Be Jolly Pocket Ornament

Here is the last pocket ornament for this Christmas.  This one is for my only niece and after four boy ornaments, I was so relieved to be able to play with the frills and flowers again!

The Details:
  • This ornament has so many elements that I personally LOVE that it's hard to choose a favorite, but I do adore the uniqueness of the feather fill.  I was going to use the same fill on all five pockets, but while digging in the much-picked-over Christmas floral section of JoAnn, I happened upon some feather picks with little jingle bells mixed in.  How could I resist?!
  • Working our way down, I used ribbon as the hanger for a soft, feminine touch.
  • I found this gold mesh ribbon last season in the clearance bin...what a fabulous find!  It makes a lovely topper and the pearls add a creamy softness.
  • Christ is the reason for the season, and this vintage image from The Graphics Fairy is just gorgeous!  I added just a bit of Stickles to His halo and the dove.
  • The dimensional "Be Jolly" sticker is nestled in with a felt and silk poinsettias, some leaves, and a bridal pick.
  • I used my tiny attacher to seal the bottom of the tube and covered the evidence of my shortcut with some velvet ruffle ribbon.
