Here are a few more ornaments I made for the ongoing swap. I forgot to take pictures of some of them, so am borrowing the photos the recipients took. (Hope that’s okay with everyone!)
First up, a “cooking utensils” ornament for @marionberries.
It makes me so happy that the rolling pin actually turns! The spatula was my favorite to make.
Next, for @Riechan’s “cute animals in hats”, I did this koala, hugging a candy cane. The hat is crocheted and the hands and feet are held together with elastic. She can switch out the candy cane.
Next for @marionberries again, this tough and a bit risqué “non traditional Santa”.
His head is a small gourd.
His body is a cardboard/paper mache ornament from a craft site. It was supposed to be a diorama ornament, so it had a hole cut out. I turned it so the diorama hole was at the bottom, and then drilled a hole and enlarged it until it was big enough for the neck of the gourd.
The legs are strong cardboard - shoe inserts.
They were painted, then tied to the bottom of the neck after the neck was inserted into the body.
Then I just painted his body all over, and did the tattoos mostly with a Sharpie.
Last, a retro felt ornament for @curiousfae.
It’s pink on one side and turquoise on the other. Because I love ornaments that sparkle, it has sequins all over it and a shiny cardboard circle that spins in the cutout, to catch the light.
This swap was a blast!
