I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

more vintage jello molds re-purposed

I am still working on the box of vintage molds I found at a thrift shop this summer. You may remember from a post a few weeks back how I fashioned some sweet treat pincushions from a few of them.

A few of them were not really suitable for pincushions or candles. I had a about a dozen that were small, I came up with the idea that they would make adorable Christmas tree ornaments when fashioned upside down. Quite easy, I spray painted them ballerina pink, then "sugared" them with glitter. Punched a hole on top and threaded satin ribbons. Viola, shabby vintage cottage ornaments for the tree!


Also,  I had a few Christmas tree shaped molds that I used the same technique, but before I "sugared" I added some waterslide decals.  



And even tho I am a pink roses fan, I think the red roses is my favorite....I just love the rich red, it has such a retro Christmas feel.


I listed most of these for sale on my website, but had to keep a few for myself...stay tuned for a few more re-purposed pretties to come too:)
