Skeleton Key Ornaments

I never realized how late Thanksgiving was this year.  Quite funny that our holiday decorations will be going up before turkey day.  I don't think that's ever happened before.  Anywho, I was tinkering with some skeleton keys over the weekend and decided to make some into Christmas ornaments.
I chose some festive ribbon to start.  Then one by one, I started adding little embellishments to each one.
I hand-stamped the Joyeux Noel onto plain white paper and distressed it a bit.  You can see some Scrabble tile "plaques" I also have in the works at the top of this photo.
For the other two keys, I used a random scrapbook paper number 3 that my Mom gave me a couple of weeks ago.  The 25 is a wood piece from the calendar I picked up over the weekend from a local church fair.  The December is also from that calendar stash.

I used Glue Dots to adhere each embellishment, so they can be pulled off down the road and the keys can be used for another project.

Cute idea! I've got a bunch of those PB keys I bought a few years ago. I had framed them at that time, but then took them apart. I should use them!
