Christmas Ornaments

I thought I would share some of the Christmas ornaments that decorate my tree.

An old wooden drum that I have had since Nikki was a little girl. I have several wooden ornaments in this style.
An iced leaf with berries that I made this year.
A glass snowflake.

A white, glittered bird which is much prettier in real life than in this picture.
A wooden bird.
A couple of glass snowflakes.
The wooden drum in the background.
An iced leaf.

A capiz shell angel and a clip on candle replica.

These are two ornaments that I made several years ago. An angel that I made from ribbon, and a dove I made from felt and decorated with white sequins and bugle beads.

A rugged cross I made from cinnamon sticks.




Another candlestick replica, a glass cross, and one of the iced leaves & berries that I made this year.




An angel made from a paper doily. I think this was probably my sample for a Sunday School Christmas craft for the kiddos.




A rugged cross and a capiz shell star.




A glass butterfly, a glass snowflake, and a gold bulb that I decorated with iced leaves.




Another gold bulb decorated with iced leaves and a glass cross.




An angel that was my sample for a Sunday School Craft project for the kiddos.
Some bells decorated with some ribbon and berries.
An old wooden toy chest. The toy chest doesn't hang straight but the others do.
An iced leaf with the light from the bulbs illuminating the beads.

A glass humming bird, and another iced leaf gold bulb.




A wreath ornament I made years ago with ribbon and beads.




This years ornaments before I put them on the tree.

I've never seen the iced leaves before; they're quite beautiful. I have the same capiz angel as you, but I never heard that word before. Now I have to look up the definition of "capiz!"

Edie,
You are very talented!

I love the rugged cross and the iced leaves.

Good Morning Edie!

I want the rugged cross. It's beautiful and would go very well with my collection of crosses. Just kidding! I do love all of your ornaments though. Very nice!

As I looked at the pictures I could see you in them. Isn't it funny how what we put on our tree tells about us.
I see in you, a artest heart who loves Jesus!

I really love the cross at the top because that is what it is really all about isn't it!

Your ornaments are beautiful, I love the personal touch, how they speak of who you are. Our tree is full of collections for my kids when they have their own trees.
Merry Christmas.

You're very talented. I went through a phase were I made Christmas ornament. THANK GOODNESS I GOT OUT OF IT!! Mine looked nothing like yours! They looked like they were made by a 3 year old. It was about 10 years ago.
One of them showed up at an ornament exchange I went to last year!!

I'm so glad you got a picture of the iced leaves before you put them on the tree - the "On the tree" pictures don't do them justice. They're beautiful.

I feel like I was "there" with you watching - thanks!

Sharon said...

They're all beautiful, I liked the cinnamon stick cross, thanks for sharing these :)

Love
Sharon

Susan said...

Oh wow, these are just beautiful!

Loved the leaves, how neat.

Hope you are having a blessed day today Edie♥

Love what those new leaves do to that gold ball! Are they all glued on there?

I actually don't make ornaments for the home tree, usually. I like to make ornaments for gifts. Perhaps some icy bells for my choir next year. (They're getting solder-wrapped spoons this year, as we often talk about playing our parts with spoons when we don't have the bells.)

Would love to see your whole tree in a picture sometime! I like the ribbon, too!

The leaves with berries i will remember it as an idea for next year to make with the kids
Enjoy your tree and your family
Merry X-mas

Thanks for sharing these Edie. Love the ice and the birds. My friend gave me a highly feathered one eyed bird ornament for my tree this year. I love it. The handmade touch is always the best. If only I had a spot of tea while viewing you tree!!!

Debra said...

Edie,

I love the angels...I have them all over my tree too. Just beautiful! And the cross...awesome, my friend.

Hugs to you!
