From 1974: Easy-to-Finish Decorations You’ll Enjoy for Many Christmases to Come

What a happy, colorful Christmas tree you’ll have this season if it’s gaily trimmed with these old-style wood ornaments you paint yourself.

In the 32-piece “Storybook” set you’ll meet all your childhood favorites, the Three Bears, Hickory-Dickery-Dock and many others.

The largest ornament is 5-1/2″ high. The miniature “Playtime” set has the Little Drummer Boy, Jack-in-the-box and 22 more, 1-1/2 to 3-1/4″ high.

Both kits die-cut from imported Philippine mahogany with numbered guidelines on front and back, with non-toxic, fast drying acrylic paints, brush, sandpaper, cord hangers and instructions. A joyful pre-holiday family project.

PLEASE NOTE: These ornaments are from the seventies. For modern-day ornaments you can paint, have a look here!

  1. I Want to order your vintage to paint ornaments but can’t get to the shoppi g cart. My email had changed and I don ‘t know my password. Is there a phone number I can call to order them. I also can not get back to the email site.

    1. I’m so sorry for the confusion! We are a vintage site, and present a lot of ads from the past — like this one from 1974. It’s not a current offer or anything we have available, unfortunately, but is here for its nostalgia value (and in case anyone wants to try to use the old-fashioned ornament photos to create some of their own). Thank you so much for visiting, and I hope you can find what you’re looking for!

    2. Were you able to find the site or a way to order the vintage wooden Christmas ornaments? We have them from when I was little but would love to do them with my kids and my mom!

  2. My mom painted these ornaments for everyone on both sides of her family, every Christmas for around ten years. Hundreds of them. Oddly I can only find two of mine and would love to carry on the tradition with mine. Can’t find them anywhere. Mom ordered them from JC Penneys or sears

  3. I would like to purchase both sets. I made these in the 70s & I LOVE THEM! I woul love to have more yo give to my kids. Please get back yo me! Thank you!
