Snowman Ornament

Hello! So glad you stopped by the Blank Page Muse Blog today. I have an upcycled project for you using some small wedding frames I found at the thrift store. I don't know about you but I like to find items thrifting and see what I can make with them.


I found these little frames in a wedding kit with the paper and all kinds of things to make invitations. I put those little frames in my embellishment box and there they sat, then I had an idea...


Using the snowman from the Country Vintage Christmas stamp set by Pam Bray, I stamped the snowman on the little pieces of cardstock that came in the wedding kit. I then used Tombow markers to color the snowman and added some Stickles for sparkle and snow.


After creating this first image on the cardstock, I decided I didn't like how thin the paper was and cut watercolor paper to fit the frame and did the image again on this substrate.

Next, using alcohol inks, color the white plastic frame. Squirt a drop or two out onto your workspace and rub the color on the frame with your finger. The frame is already a bit pearlescent creating a high shine to the piece.


Now that the image is dry, you can glue it to the frame and glue bakers twine to the paper on the back. You now have a cute upcycled snowman ornament that can be used for a package or the tree!!
