Reopened Etsy Shop


I reopened my etsy shop today after a loooong hiatus. I made up quite a few kits because I know that crafty people like to make their own things. However all of the actual items are available for sale so message me if you are interested.

There is a card kit with supplies to make six of the sweetest little glittered cards for Valentine's Day or for anyday you need to send a card to someone special.









Some kits for little diioramas in papier mache shadowboxes:


This kit has a flat backed resin doll in a papier mache shadow box:


This one is in a round shadowbox with a glitttered ballerina, bird and hearts.


This kit has a little vintage Easter bunnyin a small round papier mache box:


This one comes with a little celluloid doll in a crepe paper dress and a tiny little deer.



There are kits for making felted wool hearts for Valentine's Day:


these have the cutest little flat backed resin dolls on them that I painted.


Perfect for Valentine's Day crafting:




Shotgun shells that can be used as bezels in jewelry making. I have removed the plastic parts from these shell casings:





Some cute little aqua sew-ons that can be glued or sewn onto your mixed media projects.


These come with either silver or gold bugle beads:



I plan to put more stuff in the shop soon.

There are also some old favorites such as these silver-colored plastic buttons.



These darling plastic baby dolls for crafting.


Some vintage flower millinery trim:




Sheets of EAS scrap paper with cherubs, right in time for Valentine's Day.



Please go over and have a look at my little shop and add me to your favorites.  Also if you are on Facebook, please like my business page here: Debs Vintage Chic Creations. The page is new but I plan to add lots more soon. I would love to keep in touch with you all.

Have a wonderful day with lots of Vintage style.

Birdhouse Ornaments



I also made eight birdhouse ornaments during the holiday season in 2013. I got the idea from similar vintage ornaments I have seen online and decided to make my own.


I used reproduction German scrap, gold Dresden, dyed felt, crinkly tinsel wire and vintage tinsel over wire for the handles.


Roofs are covered with glass glitter:


This one has a corrugated roof and old sheet music:


Also bits of old millinery:
  Blue:


 I made the roofs in different directions:






This one is the only one with a gold glass glitter roof:


The houses are wrapped with coffee dyed felt and crinkly wire.


All different:




so cute together:






Have a wonderful day with lots of Vintage style.

Little Charlotte Box Ornaments




These are some ornaments I made last year.


I bought two bags of tiny unfinished papier mache boxes from Joann's in their after Christmas 50% sale and made these ornaments.


The boxes are very small maybe 2.5 inches by one inch wide and come in various shapes -- stars, snowmen, Christmas trees

There were about six tiny boxes in each package so I still have plenty left.



I covered the boxes with Christmas paper and added wire hooks for hanging. The hooks hold the two parts of the boxes together.



I sent them out to my partners in my Christmas swap, along with a bunch of other ornaments I will share with you later.


The Charlotte dolls are also very small about 2.inches or so..


silver German glitter inside:


I got the idea from some similar items I have seen online but I decided to dress my dolls in tulle and a small vintage metal flower at the waist.




They were fun to make and oh so cute. ...


Have a wonderful day with lots of Vintage style.
