Good morning! Michele here with a couple of festive shaker Christmas ornaments! I love using acetate for the base of the ornament because it is easy to fill with sequins and allows the Christmas lights to shine through! I made two for today’s post, one in a cool color scheme and the other in warm colors.
To make my ornaments I die cut 2 circles for each ornament.
I wanted to add a “snowy” hill, so I dabbed on white acrylic paint at the bottom of each circle.
I sprinkled glitter over it while it was still wet.
I love that they are sticky on both sides….one side to stick to the acetate….
….and the other for sprinkling glitter over!
I took silver twine to sew the ornament together. Right before closing it up, slip in a handful of sequins.
This would be a perfect opening for those sequins!
To secure the jingle bells in place, I slipped a Dodz Adhesive Dots Small under each one. Here’s one last look!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
