Thought I'd re-share this tutorial from 2013 -- so you don't have to go searching!

Well, hello Wednesday! I can't believe how it snuck up on me, and I certainly can't believe I've been neglecting my blog so much lately. Oh well, today is a new day and I've got a super cute, easy and fast Christmas Ornament you can make! And, you only need a few supplies, even better!

Mini 25 House Ornament by Catherine Scanlon

Here are the things I used: a small wood house cut for me by my Dad, some vintage text, some polka dot paper, a bell, a Tiny Frozen Charlotte, Block Talk Alphabet Die from Sizzix, gel medium, gesso, 2 screw eyes, bead chain, sanding block and a paint brush.

I started by priming the sides of the house with gesso and letting it dry.

Then I used gel medium to collage the papers on each side and sanded down the edges of the block on all sides to remove any paper that hung over.

I cut out 25 from black card stock and used gel medium to attach them to the patterned paper side of the house and added a screw eye at the top and at the bottom.


To finish them off I added the bell to the bottom screw eye, the bead chain to the top and the frozen charlotte to the other side. I also used keys, mini Christmas trees and snowflakes for a little variety. That's it, a super easy, super fast, and SUPER cute ornament, and yet another way I love that Sizzix Block Talk Bigz XL Die!

Thanks for joining me today, have a lovely Wednesday!
