Artist Palette Ornaments

Colorful Designs for the Painter

This gorgeous Christmas ornament is just perfect for an artist! It's made from mouth blown glass and hand-painted in bright colors and glitter. This is a really colorful ornament that represents artistic inspiration and passion beautifully; it's a great choice for any art lover in your life.

This is another beautiful and unique palette design, handmade from various metals: nickel, copper, and brass. Best of all you can feel good about purchasing this piece as it's made in Chiang Mai, Thailand by workers earning a living wage, and comes with a gift box made from recycled materials. So it's a great gift for the artist who not only loves their work but wants to support crafts made all around the world, fairly and ethically.

Who doesn't love Snoopy! Here we have the beloved comic and cartoon character posing as an artist, in the adorable Hallmark collectible ornament. Definitely a cute addition to any art-themed ornament collection.

Who is your artist's favorite artist? Look for small photo-prints, postcards or maybe even mini-calendar images by that artist you can cut out, laminate, and turn into a personalized Christmas ornament! (You can also just search for images online to print out for yourself.)
