Snowflake Christmas Tree Ornament

I love creating handmade ornaments to give as hostess gifts, use in my own home, or top off a pretty package!  Today I’m going to show you a really fun ornament that you can create at home!

 

Supplies:

 

 

To begin, we are going to create a mold.  Following the instructions on the mold putty, combine the two parts and mix.  Press into a disk and then press the acrylic stamp of your choice into the mold.  Allow to set completely.

 

 

After about 15 minutes the mold will be ready.  Remove the stamp from the mold.   It should look something like this.

 

 

Create a ball with the clay and press it into the mold making the back as flat as you can.  Be sure to press evenly with enough pressure for the clay to pick up the pattern in the mold.  Remove the molded clay from the mold and allow to dry completely.

 

 

Once the clay portion has dried, mist the front with the chalk Glimmer mist and allow to dry.  Turn over and adhere the ruffled ribbon to the back of the ornament.

 

 

Using a small dab of glue, attach the metallic string to the back to serve as the ornament hanger.  I LOVE this stuff!  It is just so sparkly and fabulous!

 

 

Now you are going to create the tag for the front.  Cut a piece of Core’dinations Whitewash cardstock to 1 ¼ inches.  Punch a hole in the end and set eyelet in place.  Stamp ‘Wish’ on tag.  Tie with burlap string to accent and glue to the front of the ornament.

 

 

Punch an ornament shape (you can use a circle if you don’t have an ornament punch) and adhere to the back of the ornament.  This is a great place to sign your work!

 

 

I really wish you could see how pretty the shimmer from the Glimmer Mist is ,but my camera just couldn’t quite capture it!  Now you can attach your ornament to a gift, a bottle of wine, or hang on your tree!  Merry Christmas!

    Very pretty. I love making molds that can be reused, but I hadn’t thought of using it for ornaments like this. Very pretty indeed!
