Hello there Positively Splendid Fans, Jen here from Craft-O-Maniac and I am just filled with “JOY” to be apart of Amy’s Swell Noel! LOVE IT!
“Today I am sharing some simple DIY Ornaments.”
I used a Martha Stewart stencil, paint, some modpodge, some glitter and some un-finished wood stars I picked up at JoAnn’s. I first started by painting the stars white, and then added some modpodge around the outer star and then dropped a bunch of sparkles all the way around it. I then used my Martha Stewart stencil and stenciled on Merry Christmas. For the other star I painted it white and then used some brown paint that I brushed on around the sides. I brushed on modpodge and then sprinkled over the modpodge some snowy flecked white glitter. To finish the star ornaments I hot glued on some jute string for hanging.
There were super simple and can be personalized with initials or names or nothing at all. They would make great gifts, or perfect additions to your tree.
I sure love to create and I also love meeting new people, I would love to meet some of you. Come and visit me at Craft-O-Maniac, there is much inspiration for me to share with all of you. Plus I love to create a bunch more during the holidays. Here are some other DIY Ornaments I made with my mom.Thank you so much Amy for this SUPER FUN EVENT.HAPPY HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL!hugs, jen-COM
