Christmas Ornament 2011

Every year I make Christmas ornaments to place on everyone's place setting for Christmas dinner. This is the ornament that I came up with this year. I saw a similar ornament online...can't remember where...but it was painted. The swirl was then painted on top. I thought...adorable ornament...but too much work. I adapted this one by using the pledge floorwax technique and Martha Stewart glitter...inside the ornament. Then I finnished it off with a swirl cut with my Cricut Expression out of Cricut vinyl. I then wrapped the ornaments in cellophane and tied them with ribbon odds and ends. I love how these look like those little  peppermint candies. These ornaments were so simple to make.

  1. plastic 4" disc shaped ornaments from Michael's
  2. Pledge with Future floorwax
  3. Martha Stewart-Garnet Glitter
  4. Cricut white vinyl-3ml
  5. Cricut cart-Wrap it up (swirl)
  6. christmas ribbon odds and ends

These are fabulous! I've seen your ornaments before, but I think this is my favorite. One of these days I'll have to get you to show me that Pledge/Glitter technique...sounds like it would be great for a kids birthday party!
