These acrylic ornaments from Carol have a lot of possibilities!-Erin

Jeweled Podgeables #NUO2012
Hi all. I'm Carol from The Answer Is Chocolate blog, where I write about and share all kinds of crafty things ,  fueled by my lifelong addiction to chocolate.  I'm so excited to be participating in Erin's "No Ugly Ornament" series! I love ornaments. I don't mean "oh I really like ornaments". I mean I LOVE ornaments. Over the years I've managed to expand from one, then two, then three, and now four trees I decorate plus the "man tree" that my husband and son decorate. With so many trees, you might imagine that it's practical for me to make a lot of my ornaments! It’s no secret that I’m mad for Mod Podge ( or some would just stop after mad). This past Summer I had fun playing with the new Podgeables from Plaid and made these ornaments for a Christmas in July series I participated in. These can either be ornaments or package toppers so let’s see how to make them.

Podgeable Ornaments

You’ll start with your clear acrylic Podgeables that come in fun shapes. You can find these wherever Mod Podge is sold. I used the tag, dove, and heart. Not shown from the same package: key, crown, scallop circle. Trace around your podgeable onto your choice of scrapbook paper, cut out.  Brush your preferred Mod Podge formula on your paper shape ( I used Antique Matte) and adhere to the underside of your Podgeable.

I used a sheet from last year’s Recollections “Naughty or Nice” collection. Once these are dry, time to embellish! I grabbed some crafting tape, also by Recollections. Washi tape / crafting tape ...same thing.

I just put a strip of it wherever it seemed like a good idea. But wait, that’s not all. I also had some holiday themed rub-ons in my stash  so I added those. But wait again, still not done:

I got a thing for bling. I love love love self adhesive rhinestones and pearls and stick them on anything I possibly can.  So out they came and on they went. For the swirly ones that come pre-shaped, I cut with a craft knife wherever the design worked for my ornament.

Some of the Podgeable shapes come with holes in them and others don’t. I debated about drilling holes in the two that didn’t have them ( something I clearly didn’t think about before I started) and didn’t want to wreck what I’d done so I looked around my craft room and my eyes landed on my jewelry making stuff and aha…half of a toggle clasp!

I glued the toggle clasp to the back of the ornament ( I painted the backside of my ornament just cause I did. You don’t have to) and whew! Instant way to put an ornament hook or tie to a package.

One of my trees has a nature theme w/ lots of green, metallic brown, and silver ornaments. Can't wait to add these.

Thanks again to Erin for hosting this series and hope you'll drop by for a visit at my place sometime.

 Happy Crafting!
