Handmade Christmas Ornament - Easy Christmas Craft
Hi everyone, Mou here with a tutorial to make handmade Christmas ornaments using Gelatos and Pitt Artist Pens®! Let me list the supplies before I show you how to make these ornaments with basic tools and supplies.
Recommended Art Supplies:
- Comet, Mars, Odyssey, and Satellite from Iridescent Set
- Aqua Dolce
- Gold Champagne
Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens:
Other - cardstock, thread, trimmer, scissors, pencil, glue
Start by trimming 4x4 inches squares out of white cardstock, six pieces for each ornament.
Fold squares in halves. Draw a tree, a gift box and a house with a pencil. Cut out with scissors.
Using the first piece as a template, cut the other five pieces for each ornament design.
Cut about three pieces of thread or twine, each to 6 inches.
With glue, attach the matching design pieces back to back. Before attaching the last piece, fold the thread in half and place between the previous and final piece to make a loop.
Color the tree ornament with Mango, Comet and Satellite Gelatos colors. Blend with water.
Once dry, make marks on the tree ornament with the Permanent Green Olive Pitt Artist Pen.
Color the gift box ornament with Mars, Odyssey and Gold Champagne Gelatos colors.
Add details to the ornament with the Pale Geranium Lake and Gold Pitt Artist Pens.
