It’s that time of year where we all start thinking of the holidays so what better way to get your Holiday spirit than a great Helmar Holiday Hop? Filled with so much Holiday cheer and some amazing projects featuring all the different Helmar Adhesives.
Hello everyone and welcome to my stop on the Helmar Holiday Hop. If you have been following along, you should have hopped here from Jennifer Evan’s blog. If not, you just have to stop at the Helmar Blog and start from the beginning. There are goodies along the way and we don’t want you to miss a thing.
I purchased some glass baubles from a craft store, plastic would work just as well
|choose a couple of vibrant paints and pour in to the bauble...I am using metalic colours and have allowed one colour to flow before adding the next one|
|once you have coated the inside of the bauble you can pour out the excess to use in another or store in an air tight container for another project|
|the bauble to the left used alcohol ink inside instead of acrylic paint, once it was completely dried I squeezed in a fair amount of Helmar Premium Craft Glue, and a mix of fine glitter and chunky glitter/sequins. While the glue inside is still workable, put your thumb over the opening and shake to distribute the contents. As the glue thickens and dries you can continue to roll the bauble to move the glitter inside|
|I used the opening of the glitter pot to hold the first bauble as I dotted the surface with small blobs of Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots|
|I loved the faux ice look when I allowed the glue to trail down a little|
|I covered all but a small section with the Scrap Dots...you can see in here...how cool is that?!?|
|it needed some sparkle, so I used glitter and my craft glue to coat the inside of the bauble|
|once it was dry I smeared a little gilding paste over the soft spikes to show their detail|
|this bauble was filled with alchohol ink, german glass glitter, sequins and Premium Craft Glue before being shaken and rolled...it reminds me of a planet|
I hope you have enjoyed what I have created here and perhaps you will have a play and create your own unique and fun Christmas ornaments to adorn your tree
