~~~Vintage Jello Mold Ornaments~~~HOW TO

Do you ever wonder what to do with all the many designs of vintage jello molds when you see them at garage sales and flea markets?
I found these in an antique store while visiting family in Colorado Springs. I was only able to purchase four of them, but I had never seen the tree pattern with a tree in the center. I knew right away what I could create with them.

All I did was clean these up with lots of soap and hot water. You can use alcohol too, just to make sure you get all the oil and grease off the tin.
I then use a primer and paint.
Because I am not at the point of being able to paint my own roses, I use beautiful decals.
Modge Podge and glass glitter finish them off with a little sparkle.


You can then decide to decorate the tops or leave them the way they are.


So, the next time you see these little gems and wonder what to use them for, think of redoing them for someone special, or for yourself.
I think they would be great to decorate a package too. Have fun!!
These can be found on my website, Someplace In Thyme.

  4. These are so pretty! I have so many molds in so many different shapes. I had them out the other day looking at them. lol! I put them back.
    I have not blogged for almost a month. I have been busy with things and had critical computer issues. I finally just had to get a new one. I have promised myself that I am going to blog three times a week. We will see, sometimes it is just hard to come up with anything.......
