Ever since we started dating, my husband and I would pick out little ornaments for each other for the holidays. Sometimes we will make something, even edible. Last year I tried needle felting a gray whale for him. It looked as good as the store bought, which can be good or bad, since some store bought mass produced items don’t always look so good. I wasn’t happy with it…he loved it, and kept it out all year. I am still new at the needle felting world. Small projects are best when starting up the hobby of needle felting. Oh, and watch those fingers.
I started looking for an ornament this year for my husband as soon as they started putting out Christmas here in our state. Along the way I took some photos on my hunt to share with you all. See if you can guess which ornament I picked for him. I can’t believe how many choices there are out there. Years ago it was not so easy finding the perfect ornament to fit each individuals personality. But now…WOW, they have so many. Down below in photo there is a stick of butter as an ornament.
First I will start with all the hand made ornaments I came across, which weren’t a lot. Most hand made gets made by who ever likes that style. They just hit the hobby stores and buy the supplies, then create something themselves. Sometimes it’s fun to buy them too. Which reminds me, I want to visit a Christmas craft show coming up this weekend.
These fuzzy dogs were cute. They look like they are needle felted.
There were so many animal themed ornaments.
There were several vintage ornaments in the antique/second hand shops. Mostly ornaments from the 1990’s.
And here is a whole variety of ornaments I came across.
There were so many, and on and on it goes, rows and rows of them everywhere. A little overwhelming to be honest. A lot of fun to look through though. Can you guess which one I picked for my husband? I will give you a clue…he loves space. I have a favorite one too but I didn’t buy it, can you guess which one that was? Happy ornament shopping everyone.
