Vintage Halloween Feather Tree Ornament…

Oct 16, 2009

I LOVE mak­ing these orna­ments. Ans­ley says they are freaky and cer­tain­ly not her most favorite project I have ever cre­at­ed but I am stand­ing strong when I say, “I love them, I real­ly, real­ly love them and I will make them for every hol­i­day.”

If you would like to make one of these orna­ments here is how to do it. Using wire cut­ters, cut a piece from a green Che­nille Bump Stem so that you have two bumps on one piece (legs) and then either one or two bumps on a sec­ond piece (arms). I like to have two bumps for the arms so that I can curl the hands in to hold items. If I use one bump I find that the arms are too short. Next all you do is fold the bump stem for the legs in half so that the skin­ny part is at the top mid­dle, slip the sec­ond piece through the top and twist the arms around one or two times to secure them in place. To cre­ate the head print your vin­tage image onto heavy white card­stock, cut it out and attach it to the top of the bump stem using a strong liq­uid adhe­sive. Accent the post­card image using Dia­mond Stick­les. Using wire cut­ters cut one bump stem from a black Che­nille Bump Stem and wrap around the waist sec­tion of the orna­ment. Cre­ate a lit­tle ban­ner with the “Boo” sen­ti­ment and place it in the orna­ments hand, attach a hang­er using black embroi­dery floss and there ya go. You have a lit­tle repli­ca of a vin­tage feath­er tree orna­ment.
