    Scrap-Busting Christmas Ornaments

    http://sewtospeak.blogspot.com/2011/...ornaments.html

    Mark Lapinski (? sp) shared this link on his Facebook page. Instructions are simple and sounds like this would be quick and easy to do.

    These would be really nice if done in metallics.

    I agree. I thought of metallics as soon as I saw the ornaments.

    I have a 'Sparkle' Mod Podge that would give a nice sparkle finish to any fabric.

    I used it on a Halloween project last year - painted black cat wooden cutout glued to a gold painted disk. The sparkle finish really brought it to life. Dries clear with irredescent sparkles.

    I didn't know there was a Sparkle Mod Podge. It sounds perfect for these ornaments. I definitely want to try it!

    I'm going to try this with some of the old round ornaments that have lost their shine. Also sometimes you get an ornament with a companies ad on it - oh the possibilities. Even the second hand store ....

    I love tis idea. I host a Christmas Gathering for my family each year and I make each family an ornament and this would be perfect. Thanks for sharing.
