Handmade Holiday Ornament Swap with Charity Wings


I joined a handmade holiday ornament swap! we are supposed to make two ornaments - one to swap and one to donate to the Charity Wings auction tree.


Once we signed up for this swap we were assigned a partner, my partner asked I sent her both ornaments since she volunteers at Charity Wings.  I made three ornaments, one was glass, so just in case something went wrong there will still be two ornaments left, one for my partner and one for Charity Wings.

All the ornaments sent to Charity Wings will  decorate a tree to be displayed in the Art Center for a week or two, afterwards in early December they will auction off the whole tree to raise funds for all their worthy causes!

Here are the ornaments I made:  



a glass ornament covered with polymer clay in different colors and added some glitter by using Viva Decor glitter liners 

This ornament is made of SCULPEY® ULTRALIGHT™, added a template to the clay by using TRANSLUCENT LIQUID SCULPEY.  I used several Viva Decor products: the back is painted with precious metal gold paint, I used glitter liner in halo iridescent around the Santa image, the edge was colored with glitter pen in fuchsia color, and used glitter liner in ruby color for the hat. 

A paper mache star, I actually got this star at the last CHA summer show in Illinois, base painted with Viva Decor 3D stamp paint in blue,  added a bit of Inka gold - old gold paint over the blue and used the gold an ruby glitter liners to embellish the edges of the star.

I hope everyone likes these and that they all arrive in one piece to my partner.  I hope I have inspired you to get creative and make some ornaments to share with friends and family.
