All three newest ornaments are perfect for your Spring decorations, or substitute the pastel buttons with red ones and add to your collection of Christmas tree ornaments! There is a beautiful hen looking forward to sweet Spring grasses and warm sunshine surrounded by pine wreath separated by tiny red buttons, and two cute tiny chicks in smaller tartlet tins! They are just adorable, surrounded by their own wreath with peach and yellow tiny buttons. Cathy used 3 shiny tart tins - 1 large, and 2 small, and these little farmyard babies will look so cute finished that way!
In olden days, you could always find a Tinsmith working to create candleholders, pails, and other essential tools. Cathy has used the same shiny metal tart tins to finish her ornaments so they look authentically rustic.
All Tartlet ornaments are quick and easy to stitch to keep or give as gifts. They are designed with gentle overdyed cottons and many different silks in soft shades. Stitch and finish in tartlet tins as Cathy Jean did, or use your own imagination!

Clip curving corners, and glue raw edges on back of mat board. Let dry for 2 - 4 hours. Glue a 1 1/2" x 1" x 3/4" piece of styrofoam in the bottom of the tin. Spread a thin layer of glue on the wrong side of matboard. Place stretched design glue side down inside the tart tin on top of the styrofoam. Let dry 2 - 4 hours. Glue ribbon to back of tart tin for the hanger.
