Every reader knows how I love my Frozen Charlottes. After signing up for the ornament exchange at Vicky's, I decided to make ornaments using three of the girls.
One would travel to Magali in Brittany, France.
(The Little White House On The Seaside)
One would travel to Vicky (Life On Willie Mae Lane) in Florida.
And one would stay here with me and hang on the tree.
*Three Frozen Charlottes
(They all clamored to go - it was hard to choose!)
*Three small paper mache' boxes with window lids
*Bottle brush trees
Mod Podge the paper on the boxes.
While the bottoms dried, I painted the lids with blue.
Then I added a silver glaze over both the lids and the bottoms.
I attached a silver wire to the sides and secured it with small buttons. I used an eyelet on the holes so the wire would not pull through.
The Frozen Charlottes and bottle brush trees were attached with E-6000.
Yes, it is difficult to glue a one-legged doll to a small box.
Added some silver glitter around each opening.
Glued the lid to the bottom.
A Carol Of The Holly - on the back of each.
I stamped the lids with "NOEL" and some stars.
Tied on a silvery tinsel ribbon.
Displayed them with a book of maps of Paris just in case one gets to go there!
Hey, where did my sisters go?
Don't despair - this Charlotte will be prominently displayed on my tree.
Magali and Vicky loved their ornaments.
I had so much fun making them that I forgot to make extras for family and friends.
Back to work.
