Hello and WELCOME
to the Chattering Robin's blog.
Michelle here today, to share with you an easy and creative way to create
a Christmas ornament for your tree, that looks expensive,
but doesn't cost a fortune to make.
Here is what you will need:
Acrylic Ball Ornament
White Chunky Glitter
Robin's Nest Dew Drops
WATER DEW DROPS
PRECIOUS BOY DIAMOND DEW DROPS
Robin's Nest Diamond Dew Drops
Robin's Nest Winter Snowflakes Glitter Chipboard
Using and acetate sheet I had in my stash, I used a sharpie fine tip marker to trace 2 medium snowflakes on the surface.
I then cut as closely as possible to the trace lines, using small, sharp detailing scissors.
I chose an epoxy based clear glue to adhere the Dew Drops & Diamond Dew Drops to the shape of the snowflakes, and placed them using the Embellie Gellie Tool from ScraPerfect.
I then set them aside to allow them to set.
Next I used faux snow, the kind found in the Christmas Village accessory sections at stores, along with a funnel (VERY IMPORTANT as I first created quite a mess in trying to do so without one, lol) to fill the ornament.
I followed by adding chunky white glitter to add a glistening effect to the faux snow.
I beaded glue around the outside of the neck of the bauble, and placed the cap back into place.
After placing a small hole in one of the silver Snowflake Glittered Chipboard shapes, I weaved twine through the hole, wrapped the twine a few times around the neck of the bauble, and secured it with a bow a drop of glue.
Finishing touch, was to add the two acetate snowflakes to two sides of the bauble, creating a front and a back.
I allowed it to set up fro about 10 minutes each side.
And now all that is needed is a pretty ribbon to hang it from the tree!
So if you are looking for a perfect hostess gift or even a gift in general, taking one of these inexpensive acrylic baubles, and creating a fun holiday design, and using a filler of your choice, you can't go wrong using Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest.
