Gather up a jar, tinsel twine, mini woodland tree and the mini trophy. In order to get the mini trophy to fit I had to cut the handles. Ink the woodland trees with evergreen bough distress spray stain.
Check out how to make these pinecones and watch Tim's Video...this will help you master this die. Ink the edges of the greens with some ground espresso. Once the jar is dry coat with clear rock candy distress crackle to crack the class. A great frosty effect.
I wanted to experiment with my Ranger distress paint picket fence and the Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder for the greens and pinecone tips. Much to my surprise the 2 were a perfect pair. On the craft mat I had left over distress paint so I rolled my tree in it.
Making sure I had a good coat of paint on the tree I then rolled it in the Soft Fallen Snow (you can sprinkle too) and WOW...it stayed in place. You can heat lightly if you want. Just pull the heat tool off for a few moments. It doesn't need a lot of heat.
Time to antique the trophy. I added poppyseed alcohol ink to the trophy for color. A great way to "antique" it after you've colored it is to use some hand sanitizer. Dab it on and this will dull and remove some of the alcohol ink. I always keep hand sanitizer on my desk.
To create a snowy bottom use some fake snow from the dollar store or cotton balls hot glued to the lid.. I dabbed a little distress paint picket fence on the "snow" then I sprinkled some more soft fallen snow. This adds a little shimmer and it's all about layers.
Hot glue the snowy tree into the vintage trophy, then onto the lid. I added a mirrored star and inked some jingles with the left over alcohol ink pad. Attach the lid to the jar then some twine attached to the top.
This is when you add all your greens and tattered pinecones to the top. Embellish with little red jingles and Believe Charm. I snapped the ends off so I could mount it on the jar lid. Wrap the tinsel twin around the lid then attach the Believe Charm.
Another quick ornament... Brushed Pewter on the mini skate blades. Coat the skates with clear embossing ink and coat with the Soft Fallen Snow and lightly heat until it just puffs. I wanted to see how it inks and yep, it inks great! Add some embellishments and more twine to hang.
The finished Vintage Jar Ornament
Unlike glitter (which don't get me wrong can add amazing shimmer) the Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder adds a nice flocking easily visible through the crackled glass.
Creating the peek window is a fun way to create this ornament. Placed on the tree with the lights behind will show off that crackle finish.
Here's why I love charms... You can ink them to go with your creations and you can alter them! I snapped the ends off to go with my lid. With the tinsel twine you can't even tell.
The tattered pinecone, greens and red jingles are the perfect way to top off this vintage ornament.
Look how adorable these mini skates turned out.
I love that you can ink up Soft Fallen Snow and the barely there puffy texture is outstanding.
The Mini Victorian Snowflake Charm is so pretty tucked behind the twine bow.
What a pretty vintage Christmas Ornament Set.
These 2 ornaments turned out so different using the Soft Fallen Snow Embossing Powder. I love the full coverage and matte look even with a little shimmer. If you prefer no glitter you can also use the Ultra Puff White Embossing Powder.
