12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 2

12107899_10154366668620961_5529537663500022800_nWelcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog hop hosted by the amazing Lisa at Honeybearz Designs! This is my 3rd year of participating in this hop.  I get so excited each and every year to sign up to participate! I would like to personally thank the amazing Elf Lisa for hosting such a fun event.  This year I am doing something different.  I am going to post a different DIY Holiday Christmas bulb using simple craft supplies.  I hope that you will come back everyday to see all 12 Ornaments.  I have been hard at work in Santa’s Workshop to bring you fun projects each and every day! Before we go any further though I want to make sure that you stopped here after visiting our Guest Elf- Carolyn- HERE if you need to start at the beginning be sure to click HERE.

For my 2nd ornament I decided to try something different! I took my plastic bulb that I bought at the Dollar Store and poured turquoise paint inside and swirled it around, I then tipped it upside down in a paper cup to allow the excess paint to drain out of the bulb.  I allowed it to dry.  I then put the top back on it and added some grey ribbon, and this super cute angel crystal charm that I purchased at Michaels.

I am in love with how this turned out! Here is a close up of the ornament with the Crystal Bling Charm.  It adds the perfect touch.

I hope that you liked todays ornament.  Be sure to pull out those old Christmas bulbs and up-cycle them. Be Creative in what you do, and do what you love. I know that this elf sure had fun in her workshop creating this cute bulb.
