I started making yule/christmas ornaments early this year (2 weeks ago) and before I stated, I decided to go with a ethnic theme, inspired by "One Thousand and One Nights".
But one of the larger ornaments I made, a winged heart, ended up being quite steampunk in style.
Not that I'm going to complain, I love anything steamy, but it was not the look I was going for.
The heart was a store bought paper mache figure, painted antique gold and decorated with a metal finding, fake stone and angel wings I found at the local thrift store.
I pinned the wings to the back of the heart with push pins decorated to look like brass rivets.
I like how it ended up like and it has really inspired me to make more steampunk yule ornaments in the future.
