Christmas Ornaments

I love making Christmas Ornaments. Working small, with cheerful Christmas papers and pretty, tiny little findings and lots of glitter is so dang fun. Here are four house-shaped (are you surprised?) Santa themed Christmas Ornaments.

I used wooden blanks that I cut from a template I drew, but you could easily use heavy chipboard instead of wood. I also used bits and pieces of scrap paper left over from other projects...mostly G45 Christmas papers, but any bright, cheerful papers will work!

I really like these cabochon medallions....the glass cabs make the images appear larger and they look great and add a little bit more gleam to the ornaments.

I added some litle dots with a black marker around the corners and edges of things to add a bit of richness and detail.

And a little extra kitsch....some quick ornaments I made using 3x3 canvas (you could very easily use chipboard), some adorable papers from the Farmhouse Kitchen Collection and a little mini red pom pom fringe. I really love the impact black and white make especially with a little pop of Christmas color!
