Crafter’s Companion Advent Calendar Day 23

We are so close! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!  I love today’s die. It is ‘Merry Christmas’. I decided to do something a little different this time. I had a plastic ornament that had hair elastics in it. I kept it because I thought I could upcycle it and decorate it as an ornament for the tree. It worked perfectly with today’s die.

I used some Zig alcohol ink that I bought a couple of years ago to decorate the outside of the ornament.  I had some festive crinkled strips of paper used for gift baskets and such and put that inside the ornament. I also used some Cricut vinyl in gold glitter to die cut Merry Christmas to put on the front of the ornament. Finally, I used some Nuvo drops to add a little detail. I think it’s ready for the tree now!
