These ornaments were inspired by Natalie Hansen who made the CUTEST Halloween spoon ornaments in the 2008 issue of Somerset Holidays and Celebrations. I thought I'd put a Christmas spin on her Halloween ornaments. I used mica, glitter chipboard angel wings, resin wings and tinsel from Melissa Frances. Not only do they make pretty ornaments for your tree, you could also tie one on top of a package to dress it up or make several and give them as gifts.

Here's an idea if you'd like to dress up an ordinary gift box for gift giving this season.
These little boxes were made using paper mache houses and boxes bought at Michaels. I painted the houses and applied a mixture of Snow Tex, paint and glitter to the roofs. Paper from Melissa Frances covers the boxes. I then sprinkled pink and white mica on top of the boxes and embellished them with glitter snowflakes, buttons and glitter heart chipboard. Silver pipe cleaners were coiled up and placed on the chimney as well as tinsel. I made a crepe paper rosette and printed out "Joyeux Noel" on cardstock to adhere on top of the rosette.
