Here is an ornament I created for the Show Us Your Plaid! - A Christmas Craft Challenge at the May Arts blog. I was a little stumped as to what I was going to create...but I think it came out cute ;p'. Thanks for the motivation, Sam :)!
I created an ornament from a chipboard ornament shape that I purchased from Michael's. I primed it with gesso and then painted it with red acrylic paint. Using the beautiful trims from May Arts, I weaved a plaid pattern. I added the wire ribbon adorned with pearls at the top to hang the ornament. I tied a bow using the 1.5" holiday prints/wired trim and adhered it over the hanger trim. I also added a couple paper poinsettias with pearl centers and some Making Memories glittered chipboard letters.
I used the following trims to create this project:
1/4" metallic/chain cord in gold (348-14-30)
1/4" metallic/chain cord in silver (347-14-31)
3/16" wire ribbon adorned with 3/16" beads in pearl (FY09)
1/8" solid polyester ribbon in black/gold edge (340-03)
1/8" solid polyester ribbon in green/red edge (340-55)
1.5" holiday prints/wired (MX44)
AG 3/8" - Solid Metallic (AG25)
I had a lot of fun playing with May Arts wonderful trims! I love them!
