12 days of ornaments: day 8

I know of several of you who are keeping up with the 12 days of ornaments -- thank you for sending me your photos! I love to see how many of you have adapted these patterns. :) Today's ornament is the easiest of the bunch, but is oh-so sweet:



You will need a small styrofoam cone, patterned paper, white flocking, a white pom pom, small half pearls, a holly die or paper punch and a small doily.

  1. Cover the cone with patterned paper. I used a polka dot pattern, which worked great for adding the pearls later.
  2. Trim a 1/4" strip of white cardstock, scalloping one long edge. Following the manufacturer's directions, add white flocking to the strip. When dry, glue it in place along the bottom edge of the hat, with the scallops facing down.
  3. Add a white pom pom to the top of the hat.
  4. Place white pearls all over the hat in a random pattern.
  5. Die cut or paper punch three small holly leaves. Group them together and add them to the hat as shown, along with a red half pearl.
  6. Glue the hat to a doily.
You're done! Fair warning ... the last few ornaments are a little more complicated! :)



Have you been keeping up with the give-aways during SCT's 12 Days of Holiday Giving? The products have been outrageously wonderful and a little bird told me that one of them will be a nice set of PageMaps dies. ;) Not sure what day, so you'll have to be sure to visit often! Check it all out at SCT's Blog, as you still have time to enter all of the drawings to date!



See you tomorrow!
