DIY Christmas Ornaments

Hi everyone, I am back with another fun project. I was at a craft fair a couple of weeks ago and found these clear acrylic Christmas ornaments and thought that it would be a fun crafty project to decorate them with moss and stamped images.  So I went outside to get some moss and dried it for a couple of days. I chose the adorable Waddle and Jingle digi stamps by Craftin Desert Divas to include in the ornaments. 


So I downsized the images so they would easily fit in the ornaments and because I wanted the images to be on both sides, I mirrored them and printed two versions for each ornament. Then I colored them with alcohol markers. Since the images were really small I only did some basic coloring without much shading (apart from the penguin's hat). After fuzzy cutting the images (or rather let them be fuzzy cut by my cutting machine) I adhered the original and mirrored images together. 



I cut the moss in place and glued each image on top using a hot glue gun. Then I cut easily place the moss and the image in my Christmas ornament. 



I really hope you like this idea and give it a try. These would also make perfect Christmas gifts. See you soon!
