I have had this empty ribbon spool on my desk for awhile, but I hadn't found the use for it until today. I decided to use the Welcome Home set to make an ornament out of it.
The edges of the spool were a little bent so I decided to cut the edges off.
I traced around the edges on white cardstock.
I cut two white circles, one for each side.
I cut a strip of paper to go around the center to cover up the cardboard.
I glued the paper strip down and tied black ribbon and plaid ribbon over the center. I stamped the house image with black stazon on one of the circles. I colored it with prisma colored pencils. I chalked the sky. I threaded little seed beads on a piece of thread and glued them to the roof line to make the "LIGHTS" I then added glue and glitter for the snow. I added a wire hanger at the top. I glued the white circle to a slightly bigger circle made of black cardstock. I then glued that to one side of the ornament.
Close up of the "LIGHTS".
On the other white circle, I stamped HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS and I also stamped and colored the jingle bell from the Bells on Bobtail set. I handwrote 2010. I glued the white circle to a larger black cardstock circle, and then glued it to the other side of the ornament.
