Custom Hand-Painted Personalized Christmas Ornaments

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Brannon Cullum Addison | 1 Comment

I'm very excited to offer a new custom product this holiday season - hand-painted personalized Christmas ornaments! These are special order/offline items, so you will need to contact me at hello{at} to receive an order form. 

Here's a rundown on all of the details you need to know!

  • Ornaments are made of porcelain, are 0.25” thick, and come tied with a red satin ribbon for hanging. Each ornament is approximately 3.5" - 4" wide.
  • You can choose from three shapes - circle, tree, or star.
  • You can choose from a variety of design styles: red and green holly, snowflakes (red, green, or a combination), dots (red, green, gold, or a combination)
  • Can be personalized with a name or initials. We highly recommend using a nickname or initials if the name is quite long (+7 letters). Otherwise, it will not fit!
  • We are unable to offer additional custom designs at this time. 
  • Ornaments are $15.00 each, plus $5.00 shipping. Sales tax will be applied to all orders shipping in Texas.
  • Orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail with tracking and insurance. Orders are carefully wrapped in packing material. 
  • Orders typically ship within 14 days of payment. 

Contact me at hello{at} if you have any questions or are ready to place an order!
