12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop Day 4

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- Beth be sure to click HERE if you need to start at the beginning be sure to click HERE.

For my 4th ornament I decided to do the same technique with the paint, however this time I wanted to turn this ornament into a Santa!

  • After adding the red paint and swirling it around, I wanted to give it a little more color so I added a tiny bit of yellow to give it a fun spin
  • Tip it upside down in a paper cup so all of the excess paint would come out the top.  I allowed it to dry
  • Take the end of my sponge paint brush and made the black buttons out of paint
  • Use black ribbon and adhered it with my hot glue gun
  • To make the gold buckle I used a  gold glitter hot glue stick
  • Top it off with a cute black and gold bow
  • Optional-Add the jute for the hook

I hope that you like the ornament today! 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.
