This year we have our first full-size Yule tree! We had literally 3 ornaments so I rushed into making some to make our tree less naked.
Growing up we had two angel ornaments from the seventies woth whispy hair. I loved them the most. I wanted something like that and I had a vintage unfinished ornament kit I had picked up thrifting. The kit unfortunately was missing multiple pieces and the instructions didn’t make any sense. But the head was really cute! I loved the whispy hair of the angels my parents have and the hair on the head was misbehaving so I cut it off and glued on yarn, then unwound it, brushed it out, and cut it to look like a weird whispy mess. Lol its on purpose. I wanted it to look like the others! I bought the fluffy pipecleaners a while back for this sort of project, so I made the body, wrapped it in a dress and a collar, and I attached some vintage angel wings I bought from the same thrift store! The gift was also part of the kit, along with the halo. I love her so much. She looks so sweet and she’s half-vintage!
A quick ornament stuffed with lace, the cap wrapped in sparkly furry string, and a flower glued on. Hung on more lace.
This one is a styrofoam ball wrapped in fabric. I topped it with a vintage doily, then wrapped ribbon around to secure.
I love those old pin ornaments so I like to try to mimic them as much as possible. I used some vintage lace flowers.
And a diorama ornament. Obviously i’ve been stocking up for quite awhile on vintage-y items for ornaments.
Aaand a Patron-cork mushroom:
Thanks for looking!
