I used two images from Gecko Galz to create these vintage chenille ornaments. Gecko Galz sell digital collage sheets, digital stamps and papers. They are very generous with their free images. Go to the site and grab the free images for the month of November. They also share images on their Fripperies & Butterflies site. There are some really cute winter inspired images up for grabs right now (click on link).
I resized the photos until the heads were the size needed and then I printed them out. I glued the heads onto cardstock and fussy cut them out. There are many tutorials on how to create a chenille stem doll. I just messed around and made mine and then looked up directions to make sure they looked right. Yes, that's how I roll. I used buttons to further reinforce the structure. Along with the buttons, the ornaments are embellished with glitter, pompoms and vintage looking trees.
