Beads, Blog Hops and Challenges

Art Elements Christmas Ornament Blog Hop

Oh, I very nearly didn’t make it to this hop today, I always seem to bite off a lot more than I can chew at this crazy time of the year! But having missed the ArtBeadScene Ornament hop, I knew I had to do something for this one, organised by Art Elements.

Anyway, grand plans out of the window, I decided to go simple. I have these fabulous mini embroidery hoops that can be used in a few different ways, and I thought they’d make fine little decorations for the tree. These ones are the “big” ones, at 55mm/2.2 inches diameter. I pulled out my stash of Christmas fabric, my scissors and my hot glue gun and put them to work. One of these days I plan to teach myself how to do paper piecing to make tiny patchwork pictures, but in the meantime I think these are really quite sweet.

Here they are on my handmade ornaments Christmas tree. My big tree has so much on it, the special ones get a bit lost, so I have a little tree just for my handmade ornaments! Some made by me, some by others.

Anyway, this is a blog hop, so go and have a looky-loo at what others have made! And whether you celebrate Christmas, or not, have a lovely holiday and see you in 2018 (eek!).

  1. Love these!! I keep saying I’m going to get some of those little hoops one day…one day. I adore what you did with them though. Your Christmas fabric is adorable. And, that tree!! So jealous of all the goodies displayed there. I am glad you shared a peek at it with us. Merry Christmas!!

  2. Those are totally cool ornaments and I love the special tree for hand mades…such a good idea. Thank you for taking part in our challenge and happy holidays.

  3. Somehow your special tree looks even more perfect as I remember its mid summer for you! The ornaments are great! What a fun way to showcase adorable fabric. And they would even be great gift decorations!

  4. Very cute ornaments and I love the idea of a special tree for handmade ornaments which are always the best anyway.

  5. Wow! These are so cute. I have been meaning to get some of those hoops. Now I have a great reason ๐Ÿ™‚ And your tree is gorgeous. I am thinking of doing something similar with some ocean ornaments I am working on. Your snowman rocks btw. Have a great holiday!!
