My 2014 Shabby Chic Handmade Christmas Ornaments

Hello crafters!

Today is a project share that I did last year for Christmas. I know it’s a little late but I really had no time to post it until now…..please forgive my tardiness, but at least you can make similar ornaments for this year. Shabby Chic design doesn’t go away…I don’t think it ever will either! LOL

I LOVED how they turned out!!

I LOVED them on my tree!!

You know, because of personal stuff my family and I have gone through over the last several years, we’ve rented homes for way too long and I hadn’t decorated for my favorite holiday seasons….made me sad but this is the 1st time I’ve put up a tree in about 5-6 years and I was just so happy about it…which is why I made these to begin with! I’m happy to say that we are house hunting now and hope to have our own home within the next 4 months…..then, I can get back to decorating my house and doing whatever I WANT! LOL! 🙂 

I made some trees out of some tomato cages, (yes, TOMATO CAGES!) last year for my friends antique shop and so this year, I got to use them on my porch which I loved! It wasn’t too much, but just enough to make me smile:)

They were wrapped with pine and grapevine garlands then some strings of white lights!! I also left the muslin bows at the tops of the trees from last year, they still look great! I’m posting the video tutorial here below just in case you would like to make some for your own decor, I hope you’ll enjoy it.

I have these just hanging out by my porch!

Of course they can be filled in a bit but at the time I was in LOVE with them. I’ll be pulling these out every year and customizing them to fit my theme and colors for that year too!

Thanks for stopping by to see my project!

Have a great 2015 you guys!
