DIY Mini ornaments are darling for Christmas - Mod-hodgepodge rock
You’ll love this project, I turned to mini-plaques in DIY-mini ornaments for Christmas. Use Mod smorgasbord and holiday scrapbook paper.
I'm the only one who love brights this time of year? Colors are not typical? I know that my readers now, and they do it!!! Here’s what you’ll need to have these little babies.
DIY Mini ornaments
Collect These Supplies
FolkArt acrylic paint – Bright Baby Pink, Magenta, turquoise
FolkArt Extreme Glitter – hologram
Mod hodgepodge gloss
wood-minis – I have these forms from Michaels, were, respectively, $1
wood Form – I opted for a gingerbread man, $.29 at Michael's
Scrapbook-paper – I used Brenda Walton Peppermint Twist from K and co.
ornaments – all the goods from my stash: ribbon, self adhesive rhinestones, buttons, paper, flowers, small letters
pencil or pen
dial Spare plain paper
I always keep track of the forms for my first finished project. Why? Because, if the pencil/pen get marks on my surface, then I can paint over them. Start by tracking the tip of the minis on your spare sheets of plain paper. These will be your templates for cutting out the scrapbook papers later.
at this time you should. also wooden forms that you use (like my gingerbread man) track Aside these blades – they will cut, while the paint dries on your project.
Choose which papers you want to use from your pretty scrapbook papers – illustration from the paper to the mini and then choose the corresponding colors. Paint the minis accordingly. You have to paint several coats in all colors.
Let them dry. Don’t forget to paint the edges of the wood pieces you use! I painted my gingerbread man-Magenta on the edge of the fitting to the plaque it had happened.
I used FolkArt Extreme Glitter in hologram to *sparkle really* my plaques. I painted 3 coats around the edges of all my minis, let them dry about 15 minutes between layers. Let it dry after the last layer.
now you cut the paper(s). Grab your templates and set it down on the scrapbooking paper. Cut out the shapes of the plaques and the gingerbread man. The circular plaque is nice, because you can just use a circle-cutter.
If your plaques are dry, hold the paper pieces for the fronts of the plaques and the wood piece(s) with the Mod-hodgepodge. Try not to be all on the edges of the minis, because it makes the glitter too boring.
Completely smooth out all air bubbles and allow to dryleave on for 15 to 20 minutes.br> coat the fronts of the minis again with at least two layers of Mod-hodgepodge. Dry completelylet.br> Here’s the funny part – go crazy with embellishments! Check out my picture to see what I was doing. Use craft glue to glue the wood pieces to the bottom, then add embellishments as desired. You try to use items in your stash; it’s fun!
Allow the minis to dry for at least 24 hours prior to use.
