DIY: Crate and Barrel replica ornaments

>> Wednesday, November 24, 2010

I saw these ornaments in Crate and Barrel and thought they were adorable. I knew it would be a fun project to work on and make these myself.

Here is the inspiration.

Here is my homemade version.



They look perfect with the bird ornaments that I purchased at Crate and Barrel. A wood land forest theme. Just need to add some pine cones and squirrels.



Here is what you need.Glass paint, Clear glass ornaments, Martha Stewart fine bronze glitter, Elmer's clear glue and fine white beads.


These were easy to make. Just requires a little bit of patience.

For the Christmas trees ornament.
You add one layer at a time. First paint the red circles. Next paint the white Christmas trees. To create the glittering Christmas trees draw the trees with clear Elmer's glue and sprinkle the fine glitter. Remove the excess with a fan brush (was not sure what to call it .A paint brush with fan shaped bristles). This works really good. Next add the clear glue to the white Christmas tree and sprinkle the tiny white beads. Easy as that!

Note:Let the paint dry completely before you add glitter.fine glitter will stick to anything that is even slightly wet.

For the Winter forest ornament
I drew the trees free hand with white paint. You could use glass etching solution to do the white tree if you have it. Let it dry. Then draw trees with clear glue. Add glitter and remove the excess.

It took a lot of time but was well worth in the end when my daughter said "Mommy they look beautiful". That's all I needed to hear.

Many news networks tease stories promising to give viewers "the latest information" and calling nearly any news that happened within the last hour "breaking news!" Stories
constantly seem to be evolving, making viewers feel the necessity to be updated
by the second, but often the facts of the story don't change - only the rumors.

I say see what works for you if you should make a decision to go this
way. Assume to set some time into looking at your chiropractor to heal correctly.
