Handmade Holiday Ornament Exchange – Appliances

This is the fourth year that my sister and I are exchanging handmade Christmas ornaments. We base our theme each year on the anniversary gift suggestion for that year. Since this is the fourth year, the suggestion is Fruit/Flowers {traditional} or Appliances {modern}.

I immediately thought of a little stove appliance covered with flowers.

I began with a sheet of Sizzix ScoreBoard and the Oven 3D die. I glued some bits of paper from my beloved Cosmo Cricket stash. I even found a piece that had the little “starburst” shapes that I punched out to look like stovetop burners. I attached those with foam glue dots.

I added flowers that I layered using small brads and then glued them to the front of the stove drawer.

To create the hanging loop, I used some vintage seam binding and glued another flower on the back to make it look pretty.

I like to stamp the date on all of my ornaments and cards as a finishing touch.

Finally, here is another view of the finished ornament. The drawer front pulls out and I filled it with small candies.

Hope you enjoyed this series of Handmade Holiday Ornaments.
