Retired - Family Christmas Ornament

PROJECT C2012
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Personalize this ornament for a one of a kind treat for your tree. They also make great gifts and gift tags for all the people on your list, naughty or nice!
Instructions
You will also need some ripped up cotton balls or some other stuffing and a circular guide for this project. I used the bottom of a tin.
  1. Begin by tracing and cutting two identical circles.
  2. Please watch our video: How to Use Hotfix Swarovski Crystal Rhinestones with Ultra Suede. From what you learned in the video, place your Hotfix rhinestones where you like them. You can use the photos as a guide, but this is your time to get creative. Arrange the rhinestones before you begin sealing them to the ultra suede. Please note that you will receive 50 crystals of each color by purchasing this project bundle. If you want to vary your design you may want to purchase additional packages of crystals.
  3. After you have your design set, use the HotFX applicator to glue them to the ultra suede.
  4. Align the two pieces of ultra suede back to back.
  5. Make a basic bead embroidered edge with the Nymo and Toho seed beads. Before completing the circle, leave a one inch space and fill it with the stuffing until you achieve your desired look. Finish the beaded edge. At the top of the edge you will pick up 9 seed beads and make a loop. Weave back down into the edge and tie off the tail of the thread.
