I've been creating these hand painted ornaments since 2011,
Click on the Christmas Ornaments Category to see all the posts.
Thought I would share some of the ones I made for 2015.
I'm kind of proud of myself for working on them throughout the summer
and have most of them listed in my Etsy shop... yay!
Some of the styles have already sold out but I am sharing them anyway.
This year I painted several sets of these cute shatterproof
bird ornaments in whimsical leopard print with dotted gold wings.
People seem to love the black and white check ornaments so
I painted more of those. Painting free hand checks on a round
surface is not the easiest task but once I get going, it starts to flow.
I painted black and white check star ornaments and
gold check star ornaments. They are lightweight paper mache and
painted on all sides so they look great from any angle.
Large whimsical ornaments with dots, checks and leopard print.
I create these by combining new ornaments to create one of a kind
large finial ornaments.
They are quite large at up to 15" long and about 6" diameter.
This is the last remaining set in the large finial ornaments.
Lots of hand painted details go into each ornament. No stencils or
patterns are used so they are all unique.
I also had some fun painting these metal angel ornaments
in bright whimsical colors.
Who says angels don't like animal print? ;)
These animal print angel ornaments are large also, about 10" including
the hangers but super lightweight.
This set of black and white check angel ornaments have touches
of leopard on their robes, deep pink tops and metallic wings.
They are all painted in solid metallic gold on the back.
More large painted ornaments... about 10" long.
Last year I added a couple of giant hand painted "kissing balls" to my
ornament selection and decided to add a few this year too.
They are pretty large, about 22" long, and pretty fantastical, which
is the first word that popped into my head, and to my
surprise is a real word because I had to look it up.
This one started with a huge metal jingle bell and I added other ornaments,
flowers, ribbon, beaded fringe and lots and lots of hand painting.
These kissing balls are wonderful ornaments to hang in an archway, entry, or use
for other holidays as a fun party decoration.
A giant red striped kissing ball with feather boa trim, leopard flowers,
jingle bell trim and lots more.
Another large checked kissing ball with a giant metal jingle bell,
touches of leopard print, beaded fringe, acrylic crystal knob and pretty ribbon.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my hand painted ornaments!
See them all in my Etsy shop.
Oh! One more thing... I'm no longer making the sea life stockings
but I do have 6 of the seahorse stockings left in stock.
All the other styles are sold out. They are reduced to $20, regularly $50.
Until next time...
