12 Days of Christmas Simple Ornament


Simple Silhouette Cameo Cross Ornament from Antonella at www.quilling.blogspot.com


12 Days of Christmas - Day 8 - Simple Silhouette Cameo Cross Ornament

Greetings my friends, today is a simple ornament that you can make. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the shapes. Then I layered them, added lots of glitter, sequins, and gems. Perfect for adding to a card or your Christmas Tree.

I believe that the ornament shape is one I got from Bird's Cards, you have to stop over and see her site, she has so many free cut files for all occasions. The cross shapes I created myself, I would love to share them with you but the computer I used for my crafting has died. Could not save it, so I am now hoping to be able to retrieve the files off of it (I know, I should have been doing regular backups). Big sigh!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

12 Days of Christmas Tree Ornament Quilled

This super cute Quilled Christmas Tree ornament is easy to make. The pattern is versatile enough that you could wear it as a necklace or earrings if you wanted to.  Hop over to see what Antonella has for you at www.quilling.blogspot.com. #quilling #ornament


12 Days of Christmas - Day 5 - Quilled Christmas Tree Ornament

Everyone should have a Christmas Tree, and this 3D Scroll Tree is just the thing. Lots of paper strips of various sizes, create some v-scrolls and assemble.

I used the 1/8 in (.3 cm) wide quilling paper. This photo shows green, but it looks nice in a multitude of colors like blue, turquoise, white, purple, pink, you name it.

Create the base of the tree by rolling a wider strip, approximately 3/4 in to 1 in wide

For the Branches (lol)

  • Cut 2 strips at various lengths (I cut about 4 different lengths) 3 in, 2-1/2 in, 2 in, 1 in
  • Note: These lengths are estimates, I did not measure them
  • Make V-Scrolls
  • Starting at the bottom, glue the v-scrolls starting with your trunk
  • Alternate which side they face so that as you move upward and build your tree moving you fill in the empty spots
  • Attach a hanger and you have an ornament
  • Tip: This can also If you make it smaller you can 

Tips / Hints / Ideas:

  • You can also wear this as a necklace, you can make it smaller or really small and wear them as dangly earrings too
  • If you are looking for something more festive, you can decorate the tree by adding a garland and some tiny paper ornaments or lights


How do you select your tree each year? I was talking with a friend about her journey to get their tree this year and thought I'd share.  This was the first time they were going to pick a tree from a tree farm, as luck would have it, it had rained all day the day prior, so the ground was very muddy. They were not deterred, she and her sister picked a tree, then waited for their tree, and waited, and waited... When they got the tree home, it was a little bigger than they thought it was going to be.  As we chuckled over the story, I told her that I should have warned her about being careful about how big the tree really is, they don't look quite so large among the other trees.  Do you have a Christmas Tree story?
