I’ve started making ornaments for this Christmas, so far it was felt bird ornaments and then we made pearl snowflake ones and a couple of them using the origami technique. Now, its a reindeer glittering reindeer ornaments using cardboard and glitter.
When I started off, the idea was to make a full silver dust reindeer – and then when I looked at the Crafty JC Challenge for this month with the theme Pick Your Palette, I decided to make my reindeer equipped to enter the contest. So here he is, the yellow gold, blue and red reindeer to decorate your Christmas tree.
Glimpse of the Ornament:
Trace or print out a reindeer design of choice.
Paste this on a piece of cardboard and cut out along the outline.
Paste a sheet of yellow gold paper on the cut out piece evenly and allow to dry. Then cut out the extra gold sheet along the outline.
Start by using red and blue sparkle glue as shown.
Now paste yellow rhinestones for the body of the reindeer.
Yellow glitter for the complete body outline.
The finishing touch using red glitter and rhinestones.
Attach a hoop and hang it.
I just realized that this craft qualifies for the latest Heart Song Inspirations’ Gold or Glitter Challenge too!
