Ornament-2Supplies Used:  Melissa France Cottage Ornament, glue gun, white acrylic paint, 12×12 Foil Cardstock Silver, mini holly leaves, seambinding, tinsel ribbon, and a mini red rose. 

Ornament-3This adorable little chipboard Cottage Ornament comes naked, flat, and easy to assemble and decorate.  I painted the entire house with white acrylic paint, hot glued the window and door lattice in place, glued mirrored silver cardstock behind them, and then hot glued the house, base, and roof together.  I hot glued the ornament hanger in place, and covered the roof in more silver cardstock.  I then decorated with tinsel, seambinding, and a mini holly leaf.

  1. These are perfect on the tree for ornaments.
    Love the way you decorated them and gave them that shiny roof for Santa to land on Christmas Eve.

  2. OMG this is going to be fun an exciting. Definitely, great so that we can make extra decorations for people as Christmas gifts! I must admit I have never been one to think out of the box but you are such an inspiration and I cannot wait to watch another video and learn learn learn!

  3. This ornament reminds me of the old village houses that my mom used to have out when we were little. They belonged to her parents. They were my favorites :)

  4. This is so adorable, and would make a lovely gift for someone as well – nice house-warming gift, something like that!

  5. Oh how adorable! This is the first year my family has purchased a real Christmas tree, so I hope to make it memorable by decorating it with many lovely ornaments.
