A Kitschy Collection of Kitschmas Ornaments

Here are some homemade Xmas ornaments I have picked up at various sales…. first we have a happy Xmas octopus…. googly eyes are a must.

A great felt owl with fantastic sequins for that glamorous touch.

Here’s a santa made of puff-balls and such…

Here’s a cat with a puff-ball face and a heart-button mouth.. and googly eyes, of course.

I don’t think these Santas are home made but I really like them. Glitter and their little faces are very endearing.

    The Happy Christmas octopus kills me.

    The owl makes me swoon. Very fancy. I love his diamond nose and he sports an excellent color scheme.

    The puffball Santa is adorable.

    Oh God, the little cat kills me too. That tail sticking out…

    I like the glitter beards and balls at the end of the hats on the last two Santas but a prefer the homemade quality of the other ornaments any day!

    I only collected Christmas ornaments for one year and then ended up giving them all away because it felt to blasphemous as a Jew. But looking at these homemade ornaments makes me think I need to re-examine collecting them!

    I love these…so sweet. I love the googly eyes…and I love that you can cut the near bottom off a circle and make Santa a laughing/twinkling eye…??
    Love the yarn Octopus …does anyone remember the vintage really THICK Yarn that was sold as ribbon??.. Did that follow shortly after Sasheen in the wonderful world of gift wrap?? I loved it!!!.. I thought all the bright colors the yarn and paper came in, were so MOD… and so Modern..
