I’m still finishing up all the ornament tutorials for this years tree and these are the vintage art supply ornaments:
These were so easy to make in bulk:
It’s as simple as printing off a label, cutting it out and applying it to a small gift box or bottle:
For the rectangular ornaments, I purchased these packs of small mixed gift boxes from Michaels:
I printed the vintage-inspired box labels onto 8.5″x11″ white label paper (which is essentially a huge white sticker you can print onto). My friend, artist Stephanie Corfee, made these cute labels for me! Click the image to download (or click here) the free PDF: (And please help me thank her by following her amazing work on Instagram!)
I cut out the labels and applied them to the boxes. Each box was glued shut and a string attached under the lid with the same glue:
For the vintage-inspired bottles I purchased this bulk pack of small bottles (found in the wedding section of Michaels):
To make them appear filled with old ink or other liquid I just misted some various colors of spray paint into each bottle:
Once the paint was dry I put a little bit of industrial glue onto each cork to keep it in place permanently. Then I added the labels:
Don’t they almost look real?
I think I could just fill a tree with just these!
Here’s what the bottles look like on the tree:
