DecoArt - Mixed Media Blog - Project - Altered Domino Christmas Ornament. Do you love self made Christmas ornaments like I do? I have been making them since I was a child and some of the really old ones from my childhood days still make it to the tree after all those years and I still love doing them now. Looking at them takes you back to merry Christmas eves from the past – so in a way these ornaments are little time machines and keepsakes that hold your personal Christmas history.

Items needed : Instructions : First prime your domino with a thin layer of Matte Americana Decou-Page to provide some tooth for the acrylic paints to hold on to. Apply some dots of Titanium White directly from the bottle and spread with a brayer. Using a fine tip brush apply some dots of turquoise, green and teal while the white paint is still wet and spread with the brayer.

As long as the paints are still wet sprinkle on some turquoise and white Shimmer mister and lightly mist with water from the spray bottle. Sprinkle on some diluted Metallic Gold with a fine tip brush. Fun with air dry clay. So, this is the last weekend before Christmas!! Eek!

A múltkor elkészítettem a dob forma karácsonyfadísz első példányát és akkor rájöttem, hogy egy végtelenségig variálható darabról van szó, ezért hasznos lenne egy alap elkészítési útmutató, amit aztán mindenki saját szája íze szerint változtathat, az otthon levő anyagok tükrében. Nos, ami mindenképpen kell: az egy alap, henger forma, ami vagy készen van, papírtörlő, wc papír vagy ragasztószalag henger, ezek hiányában készíteni kell egyet, az sem nagyon bonyolult.

Ezen kívül biztosan kelleni fog mindenféle karton, vékony zsinór, szalag, fogpiszkáló, üveggyöngy. A technikai részekhez ragasztó, jó, ha van ragasztópisztoly, de anélkül is megy, illetve én celluxot is használtam. Aztán az összeállításhoz szerelőkarikák, de ez is megoldható máshogyan. Ha megvan az alap, akkor veszek egy kartont, aminek azért van elég tartása, és abból készítem el az alap és fedőlapot, az alább látható módon: Amikor készen van az alap, a díszítés kezdődik és innen mindenki szabad kezet kap:) Vagy ahová szánjátok… Ugly Sweater Ornaments.
