Joy's Life DT Happy Holidays Blog Hop




Welcome to The Joy's Life DT Happy Holidays Blog Hop!! Can you believe it's December already?? Christmas is right around the corner! I just love the holidays!! Of course here in Tx, it is about 80 degrees now, so it's not too festive, but today we are putting up our tree and that always gets me in the Holiday Spirit!

Now on to the hop! You should have come from Amy's blog, if not you might want to start at the beginning over at Joy's Blog

For my blog hop project I made an ornament!


I saw one similar to this on Pinterest so I gave it my own little twist and came up with this! I started with a glass ball ornament and some scrapbook paper that I just love from Hobby Lobby. I tore the paper into small squares, inked the edges and Mod Podged them onto the ornament. While the Mod Podge was still tacky I sprinkled some chunky glitter all over and then let it dry. I had some picks with tiny pinecones and berries so I hot glued them around the top of the ornament. I stamped my sentiment "Peace Hope Joy" from Joy's set Wintery Puns in Fired Brick Distressed Ink and cut it into a "banner" shape. Inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added some "Gold Ice" Ice Stickles (My new favorite Stickles!!!) I put on both sides of the ornament so that no matter which way it turns you can see it!

Here is a close-up of the fabulous sentiment....

Stunning! such a beautiful ornament, love the vintage look and of course the sentiment is just perfect. When using the modplog did you use it straight from the bottle or dilute it? I am going to give this one a try for sure.
