Hi Guys!!!  It's day 3 of our week of handmade Christmas ornaments!  I think today's ornament is my favorite so far!  It's a Melissa Frances Farm House Ornament that I covered in paper.

Ornament-10Supplies Used:  Melissa Frances Farm House Ornament, Stickles, Precision File Set, hot glue gun, off-white acrylic paint, Bottle Brush Trees, paper, Petite Tinsel Green, Glossy Accents, and roses.
Ornament-14Here are the easy steps to creating this little guy. (The farm house ornament comes flat. )

  • Paint the base, and window & door lattice with off-white acrylic paint.
  • Trace the house and roof parts onto cardstock, cut out, and glue with Glossy Accents. 
  • Sand the edges and folds to get an aged look.
  • Hot glue the house together, and then add  the roof.
  • Add the hanger, and add hot glue to the inside for extra strength.
  • Hot glue the assembled house to the base.
  • Decorate with roses, petite tinsel, and bottle brush trees.
  • Add Stickles to the roof line, and you're done!!

  4. 1.How likely is it that we will follow an economic growth path where emissions from thawing permafrost are about 45-46 gigatons (altogether) by 2040? And annual anthropogenic emissions are 45-46 gigatons by 2050?
    2.Relatively speaking, how important is it that all emissions from thawing permafrost will total 45-46 gigatons by 2040, which is about 140% of total anthropogenic emissions in 2010? (Of course, such emissions will grow for a long time after 2040.)
