They are basically fonts, but instead of letters they are drawings, shapes, doodles ect.
They can be used as regular characters in programs like Word, My Memories and Silhouette Studio!
That’s right, dingbats can provide thousands of shapes for you to use!
I used the font WW Flakes from Dafont.com for my Snowflake Chandelier.
You install them like a normal font. I walked you through the process in my post on adding unique fonts to your blog. Not ALL fonts will work in every program. I wish I could tell you why but I have no clue.
If you plan on working with a lot of dingbat fonts I highly recommend making an inventory sheet in Word or another program. I made a 4 column table like this:
You can highlight the column and change the whole think with one click. This font has the same characters for upper and lowercase, some have different characters. This font is Christmas Trees.
Here are a few other Dingbats you might enjoy:
I hope you have some fun playing around with dingbats!

- Hoop (I used 1/2 an embroidery hoop)
- Crochet Hook
- Thread (Use upholstery thread or even dental floss, regular thread will tangle too much and drive you nuts!)
- Super Glue

On Sunday I was featured on Roadkill Rescue for my yellow Buffet!
And I spent Monday at Urgent Care…
On the farm front, we had 2 turkeys hatch. I didn’t think either would survive so I never posted pictures. One made it (the one with deformed feet didn’t) and he’ll be getting his twist-tie leg hobbles off soon. He now lives with the three silkie chicks.
Mamma Duck still has all 14 ducklings. She let them paddle around in the water dish today and it was adorable!
Top link last week was from my blog buddy Veronica. >
She shared here method of cutting up a watermelon (for those of you who don’t see a watermelon as a single serving fruit…)
Our last link was this adorable Owl Cake from Jessica
It’s so cute I want to hang it up on my wall and never let anyone eat it!
Congrats! You are are top of the pecking order (trust me, it’s the best place to be!)
