We had a fun-filled weekend with visiting family, going to a bridal shower, going to a Halloween Carnival with the kids where they both won special prizes, trick-or-treating and mom and dad were more than ready for bedtime on Sunday night!! 🙂
I promised on Facebook on Friday that I would post a project I worked on by Saturday–but, I left town before I could get it done, and I forgot my laptop at home. 🙁
Friday I seemed to really get in the crafty groove- knowing full and well that I would NOT be able to stick around for it, because I was volunteering at my kids’ schools from 9-noon and then we had to be ready to leave town by 5pm and I had to pack and tidy up the house! But, I kept going like I had all the time in the world 😉
I think I must work well under pressure!
So here is one of the projects I did on Friday–and I love, love, love how it turned out!! 🙂
Like I said I had a bridal shower to go to, and since the wedding is NOT until January, I couldn’t get the traditional 1st Christmas ornament…so, I thought this would be so fun for them to put on their tree.
The couple’s wedding color is purple, and they had a purple-theme tree last year- so I know this will go perfectly on their tree!
I welded the Soon to be and the last name on my Gypsy using the Cherry Limeade cartridge. The Mr. and Mrs. comes from the Wedding cartridge.
(wanna know a secret….? I’ve had Cherry Limeade for a longgg time, and this was my first time using it! I love it though!)
The Bride loved the ornament, and it was super easy to make!
I am really LOVING these glass ornaments I picked up from Hobby Lobby- they offer a lot of space to ‘play’ with and decorate!
I sprayed adhesive on the inside of the ornament (any spray adhesive should work) and then I waited for a few seconds (to keep it from clumping) Then I poured in the glitter, and shook it around. I then poured the glitter back out to save it for next time. It’s amazing how little glitter is used to cover the inside of an ornament.
I cut the words out with my FAVORITE alternative to vinyl- Square 1 Printable Wall Decor. This stuff is so, so easy to work with– I don’t think I could go back to vinyl!
As a matter of fact, I think I will do a giveaway of some Sqare 1 Printable Wall Decor –how does that sound?
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post 🙂 Easy, peasy!
(ps. I promise I will slow down on the ornament making for a little bit…I seem to create in themes…and it’s hard for me to switch gears!)
