Home Made Hostess, Gift #2
I was in need of something festive to wear to a Christmas party last week. Gaudy and over sized accessories appeal to me a great deal so whatever it was had to go along those lines. I was inspired by Magpie Ethel's collection of vintage Christmas corsages and decided to make one of my own.
This summer I purchased two different kinds of vintage tinsel, one gold and the other silver at yard sales for a few quarters.
I also had a bag of "Swedish molds" from an estate sale that I just had to have but didn't know what I was going to do with them. After flattening them, I glued cut tinsel all around the edges. Then added some vintage birds also from yard sale.
They blended together to make a wonderful accessory!
