Last year, I made these 1958 mischievous pixie ornaments from a vintage magazine.They turned out so cute and are now some of my favorite holiday decorations. This is a fun project that the kids can help with and they match beautifully with your other retro Christmas kitsch.
You will need:
ball ornaments- I used plastic modern ones. I love unbreakables with little ones around!
small pom poms
colorful foil scrapbook paper (available in full sheets or small sample packs from craft stores)
red seed beads (for the mouth)
ribbon or yarn for hanging the ornaments
glue- we used hot glue and tacky glue
other bits such as spangles, sequins, tiny foil or bottle brush trees.
Download the pattern and instructions from Dropbox. Set your printer at 100% to print pattern at actual size
If you have a hard time finding trees, I found some green foil cocktail picks at the craft store and when you snip them short, they're great little trees!
You can also curl metallic pipe cleaners into spirals to make a tree. if you do this, hot glue the ribbon to the ball and pull the ribbon up through the center of the spiral tree, as pictured.
I hope that you and your family enjoy making memories with these funny mid-century sprites!
Stay tuned later this week for more vintage Christmas DIY projects!
