I love decorating the house for Christmas but must admit some years I decorate more than others. The one thing that is pretty consistent during every holiday season is my love for old fashioned ornaments. I have one 4′ tree that sits on top of a table and is decorated with all handmade paper ornaments that reminds me of an old Victorian Christmas. This year, I plan on adding a few additional ornaments to this tree that I feel will accent it beautifully. Although, to balance out the tree I’m going to have to create more of each ornament using different stamps from my Antiquated Collection stamp sets.
This ornament was created using the Antiquated Collection ~ Society Lady Stamp Set. This could easily be turned into a brooch or placed on top of a gift wrapped in Kraft paper then tied with a bow using a long torn strip of natural muslin. The recipient could then us this accent on their gift as an ornament for their tree next year. The trims, chipboard piece and pearl cluster button are all by Maya Road.
So do you make ornaments for your tree or are they all store bought? My tree is mixed with both handmade and department store ornaments.
