DIY Snowflake Christmas Ornament

Good morning, everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed a long weekend with your families…now it’s back to the grind.  I’m a little slow on posting this next project, but better late than never, right?  Although most of you probably have Halloween on the brain, Christmas is really not too far behind that.  Well, today I have a quick and easy Christmas project created by design team member Heidi Blankenship to share with you 🙂

Heidi started off with a basic snowflake ornament from her local dollar store for this project and embellished it with a variety of metals and bling from ButterBeeScraps.  Heidi first spray painted four Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishments (#683-B) and two Bronze Snowflake Metal Filigree Embellishments (#203-B) using Krylon flat white paint.  Once the paint was dry, she buffed some of it off using steel wool to expose some of the metal.

Heidi then started layering the metal onto her ornament.  She cut each of the Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishments (#683-B) in half and used them to create the first layer.  She then added the two Bronze Snowflake Metal Filigree Embellishments (#203-B) on top.

Heidi then added a large resin cabochon to the center of the snowflake and scattered several SS20 Clear AB Flat Back Crystal Rhinestones to add a little extra sparkle.  If you’re wanting a little more detail on how Heidi created this ornament, she has posted a detailed tutorial on her blog.

Once again, I thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day!  Don’t forget that I am giving away free beans for every single product review that anyone leaves in the shop this month…what a great way to score some free product of your choice!  You can click HERE for all the details 🙂

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout eems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for grtting off-topic but I had to ask!

      Carrol, I used WordPress to build my website from scratch. There are a ton of different free themes you can choose from to customize the way your website looks. I have purchased a premium theme based on the functionality I require. I hope this helps! Monique
