Riddersholm Christmas bells


                            I don't know about you but I love hunting for unique vintage items to alter.  I was lucky enough to find a couple of vintage bell mini tart pans in my travels.  I decided to create ornaments from them.  I sprayed the bell first with white spray paint and let it cure.  From there I covered the outline of the bell and  the inside with vintage tinsel.  I picked an image from  A Christmas Story and adhered it to a glass cabochon.  I than adhered a vintage rhinestone brooch to the top of the image as a "frame".   From here I just had fun adding bits and bobs....I did some bead work and added vintage jewelry pieces and let them hang from inside.  I added heaps of red seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well.  More vintage jewelry on top and a  metal star and I was done.  I just used a regular metal ornament hook adhered to the top.  Would make a pretty present for someone this season.  Or nestle among the boughs on your own tree this year!  I had so much fun creating this...hope you enjoy!  hugs, cherry
