Copy Cat Christmas Ornaments

I'm participating in Debbiedoo's Holiday Knock-off Party tonight.

Last Friday I went to Matilda's Mouse, our once-a-month antique barn sale in the area.  My girlfriend's and I LOVE to check out their latest finds.  I was specifically searching for tiny salt and pepper shakers in order to copy these adorable Pinterest ornaments for my kitchen tree.

I found a set of four salt and pepper shakers and whipped up the quick little project.

 I think they might need some glitter inside them.  I have one more to do, so we'll see how they end up.


  1. hi karen! those are adorable! i have not seen that idea before, but love it! i think i would fill them with fake snow or epsom salts which looks kind of like snow...
    my big puter is on the fritz again, so no posting for me until??
    it was 75 here yesterday and today it got down to 34! so it feels a little more christmasy... i spose you are enjoying lovely california weather?

  2. Where did you find such a tiny little tree? Is it alive and in a pot? it's so cute! I would love to have small and real, themed trees around the house. Just haven't found any.

  3. I adore anything using tiny bottles, and your ornaments are so cute! I am pinning this right now! I used pretty small bottles, hung them with green slender ribbon from the chandelier, and filled them each with a small bay leaf branch from my tree. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and glad you liked the red ice skates project!

  4. Now....those are just adorable. And I bet some silver glitter inside or fake snow would be really cute. I make tassels from old figural salt and pepper shakers and have been collecting so I can make some after Christmas. Enjoy the season. xo

  5. Completely and utterly enchanting!

    You are such a clever and creative elf.

    Have a holly jolly day!

    I just found your blog through Pinterest and am so glad I did! Thank you for sharing your life and creativity via uplifting photos and kind words.


  7. oh my such a darling little tree...your little ornaments are adorable. You did an amazing job. xo

  8. These are darling! I just love them and I love your tree.

  9. These are SO cute! Putting glitter inside the little shakers would make them even more sparkly and festive. Love this idea.
