Our creative team mission was to create a DIY ornament featuring the fabulous Rue Romantique bezels by Kristen Robinson.
Supplies:3in x 2in felt & cheesecloth
Rue Romantique Ribbon pack
Rue Romantique Bezel
Festive Holiday Stamps
Stazon Ink Pad (black)
Rhinestone Chain (just one piece)
Acrylic Paint (mint green)
Sewing Machine or Hand Stitch required
Begin by cutting your felt, cheese cloth and sheer burgundy ribbon in 2in x 3in pieces. Snip two small pieces of velvet to be your tabs (for holding the chain), pin in between your layers and stitch all of these layers together. Snip 4 pieces of burgundy velvet ribbon to go around and stitch onto the layered piece of ribbon/cheesecloth/felt. Take a piece of muslin scrap and stamp the words Happy Holidays and stitch on. With embroidery floss, stitch on all four of your buttons. Add chain in the tabs and set this piece aside. Mix up a tiny bit of ICE Resin, add a drop of your desired acrylic paint color, mix thoroughly and pour into the bezel - allow to cure. Once cured, stamp a festive stamp on the cured bezel, adhere a single rhinestone and pour one more layer of clear resin atop to seal. Once this has cured, stitch the bezel onto the layered fabric pieces and your ornament is complete.
So many ways to make your holiday ornaments. Think about a picture of your family each year...the options are endless.
Hope you enjoyed our holiday inspiration!
