It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy December!  I just love this time of the year!  We spent a good bit of time over the weekend decorating for Christmas.  And I spent a good bit of time today finishing it up while baking cookies. 

I have a project to share today.  I bought these wooden snowflakes at Michael's to give as gifts (or keep for myself!).  First, I painted both sides white and then used VersaMagic chalk ink in Jumbo Java to distress the edges.  I then applied Martha Stewart coarse glitter to each and added K&Co stickers to the centers.  I gave a coat of Glossy Accents to the vintage images to add some dimension. 

Here are the unfinished snowflakes.

This one I added some Recollections rhinestones, silver-wired ribbon, and a little silver bell attached with twine.

I love the delicate shape of this one so kept the embellishing to a minimum.

And this one was finished off with a little red bow, gold and silver jingle bells and red and white twine.

I apologize for the poor quality of the photos.  I had a difficult time photographing the glitter.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. They are all very pretty, Pat!

  2. Oh, WOW! These are gorgeous, Patty! Absolutely gorgeous!! I LOVE the silver glitter and LOVE the sweet vintage images!! You know what??? This would be such an amazing project to use with the Epiphany bubble caps in the center. You've got my mind spinning! Thanks for the inspiration, my friend!
