This is my favorite time of year! The smells, the chill in the air, sweets, friends, family, and love are the things that bring a smile to my face and warm my heart. Christmas time is the time for makers. Makers of gifts, cards, food all come out in full force to spread the cheer and happiness of the holiday season and RELICS & ARTIFACTS® is no exception.
I've started making holiday decorations within the last couple of years and to say that it's gratifying puts it mildly. From banners to wreaths and most recently, ornaments, nothing is out of bounds for these creative hands. This year, my focus was on ornaments, chandelier ornaments to be more specific. My inspiration came from classic Christmas songs.
Inspired by "Baby It's Cold Outside" and "White Christmas" (Bing Crosby's rendition, of course), the nontraditional blue, white, and silver are my homage to wintery wonderlands and the sparkle of fresh, clean snow.
In a more traditional motif, "Oh Christmas Tree" was the inspiration for this ornament. The green, gold, floral, and trim make my little tree ornament glisten and shine.
As a little present to you, I've even done a Snapguide tutorial on how to construct your own Christmas ornaments.
