Happy Monday Everyone!
Kristyn here today to share my Handmade Ornament for Day #9...Thanks so much for following along!
I have created yummy ornaments for you to enjoy! Take a look at my cute little Gingerbread Couple...
These ornaments are really easy to create and I think it would be a great Kids Craft too...family crafting can be so much fun!
Here are the supplies that you will need:
Paper Mache Ornament
(these could be gingerbread men, trees, bells, really any shape would be cute as a cookie ornament)
Stickles - Diamond, Red, Black
Paint - Metallic Espresso
Chalk Ink - Mocha Mama
Helmar 450 Tacky Glue
Ribbon (about 24 in.)
Okay...time to get cooking!!!
Begin by painting your ornament...set aside to dry or use your heat gun to dry it quickly. Then trace the ornament on the back of the self-adhesive cork and cut it out. Apply the cork gingerbread cut out to the ornament.
Now to make our Gingerbread Man looked golden brown on the edges, add a little brown chalk ink.
Add a little holiday sparkle to your gingerbread by pouncing some Diamond Stickles over the cork with your finger.
Time to ice our Cookie...I used a product called Snow Writer and drew on the icing accents on my Gingerbread Man. Immediately after, I sprinkled over the icing with Diamond Stickles. Looks just like sugar crystals!
Tap off the excess "sugar" and then add his eyes (black stickles) and his cherry buttons (red stickles).
While the stickles is still wet, add some bling to the center of each cherry button. I used twinkle Goosebumps...so cute!
Allow your stickles and icing to dry...
To finish off your yummy ornament, take your ribbon and glue around the edge of the ornament. Attach the ribbon with Helmar 450 tacky glue. Go around the entire ornament. Slightly overlap the ribbon when it meets and trim off the excess.
Take excess piece and create a loop for the hanger. Use Tacky Glue or Hot Glue and attach to the back of the ornament.
Your Gingerbread Man is now complete...
I created my second Gingerbread Ornament and decided my guy needed a gal...so I adorned her with pink bling and a cute little red bow! I love my cute little Gingerbread Couple!!!
Thank you for reading my tutorial today and I hope you will create a whole batch of these fun, yummy Gingerbread Ornaments!
My Mom especially loves these cuties because she decorates our entire kitchen every Christmas with Gingerbread Guys and Gals that she has collected over the years.
