Vintage Tart Tin Christmas Ornaments

I pulled out some vintage fluted oval tart tins and decided to make them into Christmas ornaments...

I have a huge stash of vintage die-cut angels that I simply adore, that along with some one-hundred year old sheet music and I was all set to create some little ornaments.

 I matched each little cherubs sash color to the vintage seam binding I used as the hangers on the ornaments. yes, I have that much vintage seam binding-- hooray!

I also added a clear faceted glass bead to dangle at the bottom of each tart tin.

I punched the holes in each tin by using one of my eyelet punches. Some tins were a little thicker than the others, but with some work, the eyelet punch created very nice little holes in the tins.

 I will pack these up to take with me to next months Artists Market that I will be a vendor at...
 
big hugs,

These are enchanting! I have a pile of tins in my "to do" pile and I'm hoping they will get done! I'm not sure they'll be as cute as yours, though, even if they do!
