Handmade Christmas Ornaments-Candy Canes with Canvas Corp Brands & Petaloo

It's that time of the Year again!
Time to start digging through your crafty stash and your favorite
Canvas Corp Brands products, to create beautiful
 Handmade Christmas Ornaments!!!
Join us over on the Canvas Corp Brands Blog, HERE
to see all the beautiful and fabulous 
Handmade Christmas Ornaments everyone created.

Here is my take on the DIY Handmade Christmas Ornaments!
I started with a simple dollar store find plastic candy canes...
I gathered my Canvas Corp Brands supplies and hot glue gun-oh yes
put on some favorite Christmas music!
Let the creating begin....I have a Step by Step Tutorial in this long blog post!
But I wanted to share how easy and fun it is to create...enjoy!

I so love the natural canvas shabby torn look with the amazing
Petaloo flowers with the natures tiny pine cones...

Step by Step Tutorial

Step 1-Dollar Store Candy Canes & Canvas Corp Canvas
I tear small sections out of the natural canvas.

Step 2-Start by wrapping the canvas around the candy cane
using hot glue.

Whoola see how fun and easy it is to change (alter)
a simple candy cane...this opens up a world of creativity...

Step 3-Grab your favorite Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist!
I used Dazzling Diamonds to give the natural canvas a 
soften feel. 

Step 4-Start coloring your embellishments...
Here I am coloring in layers on Petaloo flowers and trims.
(coloring layers-start with your lightest glimmer to darkest).

Adding darker glimmer mist just running it around the edges
of the flowers this will bleed into the centers with 
a little water to help push the color technique.

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist-
Abominable Snowman & Snowy Pines as well.

Step 5-Create leaves out of Canvas Corp's natural burlap.
I just cut little squares, started on one corner and cut out 
a leaf shape...all mine are different sizes. 

Step 6-Color your burlap leaves with Tattered Angels 
Glimmer Mist Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Step 7-Edge the burlap leaves with Tattered Angels
Glimmer Glam Glitter Paint-Lime Cordial.
Dry them and add a layer of gel mediumn on them
(this helps for the burlap not to unravel)

Step 8-Start to embellish I used another
dollar store find white snowflakes ornaments.
I cut them apart to tuck in around the flower cluster.

Skies the limits on embellishing! I used cheese cloth,
trims, flowers, jute, snowflake, tiny pine cones and
 for the finishing touch, Decor Art Snow-Tex...

Up close photos....enjoy!
