Mini Tart Tin Ornaments
Thanksgiving is upon us and Christmas, well, you know, it's been in the stores since August!
I've been trying to decide what to do with a collection of mini tart tins found over the summer at an estate sale. At first, I thought I'd make a wreath and even though I had a bag full of them, it would be a small wreath. Plan B? Make some ornaments!
I started by punching a hole in the top using my Crop a Dile Big Bite.
To decorate, I pulled out my box of vintage jewelry and started sifting through it. There was a bracelet in pieces that I saved - knowing I'd find something to do with them.
Today was that day! I picked the piece that was the best fit and dipped the edges in some E6000.
I placed it in the tin and left it to dry.
Some silver ribbon was looped through the hole and the ornament was done.
Next came the poinsettia pin. I removed the block of wood from a mini bottle brush tree and glued it in the center of the tin.
I needed a little more surface area for the pin to stick. After adding a dab of glue to the top of the wood block, I added the pin.
After allowing for dry time, I used a red satin ribbon for hanging and the second ornament was complete!
The big question is, will I make more ornaments or will I save the tins I have while I search for more to make a wreath?
The jury is still out...
This was a quick and easy project for the holidays. In addition to using old jewelry, small bottle brush trees, wreaths, and miniature Christmas figurines could also be used to make pretty ornaments for the tree.🎄
Speaking of trees. Is yours up yet? Mine is not...I'm an after-Thanksgiving hold-out, but my ornaments are ready!
