Make a “Wish”

Transform a tart pan!  Using silver glass glitter, silver tinsel garland, and a vintage ballerina, this oval tart pan becomes a sparkly shadow box ornament.  And, it doesn’t take long at all to assemble.

Applying real glass glitter to the fluting of the tart pan adds beautiful texture and has the added bonus of tarnishing over time. Tinsel garland was added around the bottom of the pan’s edge to create the magical background for the vintage ballerina, which was glued to the bottom of the pan. A “Wish” banner stamped on ivory paper, and folded to add dimension tops the ornament off.

This easy to make, and totally vintage shadow box would look beautiful decorating a gift box. Or, glue a magnet to the back, and attach to the fridge. Or, glue a loop on the back and hang on your Christmas tree…so many possibilities! Visit our RECIPE SECTION  for this printable recipe card.

Happy Creating!

    What a perfectly cute idea! I have tons Of vintage tart tins, just dying to be repurposed in a fabulous way, and your ballerina tart is definitely one of them! Love how you covered the edges in the glitter. The perfect background for the dainty ballerina. TFS!!!
