Contestant #13: Heartwarming Christmas Ornaments

By: Elizabeth




These heartwarming Christmas ornaments were made using buttons from out website! A little message from the creator to go along with her creations...
While growing up, as one of seven children, money was often tight.   So my dad began making Christmas ornaments as a way to save some money on gifts.  Using a scroll saw, thin wood, paint, and jewels, he made us ornaments.  It is now a huge part of our Christmas celebration.  We don't care about the presents.  We all want to see our ornaments!  Today, we are older and have families of our own.  Our significant others and our children now receive ornaments, as well as important family friends.  The list of ornament recipients has grown to well over 100 people  - and almost everybody receives more than 1.  A few years ago, I began helping my father with the ornaments.  Making 200, sometimes 300+, ornaments has become too much work for him on his own.  He designed them, and I would help paint them.   Every weekend, from March until December, is ornament time.  It is very time consuming and exhausting.   My dad eventually got tired of doing them, so I have taken over completely.  However, I cannot draw!  So the ornaments have changed a lot, but at least the tradition continues!  I use photographs, clip art, scrapbook paper, and tons of embellishments.  Stickers are often cheaper, but buttons and flatbacks add a lot more fun to the ornaments.  I am always on the lookout for anything that can jazz up an ornament!  I hope to continue making ornaments for my loved ones for as long as I can.  And I have already warned my daughter that she will eventually take over!
