After years of
hoarding collecting vintage goodies I had a whole drawer full of all different shapes and sizes of tart tins. Every couple of years I pull them out and make these vintage tart tin Christmas ornaments. I use whatever I have on hand so each time they look a little different.

Supplies for vintage tart tin Christmas ornaments:
- vintage tart tins
- vintage keys
- vintage buttons
- vintage dictionary pages
- snow writer (DecoArt supplied this product for me but the ideas and opinions are my own.)
- pine chenille stem ( I found these at Hobby Lobby but I didn’t see them online.)
- tiny bottle brush Christmas trees
- hot glue gun
- circle paper punch
- wire ornament hooks
- metal hole punch (I use my Euro tool power punch pliers)
Each ornament is always unique but I usually start with vintage text as the background. I ink the edges to age them even more, punch a hole at the top, and then start gluing.
I trimmed the back of the tiny bottle brush tree to get it to lay flatter.
I even used a few leftover beads on this next one. I was having trouble squeezing out the snow so I just painted it on with a little paintbrush.
