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 :)
