Hi all! So who is in the Christmas spirit yet? I sure hope you are! I am trying my best, but I am finding it a little difficult this year since we are getting ready to move again. I will not be putting up a Christmas tree or decorations this year and these always help me get into the holiday spirit. With that option gone, I had to come up with something else this year. My solution was to create some Christmas ornaments and cards. One of the projects I created recently was a handmade Christmas ornament using the gorgeous Bo Bunny Rejoice collection!
The base of the ornament is a paper mache base that I have had in my stash for a couple years. I covered it with a scrap of patterned paper. I then cut a small strip to cover the edge and then added strips of punched paper to create the "lace" border. I simply glued this to the back side of the ornament and as I turned a corner I lightly misted the paper with water and folded the paper.
I embellished the front using a layered chipboard sticker from the Rejoice collection and some Jewels. I added some gold glitter glue around the outside edge of the sticker for a bit more bling. Then I lightly misted the entire piece with gold Glimmer Mist.
I actually LOVE to make ornaments...they are like little mini altered projects!!! Do you or have you ever made Christmas ornaments? If not, I highly recommend giving it a try! And if you are looking for more inspiration, check out the Bo Bunny blog today!
