Victorian Style Paper Fan
These were fun to make using some vintage style scrapbook paper and than a variety of embellishments used such as feathers, pearl strands, bows and mini cones.
Lace Nosegay Ornament
They look so pretty and detailed and yet are quite simple to make. Stitch along the top of lace and gather into a tight circle, once the lace is arranged embellish as desired. I added some sparkly roses, pearl strands feathers and had some real fun with them. They will look impressive on the top of a gift and then on a tree.
Lavender Ball Ornament
I actually used some of the lavender that I dried from our garden which pleased me. A circle of tulle is filled with lavender tied with a ribbon and little flowers and pearl strands added.
A selection that my husband has cut out and painted. Christmas stamps used and burlap used for bows. Natural twine for hanging them and oddments to embellish. Simple but effective. Names stamped onto some to make them more personal.
Finally some Christmas ribbon tied onto some large bells for the children. Transfers added to them but their are endless ways to enhance a bell just add bits and pieces and see what develops. I have had some great fun with them.
