01 DSC 0507 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper OrnamentsHey everyone! Today I am going to share one more ornament tutorial with you all! I am going to show you how to make a super easy and quick treat for your tree using some of those little mini frames you can get in the dollar section at Michaels. You only need a few items and you can make several in under an hour, making it a perfect weeknight craft or craft party candidate! I had a blast making these the other day! I love them so much, I may have to make some more. 

Here’s What You Need:

*Mini Frames (michaels)

*Vintage wrapping paper scraps (small prints work best)

*Old books, magazines, etc for words

*Scissors

*Pen or pencil

*Rubber cement

*Tweezers

*Cupcake picks, vintage minis, floral picks like holly, etc…

*Ribbon

*Hot Glue and glue gun

Instructions:

09 DSC 0477 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper Ornaments

First gather up all your supplies and decide what papers and words you want to use.

10 DSC 0478 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper Ornaments

Take the paper insert out of the frame and use it as a template for your wrapping paper. Trace the shape and then cut out your wrap.

11 DSC 0479 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper Ornaments

Then, cut out words you want to use from your ephemera.

12 DSC 0481 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper Ornaments

Glue your wrapping paper to the white side of the frame insert with rubber cement. Put a little rubber cement on the back of your words and place them where you want them on the wrapping piece with your tweezers. Smooth down and rub off any excess glue.

13 DSC 0483 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper Ornaments

Decide what minis or embellishments you want to add to the outside of your frame.

14 DSC 0484 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper Ornaments

Cut a length of ribbon to about 4-5″ long. Glue the bottoms of the ribbon together to form a loop. Then glue the bottom of your loop onto the top back side of your frame. Hang on your tree and enjoy!

02 DSC 0503 DIY Mini Framed Vintage Christmas Paper OrnamentsAren’t they so dang cute! You guys know me, if I can make something with vintage stuff I ALWAYS have to! My wrapping paper and paper ephemera was all vintage as well as my little plastic deer. You can make these easily with your own paper scraps or with some fun new wrapping paper (Target has some super cute wrap this year!) Have fun with it and make it your own! I hope you guys will give this one a try for your next mid-week make, or party! They are so easy and fast to whip up, and they make really cute and inexpensive last-minute hostess gifts for those holiday parties! I’ll be back tomorrow with another Christmas diy. Until then…

Happy Crafting!

DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama Ornaments

1 DSC 0355 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsHi guys! Happy Friday! I know for a lot of people it is sacrilege to decorate for Christmas before it’s even Thanksgiving. However, that is exactly what I am doing this weekend! It makes me happy, don’t judge me icon wink DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama Ornaments One of my favorite things about the holidays and holiday crafting in particular is that my mom and I always make ornaments together. This year I wanted to make some ornaments that were similar to vintage jewel brite’s or vintage diorama ornaments. These do require the use of a dremmel, but other than cutting, they are pretty easy to make! We made a bunch of them in just an afternoon.

Here’s What You Need:

*Plastic Ornaments

*Dremmel Tool fitted with a cutting disk

*Paint

*Mod podge or medium to attach glitter

*Glitter (I used Diamond Dust)

*Cotton Balls

*Toothpick

*Vintage and new miniatures

*Little bottle brush trees

*Hot Glue and Glue Gun

*Pipe Cleaner

*Wire Snippers

*Ribbon or Twine for hanging

Instructions:

04 DSC 0091 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsTo start with, draw a line to use as a cutting guide on the front of your ornament. Draw the circle to be about 1/2 to 3/4″ away from the seam in the center of the ornament.

03 DSC 0093 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama Ornaments

02 DSC 0096 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama Ornaments

01 DSC 0099 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsCarefully cut your ornament with the dremmel. Insert the cutting wheel into the cutting line and then carefully follow it around until you reach the other side. Remove the cut front. You will be actually melting the plastic when you cut, so it may stick to itself after you cut, but you will find that you can easily twist it off.

11 DSC 0053 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsPaint the inside of the ornament with your choice of paint. It may take a few coats. Set aside to dry thoroughly.

10 DSC 0055 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama Ornaments

09 DSC 0056 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsPaint a layer of decoupage medium on the inside of the ornament, leaving the bottom of the inside clean. Pour a little glitter into the ornament, then swish it around to coat and tap out the excess.

08 DSC 0060 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsNow you need to glue in your minis. Glue them down to the bottom inside of the ornament with hot glue.

07 DSC 0061 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama Ornaments

06 DSC 0062 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsTo add the snow, you will need cotton balls. Pull the cotton ball apart. Add a little glue to the bottom of the ornament around the minis you glued down. Lay a little cotton onto the glue. Use your toothpick to smoosh the cotton down and around the minis.

05 DSC 0064 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsTo finish the cut edge, cut a pipe cleaner to size to fit the opening. Glue the pipe cleaner around the cut edge of the ornament. Snip down the wires in the top of the ornaments if you need to. Put the tops back on. Pliers will definitely help get the wires into the holes in the top. To finish, tie a ribbon or some twine to the loop in the top of the ornament. Now you are ready to hang.

5 DSC 0334 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama Ornaments

2 DSC 0352 DIY Vintage Inspired Diorama OrnamentsI am so in love with these little ornaments! I had a total blast making them, and I love the vintage charm they add to a tree! I will be selling a few of these in my shop if any of you would like to have one of these fun ornaments on your tree, but don’t want to make them yourself. I hope some of you all will make some of these this Christmas with your favorite crafty partner in crime. You’ll totally love them! I’ll be back next week with more fun holiday crafting! Until then…

Happy Crafting!

Fall Style Inspired by Julep Nail Polish

Untitled 1 963x1024 Fall Style Inspired by Julep Nail Polish

Today was the first little taste of fall weather around here. And although I am a little sad to see summer go, I am very much looking forward to cooler weather and snuggling up with lovely sweaters! Today I am teaming up with Julep Nail Polish to give you some style ideas for transitioning from summer to fall colors. I am not usually a fan of autumn’s earthy tones, but the softer colors still speak to me. I chose to create a look inspired by Julep’s beautiful polish color, Clara. This is such a luscious shade of pink. It has a little peachy undertone, and is soft, feminine, and modern! I love this shade of pink for fall as it tones down the brights of summer but still gives you a hint of color with your fall neutrals. My style tends to be pretty casual. I also have a serious obsession with sweaters in the fall! So, this ensemble is definitely on my fall wish list! I like pieces that are a little fun and quirky as well, and it’s no surprise the adorable deer sweater and amazing rose sneakers are right up my alley! Love love love them! I think that Julep’s Clara pink polish would be the perfect accompaniment to this fall outfit, don’t you! To see more amazing colors for your perfect fall manicure, check out the fabulous line of Julep Nail Polish. And here is a break down of my style inspiration and where to buy everything pictured in this post:

It was a beautiful weekend here! As some of you all know by now, I love all kinds of prints, and mash-ups of prints together. However, I am and always have been a polka dot kind of girl!

Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- December 16th

Happy Monday everybody! I love vintage Christmas items! Since Christmas is my favorite time of year, I always decorate early. I collect Christmas items throughout the year, and usually can’t wait to display them in my home. My favorite Christmas items are all mid century! They are kitschy, cute, and always fun. I thought this week I’d share some awesome vintage mid century holiday finds with you from Etsy’s wonderful vintage shops! Here are some of my absolute favorites:
