Handmade Christmas Ornaments by Martha Stewart

Handmade Christmas ornaments à la Martha Stewart, and how I'm going to use her ideas for my own shell ornaments!

Martha Stewart's handmade Christmas ornaments look divine, don't you think! All glittered and some adorned with fancy things like pearls and tinsel. Martha is known for perfection, not so much for easy breezy, getting it done in no time. That's why I'm posting this early! Click on the links for Martha's tutorials.

What a stunning Christmas tree. My plan for handmade Christmas ornaments -to make all my shells look like Martha's tree topper, but without the glitter (just too messy for me). So stay tuned!

So beautiful! I love shells on trees. My Aunt asked me recently if I was going to make starfish ornaments with my left over starfish from my wedding but I don't want to part with them and send them to the beach house!

Didn't you have a stash of shells that already had natural holes in them? I think drilling is the hardest part. I love your idea to just paint them gold and use the pearls, I think I would like them better that way (and that's coming from a gal that even likes working with glitter!). ~Lili

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Lili: I used the shells with the natural holes in them for a garland. Then I have a hole bunch of the same type of shells, but without holes..., so I'm drilling all of those! It should go really easy, the shells are quite thin.

I love ALL things Martha - how beautiful are these?

Marie @ Sally Lee by the Sea said...

Well, you KNOW I love these, Maya! I found that by brushing my shells with a high gloss varnish and then sprinkling fine glitter while the varnish is wet seems to work and the glitter doesn't come off nearly as much.

Hugs.

What a stunning tree! I love the glittery shells and the starfish are so pretty against the green tree. It really brings out their fabulous shape! Hope you will post a pic of your tree!!
