And done!

The last two designs for the Wizard of Oz ornaments are done. Today I have for you, the Tin Man and Glinda the Good Witch.

For the Tin Man, I used three different shades of grey wool felt. I didn’t have a silver funnel for his head, but I made these with card stock and painted them silver. Poor things have such a stunned look on their faces, not sure where that came from…;o)  The trim around the neck called for grey crepe paper which I don’t have, but I did have some grey lace. I just trimmed it a bit narrower and used that. Maybe it makes him a bit more glam.

The hatch he’s holding, came from a great seller on Etsy. Melissa is a very reliable seller and even crossing borders, my orders always arrive very fast. I finished both of these ornament sets the night before and yesterday the charms arrived so I could put the final touches on them. So thanks again Melissa for great service.

Glinda is the last one to be done. I have turned one of them around, so you could see what I did for the feather effect. Cathy uses Dresden paper wings and also Dresden paper crowns. I didn’t have either of those, but the white feathers worked out nicely. The silver charm crowns from Melissa worked out perfectly. There wasn’t much opportunity to change colours for Glinda, but I used silver snowflake charms for the staff she’s holding and I did use two different snowflakes there, but that’s it… 

Today I’m going to switch over to clay and take a break from fiddly work… back next week with more doings from my worktable. Have a great weekend.

  1. Each piece is so cute and so much work. I have a few of these patterns, but not as much patience as you.

  2. Your ornaments are spectacular with all the wonderful details done in the silver and white. Glinda is a step up from spectacular. The love of your art comes through.
