Wplus9 Design Clips: Glittered Ornaments

Have you started Christmas decorating yet? Traditionally we wait until the day after Thanksgiving to put up our Christmas decor. However, this year we have company arriving on Friday. So I'm using that as an excuse to decorate early. Yeah, an extra week of Christmas!!

As promised, I'm back with the video on creating glittered ornaments I showed you in our Holiday Idea Mini-book. These are perfect for decorating those table top trees. And since we are using supplies that are most likely on hand and/or scraps, you can change it up each year to match your decor at little to no cost.

These look amazing in all colors, but there is just something about the white glittered tree that grabs me. You can watch below to see how easy these are to re-create.

I'm not usually a fan of working with glitter, but the Be Creative Tape Sheets along with the wide mouth on the Tim Holtz Glitter jar, make these ornaments surprisingly neat and painless. I ended up creating a variety of ornaments by just tweaking the design here and there to fill up one of my trees.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

  3. My four year old said to me this morning; "Let's watch a movie video" which means she wanted to watch some kind of tutorial (we do everything from cookies to cards to cakes to hairstyles around here!). I said "Oh, I know which one we can watch!" Now she wants to make these for her and her little sister's Christmas trees... "Oh we could make those!"

    If we ever do it, I'll link you up! ;)

    Thank you SO much for your sweet comment on my Cloud 9 post... you are so kind! I got my order, and I used ONE stamp in the flurries set to add a little something to a DT assignment, and now I can't WAIT to get crackin' and make something using the entire set. SO beautiful!!!
