Bee Ornaments

One of my favorite traditions tied to being a Weddingbee blogger is the annual exchange of ornaments during the holidays!

I love my little elephant ornaments from the past two years and can't wait to see what comes my way this year!

2011 Ornament from Mrs. Tulip

My draw this year was Mrs. Buffalo and I had a great time utilizing Etsy as well as some handcrafting skills to produce her first official bee ornament.

I ordered the Buffalo felt ornament from Wendi who owns the Enchanted Forest Crafts Etsy shop.  I created the little flower from felt, crystals and glue to resemble the bee moniker.  I was in the mood for a little more crafting, so I created a little bee ornament out of polymer clay (similar to what I used last year to make our wedding cake ornament) to go with the buffalo.

Do you buy or make any special ornaments to add to your Christmas tree?


  1. mrs. buffalo is going to love those!

  2. How adorable! I love the little bee too!

  3. So cute! Buffalo will love her ornaments!

  4. Aww, those little elephants are adorable, and I LOVE Mrs. Buffalo's! I'm bummed that I was introduced just a LITTLE too late to get to participate this year, but I'm sure I'l jump in on the fun next year! :D

  5. Thanks everyone! The Etsy seller did a great job and I love adding the little details. Buffalo did let me know that she loved it :)

  6. These are all so cute, I can't wait to see your new ornament addition! Bee ornament season is always one of my favorite times of the year!
