Handmade Christmas ornaments are always special to make and share. They represent your style of home decoration during this festive season and they go far away from the commercial ones. With green color being one of the top choices every year, I chose to make ornaments in tree shape that fit well on Christmas tree, gift boxes and any other decorations and projects.
The wooden tree shapes are covered with All-Purpose ink and Delicata Emerald green. The design on top follow the same color choice, but with a little of sparkle, using Imagine’s embossing powder Verdigris.
The process shows two ways to color the trees using the inks used in reverse way.
- Delicata – Emerald Green
- All-Purpose Ink – White
- Imagine’s Embossing Powder – Verdigris
- On Point Glue
- Sponge Dauber
- Stipple Brush No. 6
- Wooden tree shapes
- Heat gun
- Viva decor Peacock feathers stamp set
Heavily cover the tree shape with Delicata emerald green. Let it dry or speed up the process with a heat gun.
Use a soft flat paint brush and make repetitive strokes following the shape of three branches. The two inks will start to blend creating soft lines. Let dry well or use a heat gun. Repeat on the other side.
For the second ornament, first paint the tree shape with All-Purpose white ink. Let it dry.
Use the Stipple Brush No 6 and the Delicata emerald green to make strokes following again the shape of three and the way branches should look. Let it dry. Repeat on the other side.
Stamp with VersaMark and Viva clear stamps and heat set Imagine’s embossing powder Verdigris with your heat gun.
Add rhinestones to embellish further the trees with by gluing with the On Point Glue.
