With Christmas so near,
It time to share
a few hand created ornaments you can also make for quick gift ideas.
This season I'm putting to use sweet little tart pans.
I find these little treasures junkin and antiquing.
They are perfect to create an original design using
all those bits and bobs in your stash of craft supplies.
The skies the limit to how you can embellish these little cuties.
Here are a few of the pans I found recently.
The finished designs will be available in my etsy shoppe
Where my Christmas SALE begins today through Jan.1st. 2017.
Using coupon code
CHRISTMAS25 at checkout.
So as you can see, I gather up all the tart pans in my stash.
Some I paint and others I leave unfinished.
To the bell shape pan, I add musical graphic paper to the background with stars.
Tinsel and snow with a little tree and reindeer are the centerpiece.
Adding a little greeting at the top with a bough of evergreen
completes the ornament.
To hang and display, I simply glued on a ribbon before I added the evergreen around the edge.
This helps hold the ribbon in place and keep the ornament hanging straight without tilting backwards or forwards.
This one was designed using sky paper for the background and I hand painted snowflakes over the paper and sealed with modpodge.
Tinsel, a tree topped with a star and a sweet little hand painted snowman
standing in the snow takes center stage.
To the side of the shapes I like to add lace or more tinsel
after I place the hanging ribbon in place.
This one was fun to create using a felt reindeer
with a musical background paper.
Tinsel, trims and side lace with snow and word ribbon complete another bell shape tart pan.
For the round pans,
I again left this one original and just added pretty plaid paper for the background.
A vintage deer ornament takes center stage with tinsel,
poly filling sprinkled with glitter for the snow
a little sign saying rejoice added to complete with an ornament to fill in the space.
For the bow I just tied a bow from yarn and added a dot of glitter glue.
To the backside I added more paper
for a little note to be written when used as a gift.
A sharpie pen works great here to leave a message, greeting or date.
To this round pan,
I painted the back ground with a soft sky blue.
The star in the center is cut from wood with my hand painted
country snow scene.
I then added tinsel, a star in the sky, ribbon, lace around the pan and of course,
lots of glittered snow!
This last little pan was also painted in an ivory color
with added tree, glittered snow and Noel message
in the background.
I drilled a little hole at the top for the hanging thread.
let me share here,
for the snow, I use tube acrylic paint in white.
You can place it on the area you want for snow applying it thickly
and glitter while it's still wet.
It takes longer to dry but looks like real snow and stays in place.
So there you have some ideas for little tart pans
and all the little embellishments in your stash of crafting supplies.
Before I go,
I want to share a beautiful hand created card I received from Connie
Connie designs cards using many of the designer supplies and tools
meant for card artists like herself.
Her work is amazing and I always enjoy viewing each and every creation.
It has been an inspiration to visit her blog over the years.
She also does something very special too~~~
for her comment followers she sends,
a lovely card, hand created just for you.
This is the beauty she sent to me.
Love this darling vase filled with flowers.
Connie hand crocheted around each button to form the flowers.
Adding embellishments to her design to complete
for the perfect card original.
Thank you Connie, I will enjoy this and plan to frame it in the new year.
Another beautiful creation I won and received right after Thanksgiving
and Linda has an
Etsy shoppe too called,
I won a beautiful hand created
bookmark from Linda.
I love it and all the gorgeous details Linda adds to her treasures.
Lace, buttons, ribbons, and words.
I collect bookmarks so this is very special.
I love the word Hope and it arrived at just the right time
when I needed to read this word.
Made with fabric with lace overlay, buttons and more make this extra special.
Thank you Linda.
So happy I won this beauty and I will enjoy it greatly!
Now just one more thing!
