ScarletCalliope Vintage Christmas Ornament Swan 1

This past weekend I went to a very special event hosted by my friend, Kim Caldwell. The event was called Winter Wonderland and was held at the magical Disneyland Hotel. A wonderful part of the creative retreats that I attend is the swaps among the participants. It’s so much fun to create a set of identical ornaments and receive a set back from your friends that are so beautiful and gorgeous, and handmade!

There were several swaps for this event but I only joined the vintage Christmas Ornament Swap. Since I have 2 other ornament swaps PLUS a Secret Santa swap going on, I didn’t want to overload myself!

For this swap I created a Victorian-inspired Christmas Ornament, with a swan as the focal point, complete with vintage glass glitter and tinsel around the edges.

I created a sweet bow, using Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon, and attached it to the vintage-style bottle brush tree and used Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon as the beautiful hanger, as well. The ribbon I used is Buttercream, from the “I Do” Collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
