DIY Tin & Twine Christmas Ornament

In the spirit of the Holidays, I thought I'd break y'all off a little Christmas tutorial!

This project literally took my less than an hour to complete and it totally looks le expensive!

Here's what you'll need:

Twine (or jute...whateves works ^-^!!!).

Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue. This stuff is THEE BESTTTTTTTTTT. I love it. Seriously I have been using it for everything!

A blank cardboard ornament. 

Embossing tin.
So I started by drawing a flaming heart on the tin.

Then on the backside of the image I drew, I used the eraser side of a pencil to push out the back of the heart giving my image a 3D effect. 

After that, I cut out my embossed tin image and glued it to the ornament.

Next, I spread out some glue around the embossed tin and looped a bit of twine around the heart.

After the initial circle around the heart was finished, I spread some more glue then began individually wrapping twine around each arm-thing of the cross....

(um...do they even have real names?? lol)

 Once my cross ornament was totally covered, I let it dry (which probably took a total of 20 minutes) then added these little clay flowers, just for some extra flay-vuh.


Super easy, super good looking! 

I'm actually really impressed by how good my ornament turned out for as fast as the process was!

Hope you enjoy.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays!!
