Hi everyone, Carol Ponsford here sharing an idea inspired by StencilGirl® September StencilClub set designed by Gwen Lafleur and MaryBeth. As soon as I saw this set it brought me back to earlier days when my family would make our Christmas decorations rather than purchase them. (I have to admit I have a fondness for the Old World glass ornaments.) However, looking back to those days when we sat around a craft table to see what creations we could come up with brings back such wonderful memories that I still treasure.
There were a couple of the designs that I immediately knew that I wanted to use. The narrower pendant shape would make a great ornament and the triangular base of the larger pendant would make either a tree ornament or a freestanding tree decoration. To begin I laid the stencil on white medium weight cardstock paper and sponged red acrylic paint to apply the design onto the paper.
After all three sides are attached you can add glitter if you choose or personalize the large oval in the center section with a Monogram or family picture. Add an ornament hanger and enjoy sharing with your family on your holiday tree.
