More Ornament Ideas

Hello there! By now you might be getting sick of all the ornaments I keep posting....but I have two more :)
I really enjoy making ornaments and love to make all different types. They make great gifts!

The first one is another felt design. I used Lori Whitlock's bird studio file (Silhouette) and cut out the bird/heart shapes on cardstock. Then, I used the cardstock as a template to cut my felt. I stitched the bird together with red thread, added the SRM sentiment sticker (Fancy sticker sentiment- Love) on a piece of vellum and attached it to the hanger, tied with Twinery ribbon and a bell. I used Helmar Premium Craft Glue to attach the heart wing to the bird.

Next, I have a glass ornament. This was easy. I filled a glass ornament (you can find them at most craft stores) with silver paint and swirled it around. Actually, I swirled it around and shook it all over myself because I forgot to put the top on before doing that. Doh!

After cleaning up that mess....I got back to work. I printed out the beautiful nativity scene (by Lori Whitlock) using my Silhouette onto black vinyl. In order, to make it work for the circle glass ornament, I did have to trim the original a tiny bit (removed the two support bars on either side of the manger.)

I peeled the backing off and stuck it right on the ornament. I finished it off with a tiny crystal over the star and some red tulle.

Hope you are inspired to make some of your own. Apparently, I have to make one with a bunny on it because we recently got a dwarf rabbit :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for your ornament ideas. We had a flood in our basement last spring and lost all of our Christmas treasures plus my stamps for every holiday.So after 35 years of marriage ,we are starting anew finding/creating new memories for ourselves and the family!
Happy holidays to you and your family.

Not a bit tired of seeing them - keep 'em coming! Oh my, Cammie, I can't choose a favorite here! I do so love the nativity, but that little bird is just begging to be hung on our tree (if we ever get one put up!)!!! What a little darling that is! Thanks for the inspiration, you rock!!!

both ornaments look wonderful. I had to chuckle about your paint accident. Sounds like something I would do.
Hugs and smiles
