Christmas Tree Ornaments

For my second Christmas post today, I'm sharing something a little retro : little dress-form tree ornaments. I was inspired by minature felt garments that Tone Finnanger made. Here I adapted them for paper.



Just draw your tent dress or sweater pattern. Cut them out twice on pattern paper. On the second piece include glue tabs along the top and sides to hold your ornament together. To embellishment I used ribbons, trims and Webster's cabochon flowers. The wire hangers were simply re-purposed paper clips.




If you fancy more Christmas inspiration, head over to Artfull Crafts' Christmas Countdown. This week they have a Cards to Impress challenge where you can win two of my favourite Christmas collection papers. It's all happening over here.

these parties.

Supplies : Best Creation Merry Christmas papers, Webster's Pages Roses in Bloom, ribbons, trims, paper clips

Hello Sandy!

Stopping by for the first time. Very sweet ornaments! So easy and yet so cute. I have a few little girls in my life that would love these. Maybe even easy enough to make together.

Kindly, Lorraiine

I made mini gowns out of fabric, embellished them and hung them on little wire hangers I made. But I love these. I have so much scrap paper I could use. Thanks!
