Hello, everybody! Merry Almost-Christmas, if you’re celebrating this year!
So, you may have noticed by now that I really enjoy the Art Elements blog, since I have participated in so many blog hops and challenges that they’ve hosted (1, 2, 3, 4). For this one, they have challenged us to make some handmade Christmas ornaments! You can read the original challenge description here.
So here’s what I made!
These little stylized Christmas wreaths are made from my Vistella earring pattern, but tweaked a little bit to leave off the AVA beads.
I did three different Christmassy color combinations and then strung them up on bits of sari silk to hang from the tree.
Here we’ve got a vintage-looking bright red, dark olive, and antique beige.
Then a modern twist with teal, snowy white, gold and wine red.
And your classic holly berry red, soft gold, and warm green palette.
They were really fun to whip up and I had a good time making different versions of the classic Christmas color combo. I tend to get really wrapped up in tweaking the classic green/red/gold/white to get different moods. Remember my big color palette frenzy last year?
Check out what everybody else made for the handmade ornament challenge this year. There’s lots of amazing stuff. Happy Holidays! See you soon with my New Years Resolutions for 2018!
