Little Charlotte Box Ornaments

These are some ornaments I made last year.

I bought two bags of tiny unfinished papier mache boxes from Joann's in their after Christmas 50% sale and made these ornaments.

The boxes are very small maybe 2.5 inches by one inch wide and come in various shapes -- stars, snowmen, Christmas trees

There were about six tiny boxes in each package so I still have plenty left.

I covered the boxes with Christmas paper and added wire hooks for hanging. The hooks hold the two parts of the boxes together.

I sent them out to my partners in my Christmas swap, along with a bunch of other ornaments I will share with you later.

The Charlotte dolls are also very small about 2.inches or so..

I got the idea from some similar items I have seen online but I decided to dress my dolls in tulle and a small vintage metal flower at the waist.

They were fun to make and oh so cute. ...

Have a wonderful day with lots of Vintage style.
