rudolph and snowy house ornament

Posted on December 23rd, 2014 by mountain girl  |  9 Comments »


Here’s an aspen wood ornament I made for my very sweet in-laws.Ā  It features Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on one side and a snowy house on the other.


I worked it in colored and metallic inks.Ā  The wood has a natural crack in it and I let the wood background show through on the snowy house side.


I fashioned a simple wire for it…


and it now hangs on David’s parents’ tree in Santa Fe, NM, surrounded by farolitos. šŸ™‚

Feliz Navidad

Can you find it?

    Pretty ornaments and if Papa hadn’t scrolled down I would have missed Lisa and Larry’s Christmas tree…..I think the little snow house ornament is halfway up on the right???? How pretty she’s made everything! The farolitos will be lit up outside, right? Pretty artwork,Mia.

    Mom, glad you liked it! Your Christmas tree is a tiny bit bigger and more decorated than ours…;)

    Mimi, noooooo…keep looking. šŸ˜‰ Hint: it’s the Rudolph side.
    And I’m such a nor’easter, I’m not sure if theirs will go outside. But I’m sure David will let you know. Mr. Farolito Expert, he is. šŸ˜‰

    Unless you want your house to go up in flames, then yes, farolitos go outside /:0)
