It's almost that Ho, Ho, Ho time and today's project is a terrific way to decorate for the occasion!
I found this photo on my friend Darla Eigenschink's Facebook page…aren't these Santa ornaments THE BEST?! She even brought me one of my very own ornaments at our Too Cool Demo Meeting on Monday night!
And, they are easy to make, too!
Glittering The Ornament: Use Riding Hood Red Re-Inkers to coat the inside of the plastic or glass ornaments. Then, while the ink is still wet, add Fine Red Glitter and shake it well until the inside is completely covered. Dump out the excess glitter.
Decorating The Ornament: Darla used 3/8" Black Grosgrain Ribbon, which Stampin' Up! doesn't carry. But you could substitute 1/4" Black Grosgrain (wrapped around twice to make it wider), or try the 5/8" Black Satin Ribbon. Use Glue Dots to hold ribbon on, or hot glue always works, too.
The buckle is made from Rhinestone Jewels. Darla noted that she had tried self-adhering rhinestones that were from "other stores," but those usually had too much adhesive on them that had to be trimmed off before applying. I've had problems like that with other rhinestones, as well. Stampin' Up! Rhinestones are stuck individually in the package, so you can lift them off one at a time for easy placement and no glue trimming!
You can find the supplies you need for this project (except the ornament that you can find at your local craft store) at my Online Store!
Thanks so much for sharing your project, Darla! Too Cool!
