well, it's that time again - time to make some Christmas ornaments! I have been making ornaments for myself or as gifts for about 25 years! wow, that's more than I was going to admit. Anyway, I like to have a paper mache or wood base for my ornaments, and there usually must be some kind of sparkle. These ornaments are for a problem tree that I have. One of our trees is a Star Trek ornament tree and although the ornaments are REALLY cool and some of them do really cool things, its a dark drab tree. I needed to add some Christmas themed brightly colored ornaments so I chose the colors Aqua/teal, red, green, and Silver and there will be alot of stars.
This first ornament is all from the Mod Stack by Die Cuts With a View, with the exception of the little Santa's face which is from Altered Pages
The second is a wooden star ornament using the Doodlin Around Stack by Die Cuts with a View along with buttons by Die Cuts With a View.
Next I just had to try one of those button ornaments. I LOVE the way it sparkles on the tree but it uses alot of buttons and I just do not have enough teal buttons. I also added some sequins to fill in gaps.
Next is a paper mache star ornament using some Making Memories papers and a fluffy silver pipe cleaner.
