Hello all, Nancy here. Welcome to this tutorial for stenciled rosette Christmas ornaments. Simple, but elegant, they make wonderful little gifts.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
12″ x 12″ decorative papers
quick dry adhesive
black gel pen
needle and thread
Cut decorative paper into two 2″ x 12″ strips for each rosette. Overlap ends of strips to create one 2″ x 24″ strip and secure with transparent tape. (Each rosette requires a 2″ x 24″ strip.) Place stencil on top and secure to work surface with masking tape . Apply gold gesso with foam spouncer through Sing Unto and Cactus stencils on lengths of paper strips.
Accordion fold each strip with 1/2″ folds.
Trim excess after folding is complete.
Overlap ends of each strip to form rosette and adhere with quick dry adhesive. They won’t lay flat at this stage, but rather resemble lampshades!
Press each rosette flat and add a dab of hot glue on the back to keep rosette shape formed.
Trace around each star with black gel pen. Adhere circle to cardboard with adhesive and then hot glue to the center of each rosette.
Apply a line of glitter glue around each circle.
With needle and thread make a simple hanger at the top of each rosette and hang on your Christmas tree!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and find the time to make an ornament or two for someone special or just for you!
