Poinsettia Global Ornament
Today I was thinking Christmas, and I had these half globes in my stash drawer, and decided I needed to use them to create something fun. I came up with a Poinsettia filled Christmas Ornament, what do you think?
I decided to use the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies to create my poinsettia flower and leaves.
I cut the poinsettia from Real Red Cardstock, and the leaves from Mossy Meadow Cardstock. Behind the poinsettia I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I also sponged both the Real Red, and Mossy Meadow Cardstock with the coordinating Real Red and Mossy Meadows Classic Inks and a Sponge Dauber.
I didn’t have a die in my stash large enough to fit around the ornament globe, so I took some Thick Whisper White Cardstock and placed the globe on it and traced it, then used my Paper Snips to cut the circle. I then added the Wood Textures DSP to the cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
I punched a 1″ piece of Real Red Cardstock and used this as my “base” to adhere the stems and Mossy Meadow Leaves together with some Hot Glue, and using Silicone Mat.
I then punched a 1/2″ Circle Punch piece of Real Red Cardstock and adhered the Basic Pearls and adhered it to the center of the poinsettia. Next, I added some Foam Adhesive Strips to the bottom of the poinsettia and adhered to the base I created for the back of the globe. Using my hot glue gun, I adhered the globe to the top of the poinsettia.
I added some Mossy Meadow Cotton twine (for the side of the globe) from the Festive Farmhouse Twine in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and Real Red 3/8″ Mixed Satin Ribbon for the top bow and hanger.
I couldn’t get a super good photo of the poinsettia, but it really look gorgeous in person. This would be a fantastic gift for a ornament exchange party or as a give to someone who will cherish your handmade gift, like me 🙂
