Stopping in to share my recent projects, Victorian inspired Christmas decorations.
Naturally, I had found 2 similar projects
on Pinterest (I AM ADDICTED)
and wanted to give them a try.
Here is what I used:
Small Tree Branch
Fine Grit Sandpaper
Bottle Brush Tree
I used a gesso base coat on both the wooden triangle & peat pot.
When the gesso fully dried on peat pot, I then painted it with a Rose Gold acrylic paint.
For the tree ornament, I cut vintage sheet music & decorative paper, glued to each side of the ornament, lightly distressed front & back edges as well as the sides, and very lightly, brushed Rose Gold paint to all surfaces, and enhanced all edges with distress ink.
To finish the peat pot, I used texture paste, along with a sprinkle of glitter, to mimic dripping snow around the top edge. After gluing the ball on the inside if the pot, I used the same texture process, but also sprinkling with faux snow (the type used for Christmas Villages).
To finish the tree ornament, I pre-filled a shallow hole on the bottom, cut tree branches to an unchanged piece, and secured with glue.
To the top, I added photo pin and ribbon, and on one side only, I added a glittered snowflake embellishment.
To finish the pot, I secured with glue,
a bead wrapped, bottle brush tree, photo pin with printed Santa image (also found on Pinterest), and ornaments on top of the "faux snow", and I also glued a glittered foam snowflake to the front to complete the look.
Whew, seems like a lot of work, but these were fairly easy to create, and didn't take a lot if time to do.
Thanks for stopping by, with this gal being in the Christmas spirit, there are no doubt, more Christmas projects to come!
