{Handmade Christmas Ornament No. 16}

Hi Friends! I’m Susan from Homeroad

I’m so excited to be sharing a project on one of my favorite blogs! Stephanie Lynn is fabulous and I love her blog!

I want to share with you one of my many Christmas projects this year made from recycled materials. Many of my projects at Homeroad are created from side-of-the-road cast offs or from thrift store finds.

My Christmas ornaments are no different, they are easy to make and very “thrifty”

I had so much fun making tin punch ornaments from a previous post…

That I decided to have a little more fun with metal and crystals

This time I used a vintage jello mold…
I used a tiny hole punch to pop holes all the way around the jello mold…
I separated the crystals that were salvaged from an Ikea lamp I found, you may have guessed…. on the side of the road! Notice the jump rings… they made it easy to slide the crystals into the holes!
I attached a larger crystal to the inside center for the “dinger” isn’t that what it’s called?
And I love it on the tree!
Very shabby-vintage!
Happy Holidays!

  1. Good grief! This is seriously beautiful.

    Thanks so much for this series. It is a great introduction to some new blogs and really inspiring.

    I even stopped all the madness last night and made ornaments with my kiddo because of it.

  2. I just bought some of these jello molds at the Goodwill and didn’t know what to do with them. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Thanks so much for having me visit today Stephanie Lynn!
    Happy Holidays!

  4. Susan did a fantastic job with the jello mold ornie. Now I know what to do with all the leftover ones that I don’t want to paint.

  5. Clever and so cute..
