Hello ! Well, I did end up finishing all 12 ornaments.

 November: Um. Hair.
I was a little lazy with this one as I almost ran out of time
to do it before giving them as a gift to a friend.




And December : Wild Card, but show us your tree with the ornaments!
- My wildcard make is Sack Boy from LBP with a christmas costume on Smiley
He was one of my favorite ornaments out of them all







 Here are all of my ornaments together :



 I gave them all to a friend for christmas. So I didnt get to take a photo of them on my tree.
 I wrapped up each gift individually and put a label with the month and the theme attached.
My friend got to open one gift a day over a 12 day period in December and she hung them on her tree Smiley




 Im going to do it again this year - and my friend wants to do it aswell,
 we will swap our ornaments at the end of the year
Except..I need new themes for each month...

?? Smiley

I just love your ornaments!!  I was so ridiculously busy last year that I didn't get to make any.
This year i'll have to make double the ornaments - for last years themes AND this years!

Since I don't have a resolution this year that can be mine. To actually make ornaments this year!  Cheesy

I'm drawing a blank on ideas for themes though...

Ankhored - do you have more detailed pictures of making your ornaments? I'm so in love with them. Esp nekkid Santa and Sackboy.

like the idea. sadly, i don't have a use for weird ornaments.

+ so far, i've seen hilarious easter bunny christmas ornaments. eggs and everything.
+ and what about a "recycling" topic? like, i don't know, maybe keys from old keyboards  on a string.
+ organs? knitted kidneys and tiny hearts ...

we could use these ideas, and some one suggested roadkill, and there was also a suggestion of spooky cats...

how about "food with faces"?

what else?

Ghilie - did you want to change the title of the thread? I don't think we need a new thread. That way people can continue to look at last years themes and ornaments.

I like food with faces Smiley I'm thinking "French toast" - with beret and mo'.

I can't think of anything particularly good, but here's what i've got:
- celebrity baby names
- Ye Olde Times
- Miniatures
- with a hat
- dead poets
- pixelated
- something Youtube related...

I'm no good at this! Tongue

 hey beckashell, no I didnt take any photos of the progress.. Sad I never think to.
 But all I did for both the Santa and Sack boy was get super sculpey and then sculpt, cook, paint Smiley

 Those themes are great !

 so far Im liking  :

 -Scavenger 'make it from what you find
- CarnEvil (carnival with a spooky twist)
- Roadkill
- food with faces
- ye olde times (medievil or however you want to perceive it)
- pixelated
- inspired by a celebrity baby name : LOL,  I like it - there are so many strange names to work from Smiley


And some other options :
 
 -Under The Sea
 -Alice in Wonderland
 -Magic and Fantasy
  > or we narrow down the above theme to a less broader range i.e. Fairies and Goblins ?
 -Childhood Heros
- Tim Burton
- Wings

 
...Ill stop now or it will be hard to narrow it down to 12 Smiley

Oh yes, I especially like scavenger and childhood heroes!!
And Alice in Wonderland - i've never crafted anything Alice before, but always wanted to! The only thing is that's it's not exactly a "unique" theme... hmmm.

I'm so excited. I'm not going to let myself join anymore swaps until i've crafted ornaments for this. Unfortunately i'm going away for almost 2 months in just 2 weeks so will be a little behind Smiley
