Something ‘old’ is new again!

Aren’t these the sweetest little ice cream cups you’ve ever seen?

I bought them from Etsy and she still has some listed in her shop HERE.

They are considered ‘unused old store stock’ and they are perfect.

I wanted to make some cute snowmen to put in them and that proved more of a challenge than I expected. I cut out snowmen and kept ‘perfecting’ my design. But then I made hats and scarves for them and they all came out kind of cute.

Here’s a sneak peek at what a mess I make when I ‘work’! lol

I found a pixie that was decorating in this one.

Vintage Ice cream cups...they are so cute! Your labor of love is so rewarding....great job on each of these cuties. Makes for a double sweet treat.

Both. But only as the spirit moves me. I seem to be slow this year, or perhaps everyone else in high gear so much earlier. Love your snowmen. And we are messy kinderd spirits.

Linda Kay said...

God just didn't give me that "crafty" talent..all went to my artist brother who can create masterpieces from wood. But nice job on these. I stand back and admire.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

Well yours are cute and fun. I was sewing binding on a quilt today ...the height of boredom, lol...

Vee said...

Those are very cute bases for your snowmen and elf. No, I am not terribly crafty; though I enjoy the result, I often do not enjoy the process.

Lynn said...

Lovin' your little knee hugger in the cup! I'm going junking with Ma this weekend and I'm really hoping to find one:@)

They're not just kind of cute, they're very cute. I like all of your holiday creations.

Happy Holidays!

Red Rose Alley said...

That little elf one is too cute. I'm so glad to know someone who loves elves as much as I do. I just bought one yesterday, and it was half price, couldn't resist. All the red in your home at Christmas is delightful. It looks very nice, Diane.
