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.
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
