Make your own Victorian Paper Ornaments

Hello My Friend!

Today I wanted to share with you some

 easy to make ornaments.

These prints are generously supplied by The Graphic Fairy

Save and size to fit .

Things you may need-

small scissors for detail cutting

An Angel face cut-out with

card stock backing,

 cardboard cut out shape or Star Tree Topper

 Mod Podge, chenille stem /pipe cleaner, hot glue.

something fluffy- like yarn, tulle or feathers-

and glitter-

white glue for glitter

I pick up these small glass jars when I see them !

I love this yarn- I think it was from Michael's Crafts

It's called Glitter Eyelash-

I backed my print with cardstock.

Fussy-cut all the details of your angel.

On the back, bend a pipe cleaner/ chenille stem along the outer edge.

Attach to cut out using hot glue.

The chenille stem  gives some dimension to the ornament. 

Then I added a layer of fluffy yarn.

I like to show you the back side so you

can see what's going on-

I added some tulle behind the wings.

These plastic toppers are easy to find-

yes, I found these at Walmart yesterday!

You can paint or glitter to your liking.

I used mod Podge and glitter.

I try to confine my mess by sprinkling the glitter

inside a plastic shoebox.

Afterwards the extra glitter can go back in the canister.

Glue angel to the center of the star.

Here's the backside.

This angel was made the same as the other.

I took a glitter chenille stem and followed the curved

edges, then glued in place with hot glue.

The chenille stem give support to the delicate details.

This topper was already covered in a dark silver glitter

and I liked it-

These smaller ornaments below were just made

with card board from cereal boxes.

I cut them and covered both 

sides with Mod Podge and glitter.

I had these sepia colored angels in my paper stash.

I couldn't remember where they came from. 

I hope you enjoy these sparkly ornaments!
