This is the progressive photo tale of how 300 gingerbread ornaments came to life!
We were asked to custom design and paint 150 ornaments, to be used as wedding favours for a 2007 Christmas wedding.
We came up with this cute couple ornament. She will have a real lace veil, he will feature a black ribbon bow tie and the couple's name will be hand painted inside the heart. The ornament will hang from a festive red ribbon.
This is what the 300+ ornaments look like at the moment. Step one is always so overwhelming!
We plan to make extras to sell at Serendipity-Crafts.com; some to be decorated as wedding couples, some not.
Production has begun. The ornaments are basecoated and Elizabeth applies the "splatter".
Hugh adds the buttons and eyes.

The gingerbread get a little sweeter, with the addition of "frosting".
Pure gingerbread love.
Red hot gingerbread love.
The gingerbread is ready!
