She Makes GLITTERY GIRL ORNAMENTS tutorial



Well hello all you Glitter Girls !! I hope you will enjoy my tutorial , this too is my first ever and so hopefully you will enjoy this fun little craft :
Supplies needed :
Wire Dressform ( little pink studio )
Glass glitter in different colors like red, green, diamond dust glitter,
glitter glue
wire needle nose pliers
soldered charms
greenery from picks that you get in christmas section of craft store
silver crown
velvet thin ribbon , thin ribbons in holiday colors
heavy glue like e6000

First you will take the dressform apart by removing the skirt from the dressform top - The dressform top will now become your ornament - The dressform will have straight wire coming from the bottom so you will need to curl the wire to make the dress form stand at the bottom using needle nose pliers.

Next you will cover the dress form in your favorite glitter wet glue, heavily coating each part of the wire dressform frame - (I prefer diamond glaze )- make sure you have a plate or something to work on for catching your glitter as you work - I next start coating the form with glass glitter as seen above , i used red. If you find that a part is not sticking appy more glue and coat again with glitter - Set it aside to dry . I would wait several hours to make sure it is dry or overnight -
(waiting is always the worst part !!!)

If you choose to do a cream one - You will need to paint the frame with your favorite acrylic cream paint from craft store and let it dry - then coat the same as above using diamond dust or clear glass glitter -
Next is time to adorn your ornament - I found cute little evergreen style picks at the craft store and put them in the side arm are to use as wings - i added a cute soldered circle to the front with glittered word - and glued with heavy glue like e6000- next i added a cute crown to the top - you could adorn these with lovely ribbons then to hang them - be careful its hard to make just one!!
So much fun !!!! feel free to email me any questions to bethquinndesigns@mac.com -
xo,
beth
