Christmas tree hangers

I was so struck by a Christmas tree hanger ornament that I received from Lynn that I just had to experiment and make some.. and now I am hooked!



The silver borders are simple peel-offs that I had in a 'give-away' box, because I didn't know how to value them properly. My son Joël had given them as a gift last Christmas - now I wish he had brought some more with him!! Isn't that nice to actually be happy with something you thought you would never use??

I embossed over the hangers about three to four times, this is what gives them that ornamental feel.

  5. These are fantastic. I love the stickers around the edges. I thought it was embossed with silver embossing but this is better because it stands out beautifully and looks like it is framed.

  7. I'm surprised you didn't like the silver edging right away....seems like it would go perfectly with your art. But you've found a great use for them now....such gorgeous vintage ornaments.
    (I decorate my tree this year with only my handmade ornaments .... and a few from friends such as you, and it looked so lovely!)

  13. Stunning 'hangers' the way you have used the peel offs is an inspiration, I like the term you used 'to value them properly' I think a lot of us have items in our stash that are not valued properly and can become beautiful with a little love and inspiration TFS XXX
