Christmas tree—Handmade Ornaments Update

Monday, December 17, 2012

It’s taking me awhile to get all the ornaments made; namely, because of have orders to do at the same time. I don’t usually do anything else besides orders unless I know I’m caught up—and this weekend I had a chance to make some red and green snowflake garland, vintage theme tree tags, more rosettes, and two other types of snow flake ornaments. This is the first time I’ve ever decorated a tree by myself and I’m so excited that 90% of all the decorations on the tree will be handmade. I didn’t know—at first—which direction this tree would go in; and, I’m so happy that its taken on this vintage vibe. I’m so geeky, but when I’m sitting at the table making my ornaments I’m always thinking, “This is how they must have done it way in the olden times”. So random, haha. Anywho, the tree still isn't complete and I plan on finishing it today after I’ve shipped out my last orders! I’m so looking forward to revealing the entire tree when it’s complete.

  1. Beautiful! I'm having to come up with new ideas because when we moved 3/4 of our Christmas decorations were put in storage. I'm slightly devestated. Maybe I can get creative like you and still have a pretty Christmas :-)

  4. I love the snow flake garlands. I'm doing a lot more hand crafted Christmas decorations, since I'm still trying to replace all of our decorations that were lost in Hurricane Ike.
