Charity Wings Ornament SWAP

I participated in an ornament swap at Charity Wings

 'Tis the season - I joined a handmade holiday ornament swap! We each had to make two ornaments - one to swap and one to donate to the Charity Wings auction tree.

For the swap I had a great time creating these vintage looking ornaments!

All metal charms and pressed metal from Echo ArtWorks!
This is my ornament, the tin is approximately 2.5 inches in diameter. 

The tin was first painted with Vintaj Patinas. The rim coated with glue to adhere vintage glass silver glitter.  Add a bit of Stickles for bling in the creases of the tin.  One hole was punched in the top and three on the bottom of the tin.

Tule adds a softness to the inside of the tin.  A stamped metal heart with a mermaid & seahorse was glued to the bottom of the tin. A stamped metal heart frame was hung from the hole in the top of the tin.  Attached to a headpin with beads on the outside of the time. Colorful ribbons tied around the headpin. 

Three headpins with beads and charms (sea shell and seahorses) hang from the lower three holes.
The heart in the bottom of the tin and the one dangling from the hole creates a 3-D effect.  The beads and ribbons from Echo ArtWorks.

Have fun creating your ornaments this Christmas!
