I wanted to make Brandon a First Christmas Ornament
like I did Izabelle.
Hers was just last year and I couldn't remember how I did it!
Thank goodness I took a photo of it!
You can see that post here.
I gathered supplies and got busy.
I picked a wooden Snowflake from my stash
and gave it 2 coats of Robin's Egg Blue by Glidden
Once dry I attached a Dollar Tree Snowflake
I took a strip of blue crepe paper and folded it accordion style,
then connected both ends to make a round ruffled circle.
I brushed glue around the edges
and added blue glitter.
Gotta have sparkle!
I glued it to the top and let everything sit and dry thoroughly.
In the mean time I found a smaller Snowflake and covered it in silver glitter, setting it to the side for it to dry well also.
When all was dry I added the small silver as the last Snowflake.
Found font I liked, sized it, and printed it out.
Cut "V" shapes in each end to resemble a banner
and glued it to the top.
I embellished each "V" in the banner with a blue flat back stone.
I tied a bow with festive ribbon to add to the top.
Added the hook and c'est fini!
Izzy's from last year
Brandon's I did this year
Similar but not exactly the same,perfect!
