Now onto my project for the day.  I decided to try my hand at a couple of ornaments.  Well, it didn't go so well.  I found several ideas on Pinterest, and was so excited to try them.  The first one was not as easy as it looked, and well, it probably was this crafter's fault.   The first one used Tulip soft fabric paint, and I thought at first I missed a step, but it turns out I was supposed to shake it from side to side to get it to splatter.  Instead, I tried to swirl it around and upside down with no success.  It didnt seem to want to move when I poured the paint into it and I just kept pouring more in when they said a little would be sufficient.  So here is how my ornament turned out.  It may be the colors I chose to put together, but in my mind Pink and Purple go well together(my wedding colors).  And my assistant, our cat Dixie was no help during this process as she was continually trying to steal my flowers, snowflakes and snowballs for the next ornaments. Here is a link to the site showing how its suppose to look and be done.  Obviously I have done something wrong.  http://www.ilovetocreateblog.blogspot.com/2013/11/neon-marble-paint-ornaments.html

My next two ornaments were photo ornaments.  They turned out much better.

I filled the clear ornament with a little snow and a pink fern leaf.  Cut and mounted my picture on scrapbook paper, rolled it and stuck it into the ornament.  Using a pencil to unroll it and tweezers to place it.  Then I added some pink flowers and little pink hearts.  I put ribbon around the top and hot glue a little flower to the top.

My next ornament i did in the same manner, only difference, it was a pancake shaped ornament.

Wow, your ornaments are beautiful.

Mary Holshouser said...

The ornaments are so pretty.
I've never tried to "stuff" an ornament but think I might
give it a try. Can't do anymore than get frustrated
and quit.
thanks for sharing a great idea.

Pinterest always makes everything look so easy...it still looks fine, more of a tie died effect. The picture ornaments look wonderful.

Ladybug said...

I think your ornament looks like a "tie dyed" one ---- very purty!!! Your "stuffed one" is a treasure!! TFS! :-)
