Fleur-de-lis Ornaments

Here's another variation on my salvaged metal ornaments.

I'm making fleur-de-lis ornaments.

They're painted a soft white, with a bit of vintage script transferred to the surface, and, a metal fleur-de-lis adhered to the center.

I followed with a dusting of glitter.

I punched a hole for a cord, and, seam binding.

I'm making a bunch for my show next month, and, listing a few on Etsy.

More Glittery Metal

I'm having lots of fun making these glitter dusted metal ornaments, and, hangers.

I can't tell you how many pieces of salvaged metal I have.  I mean, I "really" can't tell you.

Occasionally, I sell some of my miscellaneous pieces.  However, more often than not, I stare at them until inspiration strikes.

After seeing one of my glittery metal ribbons, one of my FB friends, wanted to know if I could turn them into wreath, or, stocking holders.


I decided to use just one ribbon for the hooks.

Okay, I have more metal to cut, assemble, paint, and, glitter up.  I'm getting requests, I have to list some in my Etsy, and, I have to have some available at my shows next month.

I'd better get back to work.

See ya soon.
