LBH 12 Days of Ornaments: Day #12

                                  Happy Thanksgiving! 
I would like to wish you all a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving Day! As I count my blessings today, I am reminded of all the friendships that have formed from relationships made at the Little Blue House! I have crossed paths with so many and I am thankful that YOU are one of those friends! May God bless you and may we all stay true to our passion -- and Keep Creating!   Much Love, Miss Tracy

I hope you have enjoyed all of the 12 Ornament Tutorials that have been featured here over the last 12 days! I have one final ornament to share with you today...Silhouette Shaped Ornaments designed with ScrapStasher style! 

These are paper mache ornaments that we have available at the LBH...and I figure the perfect way to end the series was to show you how simple it is to use your scrap papers up...possibly the bits and pieces left over from your first 11 ornaments.

These are so fun and easy...would be a great craft to get your kiddos involved in too!

This is what the paper mache silhouettes look like...I will be layering two of the together for this fun ScrapStasher Ornament.

Supplies you will need:
Paper Mache Silhouette Shapes
Art Anthology Paints
Scraps of Printed Papers
Ribbon or Twine to hang the Ornament
Glossy Accents & Stickles
I chose to use these wonderful Sorbet Paints from Art Anthology...Evergreen on the Tree and Ruby on the Stocking. Hard to capture on camera but it has a beautiful pearlescent sheen with a touch of microfine glitter...

Paint two trees and two stockings...remember to turn the stockings so that the painted sides are on the outside of the ornie when you layer them...
Now grab your scrap pieces of paper, scissors, pen or pencil and some glue...Hand cut or trace out the areas you want to cover with specific papers, cut and glue into place on the unpainted side of the ornament.

If tracing, be sure to trace on back side of your paper and then cut a little outside the traced line. This will ensure that you don't cut the papers to close and have plenty of room to glue them down.

When done with both sides of the ornament...You will glue them together. So the papers appear to be sand-wiched in between the silhouette shapes. I used small clothespins to hold mine together while the glue dried. 
With the tree, I decided to just use one piece of scrap paper that I liked the print on the front and the back. Cut and glue into place...just like the stocking ornament.

I pierced a hole through the paper and ran some twine through the Stocking and ribbon through the Tree to create hangers.
Then add some FuN accents to my papers using Stickles and Glossy Accents. Let them sit flat to allow time to dry before you turn them over and accent the other side. 

When they are dry...You can hang them on the tree. 
 These could also be cute to hang off of your
 gift bags or wrapped presents!
