Christmas Ornaments

Make Your Own Authentic Victorian Christmas Ornament


 

This whimsical Victorian Christmas ornament is an authentic reprint of a 1800's pattern provided by Godey’s magazine. The printed design for the Christmas ornament elephant was hand-colored and sprinkled with various colors of glitter. Embroidered ribbon and green beads were attached to the ornament with glue. Silk fringe and red tassels were also added. Finally a scrap or die cut of a Victorian girl was placed atop the elephant to complete the Christmas craft.
