Vintage Christmas Ornaments Set

Several weeks ago I found treasure at a thrift store. The treasure was in the form of a giant bag of old Christmas ornaments. I don’t know anything about these ornaments but I’ve been slowly collecting them as I see them. Previous to this I had only about 10. They remind me of some ornaments my great grandma gave me when I was little. I have no idea the history behind these, I just know that I love them.

Some of the ornaments were missing their hanging strings, so I decided to do something else with a few of them and I made some snow globe jars with vintage ornaments . I gathered up some jars and some fake snow and I purchased some mini trees and mini snowballs from Hobby Lobby. How cute are those snowballs!!

I loved the snowmen but they still had their strings attached and I was really hesitant to cut them off. I stared at them for a full 5 minutes and asked everyone in my family if I should do it. They all said no, but in the end I just went for it. And I’m glad I did, because they are adorable tucked into the snow.

Spending an hour making these made my crafty heart happy. I grouped them on a table in my entry way and they make me smile every time I walk by. So hit up your thrift store and see what ornaments you can rescue. You can always find abandoned Christmas village people as well. Happy Christmas crafting!
