Happy Wednesday everyone! Up on the blog today is a fun hop called Craft Lightning Holiday Edition - everything is made in 15 minutes or less! How fun is that? It is hosted by The Country Chic Cottage, 30 Minute Crafts and co-host Aunt Peaches.
One thing that I always have time for is Christmas Ornaments! All shapes, sizes and colors - the options are endless! Today I am featuring these Faux Christmas Cookie ornaments! Made from craft foam and three dimensional fabric paint - they are QUICK, EASY and CUTE! A great craft to make with the kiddos and the cost of the supplies won't break the bank either.
Here is what you will need:
- Colorbox® Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler - Bark
- Tulip® Dimensional Fabric Paint by I Love to Create - Slick True Red, White and Pistachio
- Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue® by I Love to Create
- Cookie Cutters - Candy Cane and Heart (or shapes of your choice); Craft Foam - Tan; Pencil; Scissors; Clear Chunky Glitter; Silver Beads and Gold Cord.
Here is how to make it:
1.) Trace cookie cutter shapes onto craft foam. Cut out with scissors. Distress edges of cookies with Colorbox® Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler in Bark. This gives your cookies that "just baked" look!
2.) "Frost" cookies with Tulip® Dimensional Fabric Paint in True Red and White. Accent with silver beads, sprinkle with clear chunky glitter and let dry.
3.) Embellish with Tulip® Dimensional Fabric Paint in Pistachio, let dry.
4.) Attach 8" length of gold cord to back of each cookie with Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue®, let dry.
