Vintage Diorama Ornament

I love the simplicity of  these Vintage Diorama Ornaments.  
I haven't come across any so it looks like I get to make some.  These are the clear plastic photo ornaments.  When you  take them apart they become 2 ornaments costing me pennies.  They are tiny so I kept the decorating to a minimum.  Which is never easy!
I coated the inside of the ornament in clear rock candy distress glitter.


See, just clear and plastic... what a little glitter and ink can't accomplish.



I cut the Dimensional Star to float in the center and wrapped with tinsel twine to hide the lip of the ornament.


This one is the same but I used the antique linen distress glitter.


The mini red lantern is hung and wrapped in pine twine.


My second ornament I painted with candied apple distress paint and coated with clear rock candy. 


I painted the deer, spritzed the mini tree and added a teen pinecone.  I used the Bow Punch for the tiding bow.


The outside gets a coat of glitter too!  The 4th ornament is drying.


Hung from the tree.


It can be hard not to fill it.


I love the woodland feel of this one.


My empty little tree is slowly filling up with homemade vintage inspired ornaments.  I have fun every year adding to it.
