Handmade Christmas Ornaments on The Little Blue Trunk

The listing is for denim ornaments, but I can mix and match. Click on the image to see what I mean.

 

I hope this promo brings in something because I have to pay my internet service bill by Nov 30 or I’ll be offline on Dec. 1. If I pull this off I’ll set up a new code for December.

Contact me if you want to make an offer to mix and match or for different quantities.

My shop continues to get more likes and favorites, but my last sale was the first week of November and that’s not enough to pay the bills.

If you’ll take a minute to share this on facebook, pinterest, twitter, etc., I’ll love you forever.

Giving thanks to all of you!

Holiday Hearts and Stars

I know there’s probably a more productive way to spend my time, but with fabric, thread and buttons piled around I’ve been cutting and stitching these little ornaments the last few days.

They’re about three or four inches tall.

The hearts are hand cut to fit the scraps I had so they’re different sizes and shapes.

Because I’m using scraps quantities are limited to what I have on hand.

IMG_0662.JPG

I used a template for the stars. To many points and angles to cut them freehand.

I’ve listed this set of three stars in my Etsy shop.

I have about 25 stitched up so far, so it’s time to stop stitching and get more listed.

If you want a custom order or a big batch of them contact me and we’ll work something out.

Country Christmas Wreaths

Once upon a time I came across a couple of small “store-bought” wreaths. I think they were in a box of craft supplies I got at an estate sale. These machine wrapped wreaths are a dime-a-dozen at craft stores these days.

I decided they’d been sitting around my house long enough, so I pulled out some vintage lace and buttons to dress them up.

These six-inch wreaths are just the right size to decorate some of the small spaces in your house. In the guest bathroom for instance, they would make a nice little frame for a fragile vintage ornament.

In  a kid-friendly space this would be the perfect perch for a little elf to keep an eye on things.

You could hang them on a really large tree as an ornament. On a smaller tree one would make a charming little tree topper.

I’ll include pictures and show you what I mean if they end up in my Etsy shop.

Anybody interested?

Christmas is Coming

 I’ve been making little handcrafted Christmas ornaments the last few days.

They’re great gifts for co-workers, classmates, and teachers. I’ll add a hang tag so they can be used as a gift tag.

Hang on one the neck of a bottle of wine for a hostess gift.

Fill a basket with them and gift to newlyweds for their first Christmas.

And if you have curious toddlers and pets, they are ideal for the bottom of the tree.

Burlap Stars, Jan Made it

These are all made by hand, by me, out of scraps I have around the house.

IMG_0578.JPG

They are about 4 inches tall.

I have more little hearts made of denim, ticking, and other shabby style fabrics.

I’m taking pictures and writing descriptions today to list them on Etsy.

I can use any color of thread, add beads or bangles, and customize a set to match your decor.

Let me know what you have in mind and I can make something just for you.
