Hand Painted Christmas Ornaments, Black and White Checks, Stripes, Harlequin Designs and a Giant Kissing Ball

giant colorful Christmas kissing ball ornament
Hi again.
I feel like I've been blogging a lot lately... which is so unlike me. ;)
In case you missed them I recently posted about my painted beachy Christmas stockings 
and decorative molding Christmas trees and last month I shared the 

giant whimsical check and stripes Christmas ornament
I had a few more ornaments I wanted to share, as well as this
fabulous creation, a giant, colorful, whimsical kissing ball... 
or archway/doorway ornament or...hang from a chandelier or over a table ornament.
It's whatever you want it to be.
Use it as a focal point over a table for other celebrations 
throughout the year as well.

 I created it in the style of my other ornaments by combining a shatterproof
ball ornament (about 10"diameter in this case) with different foam shapes
to create my own one of a kind ornament designs.

Completely hand painted starting with a little animal print
at the top, followed by black and off white checks with 
other colors brushed in for the large ball part.

Under the checked ball is another ball shape painted berry pink
with metallic gold dots. That ball is topped with
jingle bell fringe and red beaded fringe.

Below that is a smaller black and cream striped ball circled with 
green striped ribbon, topped with more jingle bells
and finished with a pale green acrylic knob.

Uh's huge. 
This beauty is 17" long, 20" long including the hanger.
I showed it hanging with a few of my 4.75" diameter ornaments
just to give you an idea.
I don't know that I would use it on a tree, unless you just
happen to have a huge tree with other giant ornaments.

Attach a little mistletoe to it to create a true kissing ball.
Where ever you hang it, it's sure to be a conversation piece!

I also added a few more black and cream check style
ornaments that are always so popular.

reversible black and white check star ornaments
These are large 7" lightweight paper mache stars.
Only one set of these are available. 
Painted on both sides so they are lovely from any angle.

Since they are painted on both sides they would look cute in a 
window or hanging from a mantel or garland too.
They are topped with a high gloss finish.

I also made a couple of the 

hand painted striped ornaments
accented with lots of gold dots.

I made lots more of the large black and white check
ball ornaments since the first batch already sold out.

Like I mentioned in my last post, I don't use patterns or stencils
so there could be a imperfect brushstroke or two but
I think it adds to the hand painted charm!

To mix it up, I painted 

large quilted animal print ornament
I also painted a couple of extra large quilted leopard ornaments.
They are about 6" diameter with a black and white striped cap.

And that is it for the ornaments this year!
I'm kind of excited I have them all painted and ready to go.
This is actually the first year this has happened so yay me!

Don't forget about the sea life stockings, a couple of designs have
already sold out but still lots to choose from.
