Hi there! Today is again time to share another altered Christmas tree bauble! This is ornament number three:
Starting point again the same – first cover the bauble with white gesso and let dry.
Then take a piece of patterned paper and wrip it into small pieces. I used the Red & White Dot Reverse patterned paper by Canvas Corp for this purpose. It is nice and bright and goes well with the Christmas theme. Now grab the serviette varnish & glue (or matte medium if you prefer that) and add a layer on the top of the gessoed bauble. Then layer pieces of wripped paper onto this area overlappingly. Make sure they stick to the bauble properly and then add another layer over the paper with the paint brush. Repeat until you got all areas covered. Let dry.
Next add red ribbon across the bauble and tie a knot for hanging on top and add a white button on the bottom for additional detail. Tie a bow over the button. Then add half pearls in a row into the middle. I used a regular paper glue for this purpose.
Finally add smaller half pearls over the red ribbon areas for additional detail. The third ornament is now finished. This one is quite sparkly and shiny, but it will fit perfectly into the Christmas tree decoration we have :).
In two days I will be sharing ornament number 4 – hope you will come back to see how it turned out.
Hi there, I thought I´d be sharing 6 different kind of altered Christmas tree baubles along the twelve days. Let´s start with the super fast and easy one!
For starters I bought a set of decoupage Christmas tree baubles from an art supply store. First I covered the surfaces with white gesso.
Next I took some serviette varnish & glue (matte) and twisted hemp rope natural from the Canvas Corp rope selection. I like this one very much, because it is two toned! I covered the bauble with varnish & glue (a relatively thick layer is needed) and rolled the cord around the bauble starting from the very bottom of the bauble and rolled until all the way up. As an alternative you could also use a thick paper glue or gel medium etc. Then I let the ornament dry properly. The best way to dry it is to let it hang somewhere. And that´s it! That is how easy it was!!!
Here is a little detail shot of the first ornament. I will share close-ups and pretty detailed photos of all the ornaments in my final ornament post – hope you will come back to see the next five altered baubles I created 🙂 !!! Will be sharing one every second day. See you soon!
