Can you believe there are only 7 Friday’s until Christmas? It’s like poor Thanksgiving has become the middle child between the candy and fun of Halloween, and the glitz and gifts of Christmas. On that note, here’s a fun Christmas ornament project for Kelly’s count down to Christmas! I am going with a natural theme on my upstairs tree this year and I wanted to add a bit of glitz and I wanted to share a wood slice ornament idea with glitter that would be the perfect bit of sparkle!
This project uses mica glitter. If you’re not familiar with mica glitter, it’s a much different glitter than you find in the craft stores.
It has a very pretty,natural organic sparkle and lends a natural look.
I made my own by hot gluing the twine on the slices, but if you buy these, you can cut out the middle step. After your hangers are glued on, you can go to the next step of using a paint brush to paint the adhesive on all over the surface of the wood slice.
You can use white craft glue, but I chose to use Sparkly Mod Podge to give it a bit more sparkle under the mica glitter.
After you’ve completely coated the wood slice all the way around,dip your slice in the glitter and completely cover every glue covered surface and let dry.
I just laid mine out on a board to dry.
I love the bit of multicolored sparkle under the heavier snow-like flakes.
After they dry they are all set to hang!
I think these will be so pretty all over a tree.
They catch the light and look like frozen snow flakes. That’s what I like about it. They have that chunky, icy look,perfect for holiday projects!
