PRIMITIVE ORNAMENTS "Ornies"


I've been spending a lot of evening making some new little primitive looking ornies.

I simply cut some left over fabric into little squares and got them ready.  I then took some dark thread colors and free handed some stitching on the one side.
Some I stitched a simple candy cane, star or a simple snowman.  On one I just sewed on a button.  And on another, (top right,) I used an ink stamp of an old crow and just stamped it on.  This fabric took the ink great.

Then I stuffed them and hand sewed up the edges and then poked some rusty wire through to make a simple hanger.  I added a few rusty stars to the hangers also to make them more prim looking.

And that was all there was to it.

These look great tucked in a bowl with other similar fillers or hanging on a prim tree!

Salt Dough Button Ornaments | Recipe


This is my first try with making salt dough anything. So I thought I'd try to make some old looking buttons. Then I thought, hum, bet these would look cute on my primitive tree as little ornaments, or "ornies" as we call them around here. They really add a primitive touch, that's for sure.

Here's a few more pics of my go at it:
