This year I decided to make bottle and jar ornaments.
The idea sprouted from a box filled with tiny wooden figurines / toys we have. A couple of years ago, I succumbed to my urge and bought 2 boxes with approximately 40 such toys and normally, not all get to be hanged on the tree.
So I decided to use several of these toys and make some new ornaments for our tree.
- bottle and jar caps
- tiny wooden toys
- printables (wanted to use Christmas related ones; instead I used a music sheet, dictionary extract and snowy village scene). Check out my saved printables for more ideas.
For the Santa ornament I wrapped the cap into alu foil, added a dictionary printable. Glued cotton in a semi circle, added some wooden pieces to look like branches and added beads. The santa came at the center. On the outer side I glued a piece from the tree garland and was to add a golden and a red bow on top of it, but successfully managed to lose them around the place. So this is not completely finished.
This is a bottle cap ornament and not quite spectacular, but cute anyway. It was a breeze to make.
I glued sheet music inside, then glued a piece of a garland around the cap (again- not a full circle). I glued an angel at the center as added beads to make it a tiny bit richer. I glued and then tied at the center a golden mash ribbon.
As you can see below, they have already found their place on the tree.
I hope you get inspired to make some yourself!
