Bowl of ornaments for my DIY beaded Christmas tree; beaded and embellished fabric, mini grapevine wreaths, glittered winged hearts found in the scrap-booking section of a craft store.
I used vintage salt shakers to make the tassel ornaments. I just wired through the shaker holes to make the hanger, then glued in a ready-made tassel in the hole at the bottom, replacing the stopper. I added a little trim at the top of the tassel, and done! I love the variety of vintage shakers available.
Another tassel ornament...I am partial to birds.
One of my mosaic bowls filled with Christmas cheer!
here. The tip of each branch is decorated with a fragrant anise pod. The "trunk" of the tree is also wrapped in ribbon and is mounted into a fabric-wrapped wooden block. I wish I had a before photo of this sad little tree, it was the perfect candidate for wrapping and embellishing!
A little holiday flourish on this sweet bird sculpture, gifted to me by the immensely talented Maria Wimmer, (check out her blog here) completes my Christmas vignette! Are you having fun yet? Happy decorating!
