One of my most favorite things to do to prepare for the Christmas Season is to make my own ornaments.
There are so many beautiful religious images that truly speak to my soul.
Painted metal tags and glitter ....
...are all one needs to create these beauties.
Hand rolled clay.....
....glitter and beads....
...and some vintage holy medals....
....gently pressed into the clay.....
...leave a soulful imprint.
...painted creamy white.....
...and adorned with Holy images....
...and German Glass glitter...
...add a lovely sparkle to the tree.
Plain white coasters....
....adorned with images of statuary I photographed at my beloved seaside burial ground...
.....a little glitter.....
...a little sparkle....
.....creamy pearl beads....
...and vintage seam binding.....
....make even the simplest of ornaments....
...look just heavenly!"
...like old watch cases....
(O Marie is sold)
...and vintage rhinestone brooches...
(rhinestone one is sold)
...all send a blessed message of love and hope this Christmas Season.
(some....soon for sale in my ETSY shop)
