Christmas in July - Fence Ornaments

Hi everyone, and welcome to Christmas in July!!

Today I have created these super cute and very easy Christmas ornaments.

I have used the Fence Chipboard Embellishments to create the ornaments.  They turned out amazing.

I wanted to show that these can be used in another way, not just as an embellishment for a layout or card.

So lets get started!!

First I painted each of the pieces with a brown acrylic paint.

I then painted it with some crackle medium.  Letting each layer dry before adding the next layer. 

I wanted a really nice crack so I made sure to apply the crackle medium really thick.

Once those two layers were dry, I then painted them with ivory acrylic paint.  I brushed it on very evenly in one coat. 

Don't go back over to add more or it won't crack.

Once each of the pieces were dry, I distressed them with walnut stain distress ink. 

Highlighting all those nice cracks.  I wanted them to almost look like weathered wood.

I punched holes and added some twine as a hanger.

I added flowers from my stash and then used some nice glitter to give it a sparkle.

I hope you give these a try.

They will look amazing on the Christmas tree this year!!

Thanks Kim :)
