Vintage Doily Christmas Ornaments




You may call me a Grinch, but there are days I get fed up with all the Holiday hullabaloo.

At this time of year, it feels like the whole world has gone a little insane with the "gimmes". Stores are lit up with new shiny products, packages of toys, decorations, food, and even more ornaments than someone could ever count.

Don't get me wrong, I love the festive spirit of the season. However, there are days I cringe at all the commercialism and waste. I relish the personal and special connection family's have with Christmas- not all the bobbles and gadgets exclusive to each shopping season!

This year I decided to make a few new ornaments for our personal tree and to give as gifts. It is a tradition in our family to add a new ornament each year so this year I wanted to make something special. I wanted to take vintage and discarded elements to create something new with some jewelry making supplies I received from House of Gems.

It was easy to order from House of Gems with fast delivery and wonderful customer support. I was amazed at the assortment of wholesale beads and jewelry making supplies available on their site. As bead crafts tumbled through my head, I was able to order ALL the supplies I needed in one location. I definitely enjoyed my package and would recommend purchasing beading supplies from House of Gems.


I created these homespun ornaments with a few snips of the scissors and a couple of drops of glue. They turned out beautiful and this method allows for several creative embellishments while having a universal theme on your tree. The doilies tie everything together and make the tree cohesive.

To make your own vintage doily Christmas ornaments you will need:


  • 1 unit of 5 mm Freshwater pearls
  • small doilies- I found several handmade ones that were priced fairly cheap at a local consignment store or you can raid Grandma's yellowing stash
  • vintage or solid color ornaments- I used ones from a garage sale
  • hot glue sticks
  • hot glue gun
  • soft touch beading wire
  • embellishments: ribbon, wholesale beads, holly, garland, etc.
  • scissors
  • ornament hooks
Follow these steps to craft your ornament made with jewelry making supplies:
  • Measure your doily and trim the middle for a better fit. I placed it on top of the ornament and decided to cut it in half for the desired fit.
 
 

  • Carefully, attach the pearls to the doily with the soft touch beading wire. I chose this, because I was afraid to hot glue pearls. Do what you feel is the best!

  • Remove the top of the ornament and glue the doily around your ornament.

  • Replace the top and add embellishments.

  • Hang and enjoy!




Happy Holidays from us here at Plain Graces!
