Welcome to Day 11 of The 12 Days of Holiday Projects Blog Event. Several crafty blog friends and I decided to post one holiday project a day for 12 days - just for fun. We’re posting projects we made using products we like and hope they will give you some inspiration for your own holiday craft projects. You will find links to all the other participating bloggers below. Hopefully you can find time to look at the other blogs and leave comments on any that inspire you. If we inspire you to make, something please let us know - we would love to see. Happy Holiday Crafting!!

For my Day 11 Project I'm sharing some more ornaments I made with my favorite large Sizzix ornament die. When I got my second order of Claudine Hellmuth acrylic paints, I LOVED the teal color and I was inspired to make these teal ornaments with some Tim Holtz retro dies. These are definitely non-traditional ornaments in color and subject matter, but I really like them and think they would look great on a tree. 

To make them, I die cut the ornaments from Tim Holtz Grunge Board and painted the ball Teal and I painted the hanger with Tim Holtz Brushed Pewter Crackle Paint. When it dried I went over the ornament with Black Soot distress ink (see www.timholtz.com) and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist. Then I die cut the shapes and painted them with black acrylic paint and Brushed Pewter crackle paint for the accents. The fabric hanger is Tim Holtz trim that I died with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain. I glued them on with Glossy Accents. They were really fun to make!  I can't believe we only have 1 day left. I have a big project to show you tomorrow. I hope you can stop by to see my Day 12 project. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can make it to the blogs of the other ladies to see the awesome holiday projects they are sharing with you today.
