Christmas Place Marker Tutorial

Hello friends!
Another tutorial to share with you today!
A festive Christmas decoration or a place marker for your table, it's sparkly and cute!


 

 
The base is a small wooden spool found at a local craft store.
I inked it with Vintage Photo Distress ink to give it an aged look.





 
Wrap a piece of ribbon and glue to the spool. Now head out in your yard and pick up a few twigs. Cut one to desired size, I cut mine to be about 9 inches.
Place down in center of spool and glue to adhere.





 
Cut a couple holly shaped leaves from sheet music and color with green ink.
Cut a 3 inch paper scallop or circle from scrapbook paper and a paper snowflake.





 
Cut a 1 1/4 x 3 1/2 inch banner shape from pink cardstock.





 
Glue banner to center of scallop.





 
Then glue the holly leaves and snowflake to the center of the scallop.





 
Then add a paper rose to the center. I found a lovely set in sugar kissed colors at Michaels.





 
Add silver glitter glue around the edges of the banner shape to add more sparkle.





 
Write names or stamp a Christmas sentiment to the center of the banner.





 
I used masking tape to attach the twig to the paper scallop.





 
Glue another scallop to the back to finish off the back.





 
It makes a great display on the shelf!


 


 
Have a lovely day, Lindsey
