Rustic Star Christmas Ornament

Hey everybody! Leslie here, sharing a rustic star ornament which is something a little different than what I typically create. I love all things rustic and vintage (maybe because I'm vintage, lol), so when I saw the Mini Shaker Star and 4x6 Stars Stencil, I knew immediately what direction to go!


I started by swiping Memento Rich Cocoa ink and Memento Espresso Truffle ink in a downward motion onto the chipboard back of the Mini Shaker Star. I applied transfer gel with a spatula over the 4x6 Stars Stencil onto the chipboard back, let it dry, and pressed a piece of gold foil onto it with a brayer. Next, I painted the front chipboard form of the with a gold paint pen and set it aside to dry. I stamped and heat embossed the gift image, cut it with the coordinating die, and adhered it slightly off-kilter but mostly centered on the chipboard back. 


Working from the bottom up, I adhered the next two chipboard forms and punched a hole through the three layers. I adhered the acrylic divider (with the protective film removed from both sides) to the front chipboard form, punched a hole through those two layers, and adhered them to the bottom part of the star. I clamped the star for about 10-15 minutes to be sure the layers adhered well, and then ran the gold paint pen around the outside edges.


Once the gold paint was completely dry, I lightly sanded it and wiped brown dye ink on it with my finger tip to add to the rustic look. I threaded jute rope through the hole at the top for the hanger, catching a piece of gold cording in it, and tied two knots. I tied rusted jingle bells to the end of the gold cording which completed the project.
