Vintage inspired handpainted ornaments

When I think of Christmas ornaments it's the vintage glass ones that always first come to mind. My mom has bunches of them but this year I realized I only have some reproductions (shown above). Don't know the truly vintage ones I'm talking about? I've got lots pinned to my 'Is it Christmas yet?' board.

For the last couple years I've been making these same shaped paper ornaments but using washi tape to adorn them. I was a little tired of making that style so I was excited to find another way to utilize my geometric ornament shape.

I used my pointed calligraphy dip pen to create the vintage inspired patterns. I printed them on paper and then added some hand painted elements with gold and silver metallic acrylics before folding them into their tear drop shape.

If you'd like a pair of your own I've got a few sets available in my etsy shop!
