50s Style Ornament Tutorial
I was inspired to make this little tree ornament based off of an ornament in my A Very Vintage Christmas book by Bob Richter. Inside is a sequined and beaded tree that his mother made in a social group in the 50s. I have admired this ornament for a long time and I decided to make my own version. Mine is more extravagant than hers but that was because I ran out of green sequins and needed to fill up the gaps with beads and other charms. I guess, long story short, plan before your craft :)
To start, I needed a tree shaped a foam to serve as my base and to do that I took and egg shaped foam and chopped off the larger bottom bit to get a flat edge. Then I shaved off the sides to smooth them into a rough tree shape.
