Today I have Alli from One Pearl Button sharing a simple and completely brilliant Christmasy decor diy. I love it!
Georgie G is with the babysitter today so that means that I'll have a paintbrush in hand for many hours.
See you on the flip side.
Hello hello, My Girl Thursday readers! This ornament was inspired by one of my very favorite artists, Charley Harper, and his graphic interpretation of nature. It's quick and easy to make, and will add a pretty touch to any tree!
What you'll need: pretty paper (I used metallic scrapbooking paper for the pinecone in the picture above, and pictures from an Anthropologie catalog in the tutorial example photos); a 1" or 1.5" circle punch, a styrofoam ball, plain straight pins, ornament hooks (an unbent paperclip works, too).
Step 1: Punch circles out of your paper.
Step 2: Stick your first circle into the ball, using a straight pin.
Step 3: Add more circles, layering under the first one.
Step 4: Continue adding circles, filling in the blank spaces and always layering under the previous circles, making a fish scale pattern. Keep going until the entire ball is covered.
Step 5: Stick an ornament hook in the top, hang, and enjoy your new ornament!
Thanks for having me, Thursday, and happy holidays, everyone! Stop by and see me at One Pearl Button sometime - I'd love to get to know you!
