Here are a couple more ornaments made for the recent Ongoing Ornament Swap. Both were made for @Lothruin.
First, for her llama theme:
It is wool felt with loops of chenille yarn. And a few sequins and Pom poms.
Next, for her “thrifted/2nd hand materials” theme:
I’m proud to say that 99% of the materials were thrifted or second-hand. (Only exception was the hot glue.)
The base is a little baking tin. I cut some of it off to make it a bit smaller. Then drilled 3 holes in it and added the hanger and the dangling little bells.
Then added the bottle brush trees and the plastic foliage (from a tacky vintage candle ring.) I think the leaping deer was meant to go in a corsage or flower arrangement; it had a pipe cleaner stuck to it, which I put through a hole I drilled in the back. A sequin hides the attachment point.
Added the edge trimmings last. The “Merry Christmas” message is leather or vinyl “ribbon” I found at a garage sale.
I may need to make another leaping deer ornament for myself. I especially liked how that one turned out, with its vintage-kitschy vibe.
This swap was a blast!
