The Ornaments

Each year, I make a set of ornaments to give as gifts. This year, I decided to use some of the vintage tart tins and Jell-O molds I’ve been collecting for years. I have them in all kinds of shapes – hearts, stars, bells, flowers…

I searched and searched in EVERY box, drawer, cubby, and cabinet in my craft room, and they were no where to be found. I even thought my husband might be sneaking into my craft room and throwing things out behind my back! I managed to find a few very old, rusty, grungy tins. They would have to do.

I added a cut out of vintage sheet music to the background. Then I added a tiny bottle brush tree that I glittered, a teeny wrapped present, and a darling little Santa.

A glittered edge of Platinum Stickles gives some added bling to the tart tins.

Two weeks later, I finally found my collection of tins – in a small box sitting right under my desk. They have now been moved to a storage box labeled “TINS”. If you happen to see my husband with this box, tell him you know what he’s up to!

This is my last post for 2016. I hope you have the merriest Christmas, the happiest New Year, and the most blessed time with family and friends.
