I didn’t find the pieces that I have in mind for my candelabra makeover at the flea market this past weekend, but that’s OK. I’d rather wait for just the right pieces rather than just throw something together. I’ll find them… it’s just a matter of time, and I’ll post it as soon as I do.
Instead I made some Christmas tree ornaments using some other thrifted finds… vintage jello molds and tart tins.
Here’s one of the tart tin reflector ornaments that I made.
And here’s what I did with the jello molds from this thrifted finds post.
I drilled two holes into each mold and tart tin using a small metal drill bit.
Strung each with some jute twine.
When I had all the molds and tart tins drilled and strung I started playing with these vintage plastic reflectors from this thrifted finds post.
I chose different types and colours turning these…
I added vintage glass ball ornaments to the middle of two of the reflectors, and the other four have salvaged rhinestones from vintage broken brooches as their centres. All were glued in place using Marine GOOP adhesive.
Here’s another set of jello molds…
that became these… all of these have vintage glass ball ornaments as their centres.
Here’s a set of tart tins that I thrifted a while back.
Now they look like this.
All these ornaments are available in my shoppe here.
Have a beautiful day.
