I made these recently for the Sweat Shoppe Ornament swap - they are reused non breakable ornaments that I decorated with snow texture mediums, glitter, miniatures, paint, etc.  A general tutorial on how I made them before is posted somewhere on Craftster, and here, on my blog too.



Here are the individual ornaments:

One with a little fawn:


One with a little doe:


The doe and fawn are a bit smaller than the other ones.

I built me a snowfriend:


Do you want to use a snowman:


Nobody like a snow buddy:


Anyways - these were fun to make and I hope others try them too and I am collecting more miniatures to make more, myself.  I included the links to the blog posts if anyone wants more pictures/details.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

These are so adorable and I love the variety you have and the possibilities- from miniatures to photos.

Thanks!

If you have a die cutting machine and shrink plastic, you can make some of your own miniatures too to decorate the inside.  I also am going to try that, and a double cut/opening ornament too to see how that looks.  These take a lot of steps the way I make them (but they are sturdy too with the extra steps) - but seriously therapeutic.

Of course, I must warn - if you use glitter - it will get EVERYWHERE.  FOREVER.

Troy must have swallowed so much glitter just being in the craft room with me, I am surprised his poops aren't sparkling!  Mine too for that matter!
