My projects for today are wooden ornaments and wooden frames.
I painted each wooden frame.  Then I trace the frame shape on to the paper I wanted to decopauge on to the front.  Cut it out and decoupaged it on to the frame.  After it dried, I took some paint and light edged around the paper and frame edges to make it look distressed.  Added some flower/button embellies.

The wooden ornaments I purchased at Joanns. For the angel, I used paint markers.  Then I used some glitter glue on the crown, collar and wand. 

For the wood crosses, I painted them a solid color.  After they dried, I fill the inside with colored beads in glue.  I then added some ribbon, pearls and a flower.

Thanks for hopping with us.  I have some little blog candy for some lucky hopper,  a small winter album kit.  Just be a follower and leave a comment each day.  

Now head on over to Lynda to see what beautiful ideas she has for you.
