Christmas is quickly approaching and I find myself doing a lot of Christmas themed projects lately!
I've had a few 2x2 canvases from Canvas Corp in my possession for some time now and I finally decided to go ahead and make them into some ornaments. These ornaments were super easy to make and they really didn't take that much time, either!
I think they would be super cute to give as a little gift or even tie them onto a gift as a gift tag.
One of these little canvases was burlap and the other was the traditional canvas fabric. I started by cutting out some poinsettias using my Sizzix Pillowbox die set. I just cut out the flower pieces and a few leaves.
Then, I colored all the die cut pieces with Distress Ink and then spritzed them over with some Kraft Glimmer Mist, too. The Glimmer mist gave the flowers a pretty goldish shimmer. I personally think that all Christmas crafts could use a little shimmer!
After the poinsettias were colored I assembled them and used a tiny brad in the center to hold them together. Then, I glued them onto my canvases. For the little truck image that says, "Deck the Halls", I cut out some tags from the Farmhouse Christmas Mix and Match pad from Canvas Corp. I also inked the edges of these tags just a tiny bit so they looked a little more aged.
Finally, to finish off these little ornaments, I added a little red raffia bow as well as some white paint splatters to give it a more snowy look.
I love how simple and rustic they turned out! The poinsettia is really to focal point and I love the vintage image of that truck.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
