I'm quite sure that we don't need any more little Christmassy do-dads hangin' around the house, but when did I ever let that stop me? The projet du jour: "dingly danglies" from Suzie at black eyed angel:
Originally on design*sponge lo, these many years ago, said little cuties were made even cooler and more fun by Suzie. I love that she used text in them, and I love her colors. So, I decided to try to make some with vintage children's illustrations to make them uber colorful, as I am wont to do.
And text. Love the text.
Here's what I came up with:
I used an old, worn-out, ex-library copy of this book, vintage Christmas music paper, and various scrapbooking pages.
To make all 6, it took about 45 minutes, and it was super fun. I think the girls and I will make some for their rooms this evening. (I always love to see what papers they pick out--it is surprising to me every single time. You think you know a kid, just because you gave them life.)
Since they come out sort of large for a tree ornament (about 8 x 6"), I made a garland thingy. They would be super cute hanging from a mantel at different lengths, or from the top of a window. I had nowhere really suitable, so for now, ours is here, on our only blank wall...
Adds a bit of Christmas to the upstairs, which is often sadly neglected, holiday-wise.
Anywhoo, super fun and quick and easy. My kinda craft. Thanks Suzie, for leading the way!
Next up on my list, and a bit more ambitious, these little cuties from Clare at Loobylu. (Knitting! You might never see these.)
What are you making? Do tell!
Catch you later, sweet friends.
