Clear Shaker Ornament Tutorial

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 grabbed a package of 3D Creative Foam Sheets and die cut my evergreen trees. I also added in some smaller trees from the 3D Foam Trees.

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!
