Christmas Ornaments - Day 1

I've been trying to make all different kinds of hybrid Christmas ornaments to help decorate our new house. Today's ornament features a great new kit call A Winter's Romance by the fabulous Kasia Designs at Shabby Pickle Designs.

I designed a small layout to fit in the square open space using Adobe Elements and then printed out on SU white cardstock. I cut out the square and adhered to the ornament by applying a thin layer of Mod Podge to both the ornament and the back side of the paper. I then smoothed out the paper and let it rest for a few days. To finish the project I simply put Mod Podge over the top of the paper (I did have some red in bleed but I think it makes it look a little more vintage.) Once dry I used a glue pen and some red glitter to finish off the sides. I tied on a irradescent bow and voila - a cute homemade ornament. It will look great on our red, light blue and silver tree.

Keep coming back. I'll have a new ornament for you each day until I run out of ideas. :)

That ornament is gorgeous! I just might have to try that. And I'm not crafty at all!
