Handmade Christmas Decorations

On Sunday, I posted about my snowflake ornament, which at the time had no tree to be displayed upon!

We finally have our Christmas tree up, so I was able to take some decent pictures of the other ornaments I made recently :)

I made a few of these little dove ornaments using some leftover felt. They were inspired by the cute DIY Dove Ornaments I saw at Sweet Suite 10 ! Mine are much smaller and lack a proper tail or eyes, because I wanted a simpler feel to them.

This tutu ornament was made after reading Mindie's fab Tutu Ornament Tutorial over at Bacon Time With The Hungry Hungry Hypo! In addition to tulle, I used some gold mesh that was left over from a costume I made a few years back.

These star ornaments are my favourite of the ones I made this year! They were inspired by the heart-shaped Typography Ornaments that I saw on Tatertots and Jello!

I cut all the shapes with pinking shears, and wrote on the 'tags' with a regular gold pen.

Here's the snowflake ornament again, in situ (albeit temporarily). My Dad went out on Monday and dug up a real tree, which he potted up today. I nipped outside before he started the potting to snap a few photos of my ornaments! The tree is now potted up outside the front door, covered with lights :) As for the ornaments, they're safely indoors on our artificial tree--which is just as well, since we had a freak shower of hail a few hours after the pictures were taken!
