Filigree Gingerbread House Ornament!


I had mentioned in my last video for my subscribers to let me know what kind of ornament they would like to see made. There were some great ideas and 1 of them I just had to make. I didn’t add it to the series because I’m not ready for the series to be over yet. Here is her comment.


I thought about how to make it while at work and got busy as soon as I got home. I used filigrees from Dee (Elegant Embellishments) and ButterBee Scraps. Although I don’t think Elegant Embellishments has any filigrees left in stock. I used brads to attach all the filigrees. I also used a lock embellishment from MyScrapbookorner. Once the house was assembled I lightly went over the filigrees with paint on my finger to bring out the beautiful design. I added some gorgeous trims from One Little Dreamer and that was it. The video tutorial is quite long but I didn’t want to cut anything out. To see the video tutorial scroll down.






Thanks for stopping by and please share with your friends!

Also I would love to see you work with mirrors, feathers and bling for an ornament.

  4. Hi, I’ve been loving all your craft videos. I am new to creating with filigree pieces. You used a tool to cut holes in the filigree but i didn’t catch the name of it. And where can I purchase one? Thank you! I love, love, love your crafts.
