Ready for the Holidays

This week's Blogger's Challenge was to make an ornament. I found this little wooden ornament (already painted!) for $1 at Hobby Lobby this week. The main image is by Rubber Soul. I just love these little stick carolers! The boys look just like little Pez dispensers! I just paper pieced the carolers' outfits and added color with Copic markers.

I added some fuzzy texture to the girl's accessories with white Fun Flock that I found at Paper Pretties Corner Store. The sentiment is a rub on! I've never used these before, but they're really fun and easy! The mittens charm is by Karen Foster.

This ornament was really fun to make. I'm thinking it might also make a nice gift tag on a holiday package this year. If you want more 'ornament' ideas, check out my Blogger's Challenge list on my sidebar for all the links!

  1. So we are both early! I never thought about changing the post time, duh. When you make a post there is a area that says post options. If you click on that you can edit the date and time of the post. Oh well, maybe next week if we are early. Great job on the challenge. What an awesome find for $1. I love all the details.
