  1. It looks like you have some fabulous ornament tutorials. I love the orange slice one!

  2. Mary says:

    I love it! Can’t get my head around Christmas just yet, but definitely planning on making home made ornaments again this year. I think they are wonderful keepsakes. (Granted a lot of the ones I made as a child *might* have ended up towards the back of my parents tree as years went by….sigh) Pinning!

  3. Isil says:

    Thanks for the list.I love the walnut babies.

  4. Oh I love the pine cone angels :) We have some little silver pine cones that could do with sprucing up :)

  5. Red Ted Art says:

    Bethany – the orange slices are one my favourite as they are so simple and yet so pretty!

    Mary – I know I know.. Christmas is a while a way but it is nice to plan, right? Thank you for pinning!

    Isil – yes the walnut babes are another favourite. Remind me of my childhood!

    Susanne – aaweee thanks. Have more pinecone fairies coming this week!!!

  6. Sian says:
