I decided to create a little trio of ornaments, including a slipper, a Frosty hat, and a Christmas cone.
The ornaments were created with junk mail, vintage book pages, vintage paper garland, and vintage items scavenged from old Christmas wreaths. The little candy canes were old store stock, still in it's packaging, found at the local Goodwill.
I was imagining three siblings, two little boys and a little girl, leaving out a slipper, a hat, and a Christmas cone -- hopeful that Father Christmas might happen by and toss in some treats. I'd say they were good little children, as there is no coal here! Just some shiny things, and some gifts and sweets....
I think there will be some squeals of delight on Christmas morning. Hmmm, maybe there's an iPad in that red package.., oh, wait, that's what I want....
Alas, no tutorials this time. These were created with scissors, glue, a pile of junk mail, and no patterns -- just "free-handed". If you are interested, I can come up with some tutorials for these basic shapes, adapted to other holidays (I won't have time to work them up before Christmas) -- let me know, if you are interested. Please click "follow" in my side bar and let me know if you'd like a tutorial. Also, there are still several more ornament tutorials that I will be posting in December.
