When my children were small
I used to tell them
Each year I set out to
MAKE THE MAGIC
And so .....
this year will be no different.
I will show you what I have been working on
Today I am going to show you how to make
These are a fun easy project
I make several of these every year
to give as gifts
First gather your supplies
WHITE satin christmas balls, white fur boa, craft ribbon ( I used SILVER), sprigs of holly, berries, stylus, glue gun, pink powder blush, Americana Acrylic Sealer/ Finisher Matte Spray
Lamp Black, Burnt Orange, Heritage Brick, Snow White
I free hand painted the faces on but you can lightly sketch them on with a pencil
Base the eyes using Lamp Black, when dry add the highlights with Snow White.
Add the eyebrows and lashes with Lamp Black
Paint the nose using Burnt Orange, shade with Heritage Brick, when dry add some
snow to the top of the nose with Snow White.
Dot the mouth on using your stylus and Lamp Black. When dry add a highlight to the Lamp Black mouth dots with Snow White
I add "color " to the cheeks using powered blush and a q-tip
When dry LIGHTLY spray your ornaments
Americana Acrylic Sealer/ Finisher Matte Spray
Tip when spraying!!!
*** Do not spray directly ON your ormnaments....rather spray into the air OVER them and let the midst fall on your ornaments ***
Cut a small piece of ribbon for hanging and thread thru the top of ornament.
Use your glue gun to line glue around the top of the ornament hanger immediately add a small piece of white boa all around the top of the silver hanger.
I added a
GLITTERED HOLLY LEAF
to my snow ladies hair
I always look for unusual boxes and wrappings every year for my gifts
to make them look special
