Victorian Christmas

Nov 28, 2011

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.

I cre­at­ed this orna­ment using the Anti­quat­ed Col­lec­tion ~ Fine and Dandy, Soci­ety Lady & Per­fumery Stamp Sets by Pink Per­sim­mon. The Scal­lop Frames and Hang­ing Chan­de­lier Beads are by Maya Road.

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.
