Rub On Transfers – Amazon https://amzn.to/3QOXxcv
Mason Jar Lid
Silver Tinsel Stem
First, I traced the mason jar lid onto the cardboard and then cut out the circle.
Second, I traced the cutout circle piece of cardboard onto the scrapbook paper and cut that out. Then I used Mod Podge to secure the scrapbook paper to the cardboard.
Third, I painted the backside of the cardboard circle and the lid of the mason jar with Burgundy paint.
Fourth, I covered the lid with Mod Podge and then added glitter while it was still wet.
Fifth, I used the cardinal from the rub on transfer sheet and put it onto the center of the scrapbook paper side of my cutout.
Sixth, I placed the circle cutout into the mason jar lid and then used hot glue to add the ring of silver tinsel stem around the edge.
Seventh, I made a small hole into the side of the lid at the top and added a length of the silver ribbon to use as the hanger.
Finally, I made a big bow out of the silver ribbon and along with a piece of greenery hot glued it to the outside top of the mason jar lid.
What do you think of how the final project turned out? I think it came out better than I ever imagined it would. This DIY Cardinal Christmas Ornament was so much fun to make and was rather simple to put together. I love to use old items I find and bring them back to life to make something brand new! I hope you give this one a try for yourselves, and see how much it puts you in the holiday spirt!
