Glitter Fun Ornament Tutorial

Standard

Santa Glitter Ornament

I had some fun yesterday playing with glitter and here is the result!  I think these glitter ornaments are so cute and they are so easy and fun to make.  I bought my large clear glass ornaments at Michael’s, 4 to a pack for $4.49.  And I am happy to say I actually used a coupon, now that I have the coupons on my phone, I always have one!  I added a little grosgrain ribbon and ribbon slider to make this one a santa.  These ornaments are really easy to make, so if you have never made one of these, you should give it a try!

Materials List

Clear ornament, can be glass or acrylic

Floor Wax, I used Pledge Future Shine.  You can use the wood or tile and vinyl finish, just make sure it is a finish, not a cleaner.

Glitter, I used ultra-fine

Stampin’ Up! 1/4 inch Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon

Stampin’ Up! Ribbon Slider (I only had a white one on hand, a gold or bronze one that is not a flower would probably look better!)

Directions

1.  Remove the hanger cap from the ornament, add a little of the floor wax and swirl to coat the entire inside of the ornament.  Try not to get too many bubbles, because this can leave a bare spot.  Drain the excess back into the bottle.

2.  Add the glitter.  I used a small funnel which I wiped with a dryer sheet to keep the glitter from sticking.  You can also use a paper funnel.  Gently turn the glitter inside the ornament to coat the inside, you may need to add more glitter.  Empty the excess glitter back into the container.

3.  Decorate as desired or leave them as is, they are gorgeous even without any decoration!  Let the ornament dry overnight before inserting the hanger back in and you are done.  See, I told you it was easy!

Halloween Lantern

Halloween Lantern

 

I am on a Halloween roll!  I had this lantern template in my stash and decided to recreate it in Silhouettes Studio.  I added the cobweb, spider and spooky cat to make it a Halloween Lantern.  I think I will make a few more of these to line my walkway on Halloween, just need to add a little orange tissue paper and some battery-powered tea lights!

Halloween Apothecary Jar

Standard

Halloween Apothecary Jar

Halloween Apothecary Jar Top

I love this cute apothecary jar cut file from the SVG cuts set Toil and Trouble and the tall version is the perfect size to hold two layers of Smarties, my daughter’s favorite candy!  I decided to make it out of acetate so that she could see the candy inside.  It went together pretty easily, I just hate using glue because I am so messy!  The tabs on the lid are pretty small and you shape it as you go, so there was no way to use my ATG gun, so I had to use my Stampin’ Up! 2-Way Glue.  I am going to make another one for my son also.  He is not a big candy eater, so I’m not sure what I will put in it, but it is just too cute not to make him one!

Bundle Up! Color Challenge Card

Wow, today’s Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge was a challenge with a capital C!  CC385 Real Wonder IslandReal Red, Wisteria Wonder and Island Indigo was a real doozy!  The dessert option was a summer garden, but I just wasn’t seeing it.  As a matter of fact, these colors said winter to me.  They reminded me of a scarf set my son had when he was a toddler, so I went with that theme.  For my card, I used mittens and scarf by Lettering Delights and a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  The sentiment is part of a stamp by Hero Arts.

Honeycomb Ornament, 19/100

Today’s Sketch Challenge SC387 on Splitcoaststampers was a tough one for me, I am so not a swirly girl!  I was wracking my brain trying to think of what I could use for a swirl and then I remembered the swirl in Stampin’ Up Ocean Commotion.  I also wanted to try the Honeycomb Shapes  technique featured in this week’s Wednesday Tutorial, so I combined the two on this Christmas card. I love to use nontraditional colors on my Christmas cards.  Being in South Florida, I try to infuse a bit of tropical warmth in my Christmas cards, so I chose Bermuda Bay for my card base and mat.  I stamped with VersaMark and embossed the swirl and sentiment with Gold embossing powder.  I punched 24 ornaments from an old DCWV Winter Mat Stack.  I used Taken with Teal to ink the edges of my punches.  Although the tutorial showed to ink the edges after the shapes were glued together, I found it much easier to do before hand.  The only thing I would have done differently is to ink the top part of the ornaments in gold.  I assembled my punches in groups of 6 and then glued the four stacks together.  I found that by making smaller stacks, it was easier to keep the shapes from shifting out of alignment.  This is a fun technique and a great way to extend the use of your paper punches!
