UPDATE: This giveaway is closed. Congrats to Casey S. who was randomly selected to receive the Set of 6 Glittered Paper Ornaments.
This is a recreation of something I saw on Pinterest of a glittered paper ornament from Pottery Barn from last year. The idea may not be original but the following tutorial is all mine!
Be sure to enter today’s giveaway. We’re giving away a set of 6 of these beautiful glittered paper ornaments a la Pottery Barn.
Step 1: Gather your supplies
- 3″ circle punch – You can cut these out by hand but if you can get your hands on a large circle punch it is TOTALLY worth it and will save you a LOT of time
- Paper- can be from and old book, scrapbooking paper, sheet music like we used in yesterdays 12 days of Christmas Paper Pine
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Flat thumb tacks (optional)
- String, Twine or Ribbon
- Glitter (not pictured)
- Mod Podge /Glue (not pictured)
- Paint brush (not pictured)
Step 4: With one of your circle folded in half run a bead of hot glue from the top down about ¼ of the way along the curved edge. Repeat this along the bottom with a bead of glue running up the curved edge about ¼ of the way. Grab a second folded circle and line up the edges and press them together. You will have to do this quickly to avoid the hot glue drying before you can get the 2nd circle attached to the first.
Step 7: You’re going to want to cover up the joint where all the pieces of paper have come together. You can do this with a small circle of paper but I chose to use a flat headed thumb tack. Before securing the top thumb tack, attach your material you’ve chosen to hang your ornament with. I chose to use some more of the string left from my burlap wreath like I did for Day 1 on the 12 Days of Christmas Rustic Chic Ornament. Create a knot in your string/thread and glue it down to the underside of the thumbtack so that the loop of you string hangs above and the runs underneath the thumbtack. Don’t forget to cut off excess string so that it doesn’t stick out from underneath.
Step 8: Place a dab of glue in the center joint of your ornament and push a thumb tack into the center being sure to align it straight so that it doesn’t pierce the paper and stick out.
