament made from vintage skeleton keys. To make it, secure keys to a 2-inch metal ring using 24-gauge wire, pulling it taut as you wrap. Spray on white paint, then rub with 220-grit sandpaper for a weathered patina. Add a ribbon and hang to make any space merrier.
