Hi everyone! Laura here with you today, and I hope
you are having a wonderful November! With all of the
early cold and snow here in the Midwest, it feels like
Christmas is already in the air! Do you make gifts,
home decor and ornaments for the holidays?
I've got a pretty ornament to share with you today
that you can make for your tree, or as a gift!
Clear Scraps has so many shaker shapes you can use to create
cards, ornaments, you name it! Only limit is your imagination!
Want to check out all the fun shapes? You can find them all
in the store HERE. For this ornament, I used the Circle Shaker.
The top frame is painted black, and I used a cute snowflake
pattern pretty paper on the base layer. Just trace it onto your
paper of choice, cut it out, and glue to the base piece....easy peasy!
I added the Clear Scraps Winter Sequin mix to the shaker, then
glued all the pieces together. But what is that piece on the top?
The ornament that is glued to the top of the shaker is the
Clear Scraps X-mas Swirl Bulb Chipboard Embellishment.
It's painted with red and gray acrylic paint, then after it
dried I went over the surface with a glitter glue to give it
some sparkle. A twine bow is a cute finishing touch, then
it's glued to the front surface of the shaker. I could have
left the back plain, but, I love to decorate so I added
a little simple Santa scene to the back of the ornament.
Just a couple of stickers, some foam tape and a few enamel dots.
And to create the hanger for the ornament, I glued twine around the
edge of the ornament leaving extra so I could knot it at the top
and create a loop to use as a hanger.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Stop back soon for more inspiration!
