Michelle here with you today to share how I gave new life
to Christmas ornaments that are over 20 years old,
using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever,
No-Clog Writing Cap & Embellie Gellie.
Additional supplies used:
Shabby Rose Trim
When my husband and I spent our first Christmas
together, we had purchased some
flat (no sheen) gold ornaments for our first tree.
I had used these to decorate our tree for many years,
but like with anything else, time took it's tole.
They had become splotchy & moisture stained spots, and I still
kept them, thinking I would eventually
give them a make over.
That time has come.
I first applied gesso, after it had dried I used paint colors in pairs of 2.
I re-decorated the surface of the ornaments in hues of Rose Gold, Pink & Gold, and used elements that had a more Victorian look, to gift to my mother
for my parents new Christmas tree this year.
She loves the look of these shades, and has many
other Victorian style decorations, and these will
be a perfect addition.
Once the paint had dried, I used the Best Glue Ever along with the No-Clog Writing Cap (for precise use of BGE) to attach ribbon, trim
I then used Embellie Gellie to add the embellishments to the BGE dollops and allotted a "tack" time (5 min or so) to instantly set the embellishments once applied.
Very easy project, and giving new life to something
much loved for many years,
and easily done with the FABULOUS
Best Glue Ever, No-Clog Writing Cap & Embellie Gellie.
