Christmas DIY Project

During the Summer I found a bag of
Darling Metal Molds from Sweden


They've been hanging around the Studio..
Just waiting to be altered

Last night I decided to get started
First off make a little paper pattern


Then cut the paper for the backing
you can also use some Vintage holiday wrapping paper 
add a few dabs of glue...


Measure out the right length of
Vintage Garland and glued it in place~


I then found a miniature Bottle Brush Tree
and secured it in the mold

You can use any sweet Holiday Miniature
that you might have around~


I drilled a small hole in the top of each mold
so now I need to add the hanger
and embellish each ornament a bit more


When I get these completed I'll show you
just how darling they display on a Tree..
They are fairly simple and you can get as creative 
as you want! Using all the goodies you already have.

Get that Glue Gun Going!

What a lucky find! and you did the perfect thing with them. I'm sure they will look lovely on your tree. I have found a few of the bigger molds, but these look smaller than mine. I still will try out this idea. Thanks!

These are very creative and sparkly. I like the tiny trees and the cardinal and they will look great on a tree.

Such a clever idea! I have a bunch of those, not quite as shiny as yours since I baked little tart shell in them once upon a time.

This is a cute idea - I just love the one with the little red cardinal in it! They are sure to look quite sparkly on a tree.

As a Scandinavian from Minnesota I'll tell you that those Sandbakkels tins were never happier than now that they have a new life as a Christmas miniature frame!

These are so cute! I bet they will look great on the tree with the lights reflecting off of them.

I'll be on the lookout for these molds, and tiny little treasures to put in them. Can't wait to see yours hanging on a tree. I bet they will look spectacular!

Super cute idea, Diane. I had the same idea about remaking some thrift shop Christmas decorations but not many out yet. So I have been Christmas crafting from scratch!

Oh my goodness, I had a whole bag of these in my shopping cart at a thrift store one time. But I couldn't think of a use for them, so I put them back! Darn! These are adorable!!
