Quick and Simple Christmas Ornament

Hello!  Lisa here today with a quick and easy Christmas Ornament that could also double as a gift tag!  As the Holidays are upon us we often find ourselves busy, spread out, and trying to squeeze in some last minute projects, so this will be something you can make in a matter of minutes as well as mass duplicate and still have fun...


Supplies Used:



To create this ornament I started with the base tree (plain tree piccolo accent) and embossed it in Mossy Glen Enamel Powder.  I repeated this step for extra coverage.  I then took the Lattice Christmas tree and embossed this in Victorian Bronze.  I adhered the two together using Glastique in gloss finish.  A tip when doing this to make sure the adhesion is tight use something with a little bit of weight to lay ontop of them for at least 5 minutes.  You can then adhere rhinestones, glitter or whatever you would like.  To add ribbon I simply punch a hole through the plain tree accent and tied my elastic cord through here.

Hope this has you inspired to look at your accents in new ways!  PS - Don't forget to join us in our Christmas Spirit Challenge!  All products are welcome, but we love to see you use our SS and Piccolo Products so you will earn an extra entry if you do!

Happy Crafting!
Lisa
