Swing Dancers Ornament

Swing Dancing Elves Christmas Ornament
Holiday Ornament 2018

Christmas ornaments have become an annual artistic activity. Little sculptures (usually kinetic) that often represent some part of life or type of artwork from the year prior.

We have been learning to swing dance and that is why the dance design.

After some sketching and experimenting, some balancing and bending, this swinging dancing mobile ornament emerged.

5/14 Years of Christmas Gift Art. Glass Ball Mobile Ornament

One of the favorite Christmas gift art ornaments was this mobile in a clear glass ball.

Wire and snowflake charms with a Christmas tree at the bottom make up the mobile part.

Glitter glued to the glass ball with silver ribbon to hang it from and there you have it!

Everyone loved it! But, mailing this object failed a few times.

The fourth year (? the order of years 4-9 is still being debated!) of making Christmas artwork was this attempt at a reindeer. It is a kinetic hanging ornament that articulates in three places giving its legs, body and head independent motion.

The antlers do give it a moose-like appearance so we like to call it a reinmoose!
