Button Floozies Christmas Ornament Swap 2012

Here is the ornament that I made and sent to my swap partners in the Button Floozies Christmas Ornament Swap!
I made it from a vintage Jello mold tin that I painted, glittered, and filled with snowy things!
There's a little vintage Monopoly house and hotel -- the old, wooden ones -- that I painted white, as well as a bottle brush tree and little sequined trim flowers that look like snow-covered bushes.
The hanger is held in place by a mother of pearl button, and the rest of the required buttons for the swap are dangles hanging from the top.  I love making these!

How utterly charming! This weekend, at a yard sale, I found a bunch of vintage individual-sized jello molds. Now I know what to do with them: Christmas versions of those lovely old sugar eggs at Easter. Thanks for a wonderful idea!
That is a beautiful ornament! I love your blog!
