More Swap Ornaments

Couple more ornaments made for the Ongoing Ornament Swap. The first one was made for @Lilyleaper for her Scandinavian/Nordic theme.

It’s made from an unfinished wood bracelet I had in stash.

I strung some wooden beads on either side and suspended the little bird in the middle. Crocheted a band to surround the bracelet.


The second ornament was for @Edel. A flamingo for her flamingo tree.


The head and neck are leather, worked over a wire so it would hold its shape. Then I piled on the sequins, because I do love sparkly Christmas trees. (It was hard to resist using sequins on the Nordic ornament, but I did manage.)

Thanks everyone! They were fun to make. I had so much pent-up crafting energy after not making things for so long.

These are both gorgeous and so unique to each other. I never would have guessed the same person made them. You really know how to work with a theme. They are both equally as stunning. Lucky partners!
