12 days of Christmas Bloghop- day 10

WOW!  It doesn't feel like 10 days in.  Speaking of, 10 days and still no card- MAN am I proud of myself!!

Today's little project is something fairly simple!  Ornaments!

Here's what you need:
square ornaments (hobby lobby)
etching cream
martha stewart pine branch punch and green cardstock
Lyrical Letters Cricut cart.

etch the glass (manufacturer's directions) and rinse.  (that's why you see the water drops inside the bottles.)  pat off and cut out the vinyl at 1 1/4" (both things)  apply with transfer tape if needed. punch out 3 branches for each ornament and make a bow out of twine- attach with tacky glue.  tada!  15 minute ornaments!

How easy was that?

What is your favorite ornament?  It could be a memorable one from childhood, it could be one you picked up last year- mine is my daughter's 1st Christmas ornament.  Cut porcelain in the shape of a lace rattle. it makes me think about her every time I see it.

Here's the lineup:

  4. Wow..... they are beautiful.... I love them... I want some :)

  5. I love your etched ornaments! Great idea and one I have never done! Have to try it! My fav' ornament is the Hallmark one of 2 mice playing a video game on a tv and has figures that move. It reminds me of my 2 sons when they were boys and like that.

  6. Before I comment on your project I have to say this:- You, my dear, totally amaze me. How on earth do you find the time to create such beautiful projects when you have 5 kids to take care of??? I'm just blown away by it all.

    Now, your project:- another gorgeous one. Love the square ornaments and how you decorated them. You have inspired me to try doing some etching. I've always been intimidated by it. TFS! :-)

    My fav. all-time ornament is an angel ---- depicting our angel sent to us from heaven. We only have one child and it took us 10 years to get her. When she was born, I created an "angel tree" for her. Every year, there would be another angel added to it. :-)

  7. I love these square ornaments!!! WOW!!! Great Job!! I really need to get on the stick and create some of these guys!! LOL you did fantastic! loves-Scrappin Madge
