It’s the Modern Kiddo ornament party! Featuring Danielle of kitschy digitals!!

Hello friends! EEK! We are sooooo close to Christmas!! I hope you are enjoying our little Modern Kiddo ornament party, I know I am!! So far we’ve had two fabulous ornaments from two extremely talented friends of the kiddo, Kristin (of klt:works) and Pilgrim (of draw*pilgrim). If you are a long time reader you know how much I love both of those ladies and I was so honored they took part in our Ornament Party! You can find their adorable creations here and here.

Today’s ornament comes to us from another one of my all-time favorites— the very crafty Danielle Thompson. She never ceases to amaze me with her colorful, whimsical style and wait til you see what she has come up with. All I can say is, “Oh my.”


HOW CUTE ARE THESE LITTLE WEE MID-CENTURY HOUSES??? I’m dying. The little pointy trees out front are so awesome. With their angular little roof tops, they remind me of those vintage Putz village cardboard houses…Danielle actually did a wonderful post on them recently which you can check out over at her terrific blog Thompson Family Life. (Seriously, it’s filled with spectacular eye candy!)

Danielle has kindly made TWO versions of this ornament….one in color and a special one in black & white that your kiddos can color in themselves. Simply print out on a thicker cardstock paper, use a small hole punch at the top and string with bakers twine or a ribbon. I think the full-color versions are especially fantastic. Danielle recommends using the teensiest of white pom poms and some fine, sparkly glitter to embellish:

If you can’t find the mini poms, no worries….the ornaments look just as lovely without them!

I’m in lerrrrve!!! I think these are just so cool. Danielle, how do you do it?
