Jello Mold & Tart Tin Christmas Ornaments

I love repurposing things into Christmas ornaments and today I’m sharing how I used these some vintage jello molds and tart tins to do just that.

And here’s what I did with the jello molds from this thrifted finds post.

I drilled two holes into each mold and tart tin using a small metal drill bit.

Strung each with some jute twine.

When I had all the molds and tart tins drilled and strung I started playing with these vintage plastic reflectors from this thrifted finds post.

into these.

I added vintage glass ball ornaments to the middle of two of the reflectors, and the other four have salvaged rhinestones from vintage broken brooches as their centres. All were glued in place using Marine GOOP adhesive.
