How to create an ornament.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I will show you how to create an ornament. You will need about 3 hours. This is not constant creating, but you need time for the paint to dry.

First, purchase a piece of wood and either drill a hole for the ribbon to go through or use a crop-a-dile to punch one. Grab some white acrylic paint and brush some on. Allow to dry. You will only need one thin coat. This is just so the surface does well with ink. If you don’t paint then the ink tends to bleed.

After the paint dries then you can stamp your background. Then you can attach your accent and embellishment.

Happy Crafting!

When the littlest piece is the most important.

Sometimes the littlest piece is the most important.  In this case that little scrap from yesterday’s post became the anchor point to tie on the wire accent or ornament.
