Handmade Decorations

Today I'm showing off some of my handmade ornaments. I have been finishing these up the last few nights in a burst of creativity.

Some vintage-inspired ornaments:
They are covered with vintage paper, vintage trims, glitter, lace & buttons.

Paper & Felt Flowers:
These flowers make a statement with vintage paper backgrounds & felt flower & leaves in the center.
Each ornament is bordered with silver glitter & punched out stars.
I attached some of these to the branches of my tree using clothes pins.
If you have some of my "pin-ups" this is a cute way to use them.

Little Houses:

 These little house ornaments were made to be gifts for some lucky people in my family. I love how they turned out. I am keeping one of the pink ones for myself and gifting the others. They are made of heavy-weight paper & decorated with vintage papers & trims.
I still have a few more in the works - hopefully to be finished tonight.  I was looking for a way to give out the girl's school pictures but wanted to do something different than just a wallet or a pic in a frame.
I think I will make a new one of these each year and start a collection!


If you would like one of these for your tree I am selling the supplies as a kit.

Little House Kit includes:
1 cardboard house, paper in the color scheme of your choice, vintage trims & elements & a 2010 hand stamped date.
You add your own pictures & decorate it the way you like.
Kit price: $5

 Or, I can make the entire house for you if you prefer - you provide me with the pictures.
Finished House: $10

 If you are interested, please email me.

More Snowman Plaques:
I can't decide which one of these to keep for myself & which ones to sell or give away.
Any suggestions?
(Sorry about the dark photos - when I went to use the flash I got a glare.)


I had to end with this photo of Hannah playing with "Penny Brite" a doll from the 1960's.

 Who needs Barbie when you have a retro doll with great "vintage" style!

If you saw anything you would like for your own tree, please let me know as I would be happy to do a custom order. Each of my ornaments is one of a kind.
Thanks for looking & have a great day!
Please stop by tomorrow for more Christmas pics.

  1. It's Dec. 28th and I'm just catching up on your blog. The Christmas crafts are wonderful. I love the Frosty plaques made from the book illustrations! The snow white lace plate is a perfect backdrop for the print. I would like a house kit for Noah's Christmas picture. I'll describe the photo to you to coordinate the paper and trims. Sooo cute Kate!
