I decided to make an ornament tonight, as I was feeling in the Christmas spirit.
I used Mod Podge to put two layers of cereal box cardboard together. Then, I used an image of a treble clef I found online and traced it onto sheet music scrap paper. I used scissors and an exacto knife to cut the silhouette out. Finally, I used Mod Podge again to make a glitter outline. I'm pleased with the outcome! It looks good on my tree, but it would also make a great gift!
-An old wooden plaque (I bought this one at a barn sale for 5 cents)
-Brown, black and white paint
This is what the wooden plaque looked like:
First, I traced the shape of the plaque onto a piece of scrapbook paper. I painted a layer of Mod Podge on the top, attached the paper, then trimmed the edges.
Next I painted more Mod Podge on top of the paper and edges, sealing it to the wood.
I painted the wooden pegs white, then painted brown on top, then painted a small amount of black over those colors to make a dark brown and antique look.
I marked the spots for the pegs on the back of the wood. Then, I pounded each nail in and wiggled the wooden peg over the nail like a screw until it was firmly attached to the wood. Then, I removed the peg, put on some wood glue to the end and screwed the peg back on the nail.
Once the Mod Podge dried, I sanded the edges of the heart for a more finished look.
