This month the Alpha Stamps is offering Round Layered Ornaments Kits. They are pretty dang cute. I've actually done two* versions of these (you'll see the second batch next week).
*Maybe even three if I get my act together.
But on to the ones that I've actually finished and am ready to show off today!
Pretty cute, no?! If you had told me a few years ago I'd be all about the glittery pipe cleaners (and yes, they will forever be pipe cleaners to me) I would have told you, you were nuts... but here we are all glittery and pipecleanerish!
Not only do these sweeties shake and make a lovely noise, are two sided to boot!
I'm not sure why I keep calling these guys 'Snow dudes' rather than 'Snowmen' but they keep insisting that IS what they are called, so I shall comply.
I made a slightly larger and more complicated version of these guys last year. This year, I've simplified the heck out of them while maintaining maximum cute.
And if you'd like to make your own HERE is the video tutorial...
And here's what you'll need:
styrofoam balls jute twine white/clear glitter good quality white glue hot glue small metal brads black seed beads straight pins or flat head jewelry posts toothpics
black and orange paint
small eye hooks
I had this ridiculous idea that I'd try to post a project a day, a sort of bloggy advent calendar for the month of December. I've got a good stockpile of projects here, so hopefully I can coax 24 blog posts for the month. Who knows if it'll happen but we'll give it a try, eh? ;)
Some of the projects will be gifts. Some will be abandoned for strangers to spread some holiday cheer. And very few will be for sale if you want to gimme your pennies.
Let's get to business.... Zombie Ornaments!!!!!!
I did some miniature zombies not tooooo long ago, and so when someone mentioned their 'creepmas tree' these things had to happen.
I mean, just because it's winter doesn't mean that there are no zombies right?
I bet that there are even Christmas Day zombies!
I made a VERY small batch of these. There are only 8 for sale and I won't be making more.
If you require some Christmas Zombie magic HERE is the listing.
P.S. Love you loads and bunches! Hope you're having the BEST day.
Holiday making is in full swing. Yay! I'm hoping that all the glitter, and glue, and pretty Christmas pictures, kick my spirit in the pants so that I'm cheery as all heck this year.
Last year was exhausting and I think aged me about 10 years. This year I want to enjoy myself. There are rumours of snow for this Monday, fingers crossed it comes and I'll be the holly jolliest mo' fo' you ever did see!
Until then, I'll settle for fake snow and glitter... which isn't so bad. This shabby set of ornaments is covered in the stuff.
They are made with laser cut wooden frames (last years post-christmas clearance, bought for pennies, hells yes!). I prepped the frames with blue paint then slopped those suckers with glue, white acrylic paint, glitter and faux snow. Add fake berries, burlap, snips of lace and tulle, vintage buttons and ta dahhh!
