Mary Beth used a lid from a jar candle as the base for her ornament. I hadn't seen that done before, but I'm tickled to have a potential use for these lids. I usually throw them away because I can seldom think of anything to do with them.
The green wreath and "Merry Christmas" is a paper design that Mary Beth designed and then cut from paper. I think an appropriate sized cut-out from a repurposed Christmas card might be even more fun and so I'm going to try that.
The Santa at the left of the ornament is from a 3-D gift tag. When I see these tags, I often think there must be a creative way to re-use them. This is it!
And the bottle brush tree was just a little inexpensive generic one until Mary Beth sprinkled it with sparkly star sequins. What a difference just a little sparkle makes!
Mary Beth's post on how to make a vintage style ornament has really inspired me. Why not go take a look and see what you might create on this summer day? I've noticed that working on a Christmas craft can sometimes make me feel a little bit cooler!
