Did I mention that I may have joined a couple Christmas Ornament Swaps this holiday season?  I joined 3 different swaps this year, plus a Secret Santa swap.  And what a fabulous collection of ornaments I have decorating my pink Christmas tree now!

ScarletCalliope Pink Christmas Tree

Here’s my tree with some of the swap ornaments.

ScarletCalliope Ballet Slipper Tree Topper

I created the tree topper from a pair of pink pointe shoes and some sparkly trims and bows that adorned the ornaments.

Trim the Tree

Now for the best part!  These ornaments are from the Trim the Tree ornament swap hosted by my fabulous friend, Julie Weller.  The guidelines for the swap were simple:

“Make a vintage-inspired, Christmas ornament for EACH swap participant (15 ornaments TOTAL).  Easy peasy!! Think vintage! Think glitter! Think glitz! Think winter! Think MERRY! Send something that you’d be proud to display on your tree!”

I created a carolers hat ornament, with snow dusted across the top and sides, silver berries, some Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon, a vintage angel in the moon and some pretty silver sparkly details.

Take a look at these beautiful and creative ornaments!

Thanks for stopping by!
