I did these last year, right after Christmas, for gift tags but could be used for ornaments. Some are made from old christmas cards. The snowman one could be put on lots of old stuff like spools, tin pieces, or dominoes! Buttons, fabric, glitter!!!
Love this, it is from a card that was a photo! That gives me an idea!!
This style lets lots of room for the TO: and FROM:
You might remember the stirrup from my Mom's birthday party that held the napkins, now it holds a special memory for her from her party. A photo of her riding a horse for her 8oth birthday. It is mounted on card stock and had another photo on the other side.
I had this idea for a long time, I'm sure I saw something like it years ago, it took me awhile to find the right thermal jug, like a one we had when I was a kid but i think ours was turquoise top. Well anyway, I think I found it 2 years ago, then I found a lampshade added cork pieces from a coaster around the edge. Then I decided to paint the burlap top, the first time I did not like it so it sat in the basement for another year. I bought new paint last week and repainted the shade. I t would look nice in a screened in porch or maybe someones tree house!! Well for now, It will just sit around looking pretty and maybe sometime will take it to our camper.
What is nice about this jug was the metal top that could be drilled into and the lamp kit fastened to it. And maybe some day it can be just a jug again and something can cover up the hole.
I am participating in some swaps at www.swap-bot.com this summer. A way to create and share my artwork with others. This was a Captured Creature Bottle/Jar Swap and the person I made it for liked to read Urban Romance Fantasy books. I knew absolutely nothing about them, so with a little research of her favorite authors and some image searches I came up with this! Everything was just junk I have collected, that most people throw away. It was hard to photograph with the glass of an old mayo jar, other junk I used was onion netting, craft netting, old book pages and phrases, key, beads jewelry pieces feather and so on!!
Inside the flower an old faceted prism that was a ring, it is hard to see because it matches the flower perfectly.
The lady that recieved it said she loved it! That makes me happy!!
