Instructions: To prepare your ornament- First I rinsed the ornament with warm water and dried it with paper towel. Now the fun part…squirt some of the Pledge into the ornament, enough to swirl around inside the ornament. Try not create too many bubbles inside. Pour the excess liquid out and add your glitter. I had to keep adding, it took a little more than I thought it would. Just keep turning the ornament until you have full glitter coverage. That’s it, let dry.

Stamp the poinsettia image using white ink on vellum and die cut. Shape the smallest flower. I added beads to the middle of the flower using 3D Crystal Lacquer. Let dry. Add glitter to the tips of the flower petals using a glue pen and Crystal Clear glitter. Let dry.

Stamp and die cut one of the small holly clusters. I added colour first with the dark green pencil with shading and then with the Chameleon pens. Then I added 3D Crystal Lacquer to all of the holly berries. Let dry. Shape the holly and cut apart in the middle. I added the poinsettia and holly to the ornament using hot glue. Add ribbon to the ornament.
