Handmade Star Christmas Ornaments

Yesterday I shared my handmade vintage snowflake ornament I made to sell a local boutique and also at an Antique store's open house. I also handmade these vintage inspired wooden star ornaments. They were so fun to make! I love making ornaments! 

I painted these wooden stars cream and distressed them.

Then I embellished them with vintage book page pinwheels {tutorial here}, German Glass Glitter {one of the prettiest things on earth!}, and red glitter snowflakes.  

I tied them up with red and white baker's twine.

I love making things for Christmas! 

~I made a couple extra that I will have available in the Shoppe~

I am sharing a post that is near and dear to my heart today over at Kristin's blog on an experience that made me truly grateful. 

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

You do beautiful work!

I love "trying" to make Christmas ornaments also. I may be the only one who likes them, but that's okay because it sure is fun!

Blessings, Amy
