Upcycled Jello Mold Christmas Ornaments

Hello! I'm back with yet another Christmas craft project... I'm on a roll yo!!

Today I'm sharing some cute little upcycled Jello mold ornaments.

Adorable Christmas ornaments made from old Jello Molds

I found a stack of these vintage Jello molds at Goodwill and I immediately saw little diorama ornaments!

I used Christmas themed scrapbook papers and Mod Podge to adhere the papers to the inside, back of each mold.

Then I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in the top of each mold for the ribbon hanger.

A little Glitter...

Then I went through my craft supply stash of do-dads, thingamajigs, and what-knots and made a little scene in each mold.

I made the little angel from a tiny perfume bottle that I have saved for umpteen years... for who knows why...

I fashioned arms with Silver Tinsel Pipe Cleaners.

The spun cotton head is something that I've had for years but there are some cute one's here: Spun Cotton Doll Heads with Faces. I used another pipe cleaner in the bottom of the head.

Then I just slid the pipe cleaner down into the bottle and used a little glue to secure the head to the bottle.

And the bottle lid created a cute little hat!

Now that I had my little dioramas set up I used Mini Alphabet Rubber Stamps to create some little banners.

And here are the finished products!

Some got mini bottle brush trees. There are some super cute one's here: Pink Bottle Brush Trees. The "ornaments" are pearls off an old necklace.

Mini Glass Ball Christmas Ornaments...

The cute little angel got a little choir book made from a snippet of a music sheet.

This one is my favorite. I love the little deer... there are some different one's here: Plastic Reindeer Ornaments and here are some of the Miniature Mushrooms.

Santa is a vintage ornament I picked up at one of my favorite antique shops.

And this cute little girl is a package tie on. I made a little folded accordion paper piece and glued it behind her so she sticks out from the mold a little bit.

These were fun to make, I love playing around in my craft supplies and making a big ol' glittery mess 😁

Do you have a favorite?

Tania said...

Thanks Brenda, and thanks for pinning!


Tania said...

I really love the angel one too, she turned out so cute!


Tania said...

Thanks Linda! You definitely should craft with your molds :o)

Oh, Tania, these are so cute. Of course I have to choose the perfumed angel as my favorite but they are all adorable.

Vicky Hunt said...

These are adorable! I'm glad I'm glad I'm not the only one who keeps little random objects (sometimes for years) before I finally find a use for them. I just hate throwing away things that I know will be used someday. Hope you're having a great week and selling lots in your booth!

Tania said...

Thank you Amalia! I love the little angel too, she turned out pretty darling!


Tania said...

Thanks Vicky! It's very hard for me NOT to save every little bit and bob!


Courtney @ Charity Sparrow said...

These are all so cute! I think the Santa is my fave! xo

Tania said...

Thanks Courtney! I love Santa too. I bought a couple of vintage angels at the same time I bought Santa but they were too big for the Jello molds. I'll have to find another way to use them :o)


Courtney @ Charity Sparrow said...

Sounds like a great find, I'll look forward to seeing what you create with them, too! :)

Van said...

That set you made is perfection! I love the colors and contrast of textures, such a good way to use up the little bits and bobs that hang around a crafter's space! I wish you were here to make ornaments with me or host an ornament making class. I need to make ornaments badly! I have zero, zero ornaments! haha Except for one a friend made me and others she left in my store to sell.

Tania said...

Aww, thank you! I wish we could get together and make ornaments too, that would be fun!


Tuula @ Thrifty Rebel Vintage said...

These are so adorable Tania! I especially them all, but have a soft spot for that sweet little deer. I've pinned!

Kerryanne @Shabby Art Boutique said...

These are so sweet Tania. Thank you for linking up at Shabbilicious Friday. I'm delighted to be featuring you little jello molds at tomorrow's party and pinning too!

Tania said...

Hi Kerryanne! Thank you so much!


Tania said...

Thank you Tuula! I love the little deer too, thanks for pinning!


Diana Petrillo said...

Tania--these are seriously the cutest, most original ornaments I've seen in a long while. LOVE them to death. I'll be posting on Facebook and am pinning now :)

Tania said...

Aww, thank you so much Diana!!


Naomi Shelton said...

What an inspired way to use these little tin jello molds. I think my favorite is the little perfume bottle girl. Next, I like the little girl with the "holly jolly christmas" label. They are all cute though and such a good way to use up odds and ends. So that you have room to collect more odds and ends!

Tania said...

Hi Naomi! Thank you so much! They are a great way to use up odds and ends and I'm always picking up more odds and ends (I just can't help myself) so I definitely need to make room!
