Bonjour Mes Amis!
Ok, I am not one who likes rushing the Christmas season. It seems that it comes earlier and earlier each year, doesn't it?
So what have I been doing, but creating glittery Christmas ornaments!
I know, I know, but I just couldn't help myself!
A few weeks ago I picked up a few paper mache star ornaments from Hobby Lobby, not sure exactly how I would use them. I decided to give them a glitter French twist!
So I pulled out bits of this and that, all things that I happened to have on hand.
I started by decoupaging copies of vintage French Christmas sheet music
(found at the Graphics Fairy) to the stars. Then the fun really began!
I used both clear glass glitter as well as regular iridescent glitter to cover the stars.
I "aged" this gorgeous silver tinsel trim with dark brown ink to give it a more vintage feel.
Then I created a bunch of little "Joyeux Noel"
(French for "Merry Christmas") and mounted on heavy chipboard. Also glittered, of course!
I had a bunch of pretty silver glitter snowflakes left over from last year, which were perfect for this project.
I combined them all together, along with some wonderfully crinkly cream seam binding, and this is what I came up with!
The glitter isn't showing up well in the photos, but they are nice and sparkly!
I think they will look so pretty hung from the tree, and really will glisten in the lights!
They were so fun to make, I want to create some more!
