I’m starting a new series! It’s been awhile, yes, what with the epic that was Series 1. The flower-making never seemed to end. Don’t get me wrong now, I love flowers. When I look back in the archives, I have to say I’m quite satisfied with all the different flowers that came out of that series. In fact, I see a few floral tutorials in my future detailing some of those creations. But the series was long… Just an observation.
And, I’m just fond of EVERY aspect of Series 2. Denim is such a great crafting material with so much texture and richness. So I figured it was time to get back up on the series horsie! That said, I begin:
Series 3: SITUATION CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT-ATION: Installment #1!
(Out of how many installments is still to be decided…)
The tutorial for Installment #1 is such that only a teensy amount of brain juice is required, so I’ve chosen to go wordless. Shhh, it’s starting…
Tutorial: Plastic Bottle Bottom Ornaments
I'm speechless – how you see such beauty in a plastic bottle!!! Ciao
Fun, fun, fun. I have loads of plastic container projects in my mind – I so need to get them out.
So pretty! I can just picture a Christmas tree with about 20 of these hanging on it 🙂
Ah!! These are adorable. Love them!!!

These are very nice aren't they? What kind of paint did you use- acrylic ? I quite fancy doing this with my art class kiddies. I will have a practice first…
Gorgeous, gorgeous….my bottles are piling up a little while longer while I prep to make a wreath of my own. Now the tree can coordinate ooo-la-la!

What kind of are you using? Spray or brush paint. Would it streak? I love to mack Christmas ornaments.I used to make sheep out of matiral thet looked like sheeps wool. And plaid ribben. And wobble eyes and little gingle bells aroound there neckes and I used little sticks from outside as there legs. I gave them all away so now I have nothing to go on! Do you ever make these. They looked. So sweet on the tree! Anyone out there make these? Sure wood like to do them again. Been years since I made them.also I used a sowing machine and mine has been gone for years.need to get a new one. Have to shop around. Crafts is my life. Thanks for the great ideas!
