Every year I like to add a new ornament or two to my collection.
Do your Christmas ornaments tell a story?
I know mine do…..
Places I’ve been,
Handmade ones from the kids as they grown,
Gifts from Friends and Family.
Now that both of my children have moved out.
I thought I would create ornaments for them this year.
For my first ornament, I used
TCW481 ~ North Star
I applied Lime Green Shimmering Matte Artist Acrylic paint
onto a 20″ x 2.5″ piece of Canvas Corp Brands Canvas through the
When dry, I tore the canvas into three 3/4″ pieces.
I wrapped the pieces around a 3″ styrofoam ball
and adhered with flat head straight pins and Multi Medium.
I accented the ball with Canvas Corp Brands Red ~ Hemp Rope
and Natural ~ Jute,
Petaloo ~ White ~ Mini Burlap Blossoms and Velvet Leaves.
For the second ornament….
I pulled out a piece of French Script on Ivory Tissuestock
and applied Gold ~ Shimmering Matter Artist Acrylic Paint
through TCW482 ~ Vineyard template.
I then cut three 3/4″ x 12″ pieces of stenciled Tissuestock
and the same from a piece Canvas Corp Brands Ivory Burlap.
I also adhered the pieces with pins and Multi Medium.
I decorate with various gold trims.
And accented the ornament with 7gypsies Princesca Hardware.
Here is my third ornament.
This time I used
TCW 259 ~ Chickenwire Reversed
along with Red Wagon ~ Shimmering Matte Acrylic Paint
and Canvas Corp Brands Printed Canvas.
I tore three 3/4″ x 12 pieces of canvas
and cut three 3/4″ x 12″ pieces of Farmhouse Christmas paper.
Adhered the pieces to the 3″ styrofoam ball
and accented the ornament with Petaloo ~ Ivory Wild Sunflowers that I painted
with the Red Wagon paint..
I finished off my ornament with a piece of 7gypies Hardware.
Hope you enjoyed my Homemade Ornaments….
I know I sure had fun making them!!
