I know, it may seem a bit early to be thinking of Christmas already, but I just can't help myself! The other day I made a few ornaments that I'm taking to my booth, and thought I'd share them with you today.
I had fun making a bunch of these last year, so I thought I'd make a few and see how they sell in my booth before I go hog wild making a ton of them!
I began with clear plastic ornaments from Michael's. (No worries about breakage, yeah!) Then came the fun part: filling them with hand torn strips of vintage sheet music, and embellishing them with crinkly seam binding, glittery silver stars, and dainty little glittered silk flowers. I am in love with this gorgeous aqua seam binding! Since I only had white silk flowers, I just brushed their petals with a bit of Mod Podge, then dusted them with some light blue flocking from Martha Stewart. I think they came out quite nicely!
And for the ornaments below, I used my favorite taupe seam binding, and just added some glitter to the flowers. Because you can never have too much glitter!
They are so much fun to make, and they look so pretty gathered in this wire basket for their photo shoot, I think!
The wire basket was also one of my most recent creations. I love wire anything, and was thrilled when I discovered this three tiered beauty last week while out thrifting! It was black when I first discovered it, but I thought it would look oh so much better painted a creamy white! It was quite challenging spray painting all of that wire!Etsy shop.
Oooh, la, la!
