More Christmas Ornament Creating!

Hi Everyone!
In my last post I shared this ornament card
and the steps to creating it.
Thank you for you visits and comments.
I hope you might try it and have some fun.
If you are interested in the how to, just scroll down to the next post.

Since that post
 I thought I would share a few more ideas
I've been working on and a few from last season too.

 Here are a few more quick and easy ideas.

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

Here are the supplies  needed.
The rest is up to your own creativity
and imagination.

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 a message.

Tinsel trimmed.

It looks so pretty on the tree.

The following is a variety of ideas
you might like to try.
Again the supplies were gathered from Dollar bins
at the craft stores.

Love the red snowflake for a pop of color.

Backside with designer paper  left blank to write a message.

Backside star to write greeting.

Since creating this ornament, 
I have decided to copy and print the fan graphic on both sides of the paper.
This allows the backside to look just as pretty as the front.

I always find vintage molds on my junkin hunts
and they too make sweet ornaments.

For these below I used wood shapes with added graphics,
glitter and trims of tinsel and ribbons.
I glued the shapes inside the molds raised a bit with another
block of wood all hot glued in place.

I also use distress ink or paint adding to the edge of the wood
and papers.

Graphic papers cut to the wood shapes with charms.
They finish these old molds
to make sweet ornaments.

Here are a few more in a white theme.

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

Inspire dreams~

or creative journey!

  This next ornament is designed using an old cookie cutter and
created the same way.
With wood shapes raised and glued in place on
another small block of wood.
Trims, glitter, and charms add the finishing touch over chalk
paint with distress.
I drill a hole in the tops of the molds to add a ribbon for
hanging on the Christmas tree.

Every  year ornaments seem to be
the best sellers in my shoppe.
I never get all that I want to offer completed.

It's an on going journey year round
and one I truly love and  thankful for.

Hand made ornaments for giving
at Christmas are so special 
and like nothing you
will find in the stores.
I think they are as wonderful to give as to create.

Thank you for stopping by,
 and a big welcome to all new followers.
So nice to meet you and have your visits.

Stay Warm!!
till next time,
Wishing you,
Southern DayDreams~
Celestina Marie

Oh wow! You have so many gorgeous ornaments here, Celestina, I just can't pick a favorite! So many great ideas, and I love how you've used things that are either thrifted, like the vintage metal molds, or from the dollar bins. Love the fleur de lis and of course all of the glitter. I will have to go thru your post again, love them all! Thank you for sharing:)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

They are all so pretty, Celeste! I have plans to go to Michaels this afternoon and I always check their dollar bins. Maybe something will jump out at me as an idea. I do have several of those little frames that I picked up last year - in gold- thinking, I'm sure, of something Christmas related. I should pull those out and do something with them.

Cynthia said...

Simply gorgeous! Thank you, for the inspiration, Celestina!

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Celestina. I really love the pinwheel ornament. In fact, I made a few for my tree this year (before I saw yours). That's why mine aren't as pretty!! The only thing I didn't do is surround the edges in tinsel and when I saw yours I went to Ben Franklin's (which is the only craft store in my town) and their's was really stiff and not the right kind. I love that finished look, where did you find yours?..They all look so pretty and you are such a talent..Happy Thanksgiving..Judy

Bente said...

Oh my, you have been busy, Celestina. Love your creations.
Hugs from here

Red Rose Alley said...

These ornaments are so pretty, Celestina. I think my favorite is the snowflake, and that angel is precious also. Homemade ornaments are the best. I still have a few that the kids made when they were little that I'll always keep. It looks like you are getting into the Christmas spirit. It's the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it?

Happy Thanksgiving to you, my dear friend.


miss b said...

I can see that you love this time of year when you can really experiment and be so creative. I like the way you use the music as a background and my favourite decoration is the one with the cute robin whic has such a vintage look. You use so many different textures to create something truly unique. Enjoy your weekend!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Of course they are all gorgeous!! I often find molds and have no idea what to do with them,,,,Great ideas!!


Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I am SO glad it is Saturday morning and that next week, it is an entire week off from teaching due to the holiday. Celeste, it is a joy to be here to read you, to watch your creations keep scrolling down and making me smile. I LOVE the cookie cutter idea. I wish I still had the old cookie cutters that my mom used every Christmas for her famous sugar cookies. Lovely ideas, and today, I am working on a little project that has been waiting for me here at home. ENJOY THE WEEKEND! Anita

Debbie said...

I had to catch up on your posts, Celestina. You've been busy!
You are so creative, and everything is always done to perfection.
All of the ornaments are lovely.
I love the tinsel, and glitter you add to them.
It's always a treat to visit here.
Enjoy your weekend.
