Metal Christmas ornaments by Lynne

Hi! Happy December and hello Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts! This is my first post of the month AND my first post on the new blog - yay! I must say I'm still trying to figure out what happened to July and August never mind fall. This year has just flown by and I can't believe the Christmas season is upon us already!

I signed up for an ornament swap on a Facebook group I belong to so had to come up with something that would work for mailing. The plain galvanized metal ornaments and the lovely chipboard pieces were perfect accents-fairly flat and not too fragile!

I attached the chipboard pieces to the ornaments with hot glue then primed the whole surface with silver acrylic paint. The snowflakes came from both  the Snowflakes Shape set and the Winter Shape Set. The gears are metal pieces from my stash. I misted this ornament with Mister Huey's sprays then added adhesive pearls.

The chipboard sleigh and reindeer piece was cut from the Santa's Sleigh border and the other embellishments are various metal pieces from my stash.  For this ornament used Dylusions mist and again added adhesive pearls. The small stars are metal confetti bits.

Some white ribbon bows were layered and glued to the top to finish the ornaments; I had fun putting them together and I hope my swap partner enjoys them! Have yourself a terrific week and thanks a bunch for stopping by!
