OTP Christmas by Cathy

Posted on

Hi Ladies,

Christmas is almost upon us, and at this time of the year I like to create a few special OTP Christmas projects to decorate my home and give as gifts.  I am always on the lookout for items to alter and recently I purchased this rustic metal heart hanging at a gift store.

MHC Christmas OTP - Peace Love & Joy

I love the mini glitter roses as they are perfect to add some sparkle to your Christmas creations.  To alter my heart I used the wire from the glitter mini roses to attach them by twining around the frame, then wrapped the left over metal stem around a paintbrush to curl.

I decided to use the new large Poinsettias as my main flower embellishment, but I wanted a contrast to the white glitter mini roses, so I pulled out the yellow stamens and misted the flowers with scarlet glimmermist to add a bit more sparkle.  I then replaced the yellow stamens with some green ones to match in with my Christmas colours.

I backed my heart with paper, embellished with some Kaisercraft collectables and a few charms with I altered with Viva Inca Gold paste and finished off with a bow.

MHC Product Used:  large poinsettia, glitter mini rosed – red

Once again, some of  DT girls have provided us with some amazing inspiration for decorating our homes for Christmas.

Quick and easy Christmas decor

HI!  Nerrida here.

 My kids made the annoucement the other day that our house didn’t look like Christmas…… so I had a brief moment of inspiration and saw that our coffee table could do with a little something.  I made both of these in half an hour each – they were so quick and easy! I urge you to have a go too if you’re house isn’t feeling Christmassy.


I sprayed the centres of the Shimmers – Snow flowers with Mr Huey’s – Calico. The holly leaves are large rose leaves that I cut bits out of to make the holly leaf shape.

It was so easy after that – I just used double-sided foam dots to attach the Silver Bells and Marguerite red roses to the sides, then tucked 2 Taneisha flowers in each side of the Wishes flower at the front.


I really enjoyed making the first one so I had some more inspiration for a second one in teal.

* * * *


This time I used the Wishes – Serenity flowers & Sugar and Spice in teal, and also a large doily instead of a cardstock circle as my base.

I loved the vibrant red of the Romance – Sweetheart flower, so I pulled the middle out of it and used it as a smaller flower for a filler.

I hope I have inspired you today to decorate your home for Christmas, to help everyone get into the spirit.


Products used: (For Red) Wishes – Hope, Taneisha, Marguerite – Blush, Silver Bells, Shimmers – snow, Large Rose Leaves. (For Teal) Wishes – Serenity, Shimmers – snow, Sugar & Spice – teal, The Tropics – By the pool, Romance – Sweetheart.
