Simple Christmas Ornaments by Deanna M

To help get your holiday decorating started, today I have for you some ornaments for your tree. I found these wooden ornaments at a local store and picked up several. I started by painting them, the tree and wreath I painted green and the candy cane I painted red. The gingerbread man I did not paint.  I used my Crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the top of each ornament.

For the tree ornament, I covered it with some Flower Soft glue and generously covered it with some Pine Ultra Fine Flower Soft. I used some Gold Stickles on the star and then added a bunch of different sizes and colors of pearls to the tree for decorations. I added a piece of red and white striped twine to hang the tree and it was finished.

The wreath ornament was done similarly to the tree. However I used some Vintage Christmas Flower Soft on the wreath. I added some Candy Cane Stickles to the ribbon and finished it with some tiny red pearls that I applied in groups of three and again added the twine to hang the ornament from my tree.

First, if I had to do the candy cane again, I think I would paint it white instead of red. For the candy cane I used some Candy Cane stickles to the ribbon. I used the Christmas Red stickles to add some red stripes and used the Frosted Lace stickles for the white stripes. This was a hard one to get a good picture of because of all the sparkle. I added the twine to hang this ornament as well.

This little gingerbread man is probably my favorite. Instead of painting this guy I sprayed him with some Sugar Maple and Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist. He sure does sparkle. I then added some faux stitching with my gel pen. I stamped his face using the Snow Cuties Peachy Keen stamps. I added some little pink cheeks with a Copic marker. I gave him a little bow tie and used some black pearls as buttons.
