Snowmen Light bulb Ornaments



I don't think I've previously written about these adorable snowmen Ornaments.
If I have sorry, but they are just so dang cute they need to be posted again! lol

I have taken both new and vintage Christmas tree glass bulbs and painted them up as snowmen.
Their sizes are approximately:
Height: 3 Inches; Width: 1.5 Inches; Depth: 1 Inches

I have hand painted each Christmas bulbs with various Snowmen faces and expressions and then attached craft wire for easy hanging.



These are best displayed as a set. So I tend to make a lot of them to sale.
A tree full of these would look awesome.



I do hand paint new ones each week, so no two are ever exactly alike. And that is a bonus
to making hand made gifts. Each and every one is unique.



Great to decorate with or to give as gifts separately. 
And adorable as cute tie on gifts to top wrapped gifts with.



If you have any old bulbs on a strand that don't burn anymore give this a try.
You can also buy brand new bulbs, this size in packages of 5 at Walmart and Lowes.






Happy Crafting!

Primitive Rag Balls

I call these simple "rag balls" when they don't have the hook for hanging. Rag balls are a common primitive decoration in the country around here. 

All you need is some plain ole' Styrofoam balls, fabric and hot glue!
Cut up the fabric in manageable strips, depending on the size of your Styrofoam balls, and hot glue'em on. Add on some crafting wire if you want a hanger. And that's it.

You can simply fill any old bowl with them to add a dash of color here or there.

 


Below are some hand-made Christmas tree rag balls I made.




Price: $1.00 each for hanging ragball ornaments (with wire hook) = Sold out
Price: $4.95 for a set of 5 Ragball bowl fillers (without hooks)

Update: New patterns/colors to choose from in Booth #555. Photos coming soon!
