Sometimes I get an idea in my head that I execute on exactly as conceived. Other times, not so much. Such was the case with these.
For this project you will need:
Paper Mache Ornaments
Ink ( I used a pigment ink for deeper color)
I found these ornament shaped paper mache ornaments somewhere after Christmas last year. I initially planned to use Christmas scrapbook paper and Mod Podge to cover them but then I looked at my stamps and since I was going for a vintage shabby feel , just decided to stamp directly on the ornaments. I used stamps by Tim Holtz Visual Artistry collection with a French theme.
I randomly stamped a couple of the images all over my ornaments. No particular pattern in mind.
Using Mod Podge as my adhesive, I went around the edges and applied silver glitter.
Applied a scrap of washi tape to the top and then grabbed some self adhesive rhinestones and pearls from my stash ( a great way to use up strays) and just kind of went wherever.
My railings this year are very simple with some sheet music ornaments I made and others I bought on sale at PB after Christmas so these fit right in.
I like that they’re not perfect and remind me of something old and found.
