Primitive Country Folk Art Ornaments: Apples and Watermelon Slices
Nothing says primitive country folk art quite like fruit ornaments. And for a limited time we have watermelon slices and apples.
These watermelon slices are in a set of 3. They are hand made with a gingham fabric and “grunged” in my special solution that gives them an old primitive look and smell. They are approximately 5 inches by 5 inches. Also included is a hang tag that has that old primitive look and reads “Watermelon”.
These apples look good enough to eat! They are also in a set of 3. They are hand painted and grunged. Each apple has a real twig as a stem. Each also has a hand painted leaf and a rusty bell attached. There is one hand made primitive tag for the set that reads “Apples”. The apples are about 3 1/2 inches wide by about 5 inches tall. These would look very prim and country in an old wooden bowl.
Primitive Country Folk Art Ornaments: Animals
Another thing that makes for very nice primitive country folk art ornaments are animals. And I have a few, but we will look at sheep, bears and eagles. (Some of my personal favorites).
These were designed and hand made by me. Again, it is a set of 3. They are hand painted on both sides. These prim sheep are about 5 1/2 inches by 4 inches. They were made with a real nice looking osnaburg fabric, grunged and baked. And the set comes with a grunged hang tag that reads “Prim Sheep”.
How about throwing a little “Americana” into the mix. This majestic Eagle will do the trick! These are sold individually. There are many possibilities for decorating with these primitive eagles. They are made with a muslin fabric that is grunged and hand painted. Each eagle is about 6 1/2 inches tall. These would be nice for hanging on your prim tree, placing in an old bowl, or whatever else your primitive mind can come up with! And they look good all year long.
I have saved the best for last. These bears are as cute as a primitive button! This is a set of 2. The larger bear is about 7 inches tall by 4 1/4 inches wide and the smaller bear is about 4 2/3 inches tall by 3 inches wide. These bears have been hand painted and lightly sanded to give them that “vintage” look. They are grunged and smell very nice. They have button eyes, a fabric face, and hand stitching for the nose. Each bear has a rusty safety pin holding a rusty bell on. Also included is a grungy hand tag that reads “Beware of Bears”. They are adorable.
So there you have it. A very good start if you are looking for primitive country folk art ornaments. And if you did not find it here check out the other items in my eBay Store at: Choose Moose Primitive Designs.
