So my family and I have decided to try do something creative each day this holiday season. It’s a chance to just have a little fun and connect in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle. I created this little ornament that is super quick and easy to put together. My little one loves to paint on the glue and glitter each piece. And I finish them off with a little embellishment.
And here are some variations.
Begin by cutting out the ornament. I used my Sizzix and cut the blanks from mat board for extra sturdiness. You could also cut cardstock by hand and adhere a few layers together for added stiffness.
Working on one side, brush adhesive on the surface of the ornament. While still wet, sprinkle with the glitter flakes. Shake off the excess glitter and repeat with the other side.
Gather the crepe paper into a small rosette and staple to secure. Remove the foam adhesive from the back of the button (if using Jenni Bowlin) and glue the button to the center of the rosette with hot glue. Glue the rosette to the top of the ornament.
- Whenever I make ornaments and other home decor items, I try to use matboard or chipboard so that the shape is really stiff.
- Use colored mat board and you won’t have to paint, saving on time.. and clean up.
