Vintage Handmade Foam Core Ornaments

I've been looking for and picking up some handmade ornaments.  I just love all those trims, sequins, beads etc.  I love to try making anything at least once and I can't wait to try my hand at these.  Here is what I have found so far...


 I stumbled across this diorama.  I found a kit a couple years ago with a similar them and construction. 
Pipe cleaner/chenille trees and bushes and a glittered paper star!  This has to be my favorite.  I've got some mini Santa and angels, they'd be great for this kind of thing.

Here are the fabric covered balls with braid trims, sequins and beads.  I got them all at the same time, they are similar in style and I get the feeling they may have been kits--or?

  1. Wow! These ornaments are so pretty! I love the one with the deer!
    I have a fabulous pink ornament kit that a good blogger friend gave me last year. I still need to make it though. Maybe some evening this week!
    Thanks for sharing Evie!

  3. I have at least 25 of these on my tree; I went to Lee Wards all thru high school aiming at having a 'home-made' tree when I grew up...still love to put them on the tree every year in addition to all of the children's macaroni and hand drawn creations from pre-school and grade school. Keep hunting!
