For the past 4 years or so I've painted giant whimsical
Christmas ornaments and this year is no exception.
I got one of my tomato cage topiary trees down from the attic
to photograph them. I made the topiaries almost 6 years ago
and they are still going strong.
Since I rework new shatterproof ornaments and create my own, each year the
shapes are a little different and these are the shapes I came up with this year.
Large 6" and smaller almost 5" diameter. The lengths vary from 9-11" long.
You might remember these versions from last year.
I even show you how I made them in my whimsical Christmas ornament post.
Use the Christmas Ornaments category tab to see all past ornaments.
I also painted a few large black and white checked ball ornaments
with no finial pieces this year.
They are 6" diameter with hand painted black and white checks.
I also combined the checked ornaments with polka dot onion shaped finial pieces...
I really have a lot of fun combining all the different colors and patterns.
This ornament is deep pink with a touch of animal print and stripes
Of course I had to throw in a couple of peacock feather ornaments too.
And it wouldn't be Christmas...around my house anyway...
without a little animal print.
And a polka dot leopard print ornament too.
These ornaments are like little works of art for your tree...
or hang from garland or a chandelier.
Each one is hand made and hand painted. I don't use stencils or patterns and you may see an imperfect brushstroke or two but it only adds to their artistic charm.
Visit my Etsy shop to see all of them.
Thanks for being here...until next time!
