Do you ever just wake up and think, "I need to make something today."? I did, just this morning. I didn't want to just start something, I wanted to spend a little time in the craft room and make a little project, start to finish.

So, a Christmas ornament. I used a small 2" round tin, some scrapbook paper, micobeads, faux pearls, some tinsel, a few rhinestone stars, and a bottlebrush tree and a little vintage plastic Santa.


The snow on the bottom is Apoxie Sculpt clay with microbeads pushed into it. The clay is so great to use because I just simply pushed the tree and the Santa into it and it holds them in place. 


Not a lot to it, but I love its sweet, simple vintage look. And it looks great on the tree.  Smiley

Thanks!

I got the Santas from this shop on etsy. Looks like they don't have any more of the teeny tiny ones, but they do have the larger size (which are still pretty small.)

Teeny tiny!! This is so cute. It will look adorable hanging on your tree. Good idea to push the  micro beads into the clay like that. It looks so snowy!

Thanks, y'all! We're traveling at Christmas this year, so we don't have a real tree up, but this does look cute on my 3" silver tinsel substitute tree. Cheesy
