Creative Ornament Ideas Continued~~

A few days ago I shared with you
a tutorial for
this ornament.
 If you would like to
create it using the steps provided,
Since that post
we were hit with  winter weather
here in Texas and very cold temps.
Not snowed in, but cold temps with
sleet and drizzling rain.

And for me it's
 the perfect combo for creating
and getting into the holiday spirit.

So here are a few more ornament ideas
that are quick and easy.

Perfect for gifts,
sending as a card in a bubble envelope
or tying on a package.

Here are a few items needed.
The rest is up to your own creativity
and imagination.

Great to do with the kids
for home bound projects
 when the weather keeps them home from school.

This framed angel
is another ornament card I created.
Most of the supplies are gathered
from the Dollar Stores,
Michael's  and  JoAnn's  Dollar  section
along with bits and pieces left from other projects.

Backside with designer paper
to open for message.

Tinsel trimmed.

It looks so pretty on the tree.

The following is a variety of ideas
you might like to try.

Backside with designer paper for message.

Backside star to write greeting.

These are a few
created with vintage molds
or cookie cutters.

Inside the mold I added wood glittered snowflakes
with word messages, like~

Inspire dreams~

or creative journey!

 The next 3 ornaments are hand painted however and
included in my
yearly Sampler set
of ornaments.

Vintage cookie cutter~
hand painted and distressed.

Hand cut and painted wood rose birdie.

or tiny glass ornament
perfect for a small tree
or gift giving
all offered in a 3pc Sampler Set.

Every year ornaments seem to be
the best sellers on line.
I never get all that I want to offer
designed and created.

It's an on going journey
but one I truly love
and so thankful for.

So on that note,
I wish for you
a very
Happy Thanksgiving
filled with family and friends
love and blessings.

They are all so pretty, Celeste! I have a bunch of those frames from Michaels. I can never seem to pass them up! I should make a couple of ornaments with them. It will give me the new ornament I usually like to get each year to add to the tree.

Happy Thanksgiving! : )

Hi Celestina Marie,

Love all the pretty Christmas decorations you have made.
Happy thanksgiving dear friend and hope you have a happy week.
Stay warm and sending hugs

Creations by Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie said...

Each ornament has so much personality Celeste! My fav is the medallions, very cool. You've been so busy haven't you? We saw the storm was hitting Texas hard and now it's moving to the north. Just east of us will get 6" of the white stuff. We've been busy here too and getting the big bird ready for roasting tomorrow... we cook the turkey the day before so the oven is free for all the goodies on T-day.

Much love to you and Larry! I'm so thankful that you are my friends!

Dear Celestina,
So happy you are back on the blogs, we have missed you. You were so sweet to visit me and now here I am visiting you.
Love the ornaments, especially the first one and the angel. Oh and the cookie cutters are so very cute.Isn't the dollar store fun? We all seem to find things we can use there and at the right price of $1.00
Don 't know if you noticed that my side bar is down at the bottom, would you happen to know how to fix this? No one seems to know. I put up a new post and nothing changed, it's still at the bottom.

Wanted to wish you a Very Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Lu

Christina Paul said...

Oh I love these! You have such a great eye for combining designs and textures- I just love vintage images- and so funny I just used the same angel with tree for a project!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Each is more beautiful than the last! Your ornaments are gorgeous and creative, too. You are amazing!
Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
