Bo Bunny | Handmade Christmas Ornaments

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!

  5. Such fabulous ornaments. I'm making a keepsake ornament for each of our children for Christmas this year, but not of paper. I learned to crochet snowflakes for a page I just finished and am making more for ornaments. I'm experimenting with stiffening one this afternoon. :-) ~ Blessings, Tracey
