Rustic Christmas Tree Ornament

Just one more week until the big day is here!  Are you ready?  

Today I have a fun tutorial to share that uses products from two of my favorite companies - Kuretake (who makes the wonderful Zig line of pens) and Basically Bare (who makes tons of amazing embellies and mixed media albums).

So let's get started on this cute little ornament.


Step One: Paint a chipboard pennant with your green Zig Painty FX pen.


Step Two: Next cut a piece of burlap just large enough to fit over the pennant and select three markers in different shades of green.


Step Three: On a craft sheet, scribble the markers.


Step Four: Spritz the ink with three to four sprays of water.


Step Five: Run the burlap through the ink puddle until covered. Set aside to dry or you can speed up drying by using your heat tool.


Step Six: Adhere the burlap to the pennant and trim the edges.


Step Seven: Cover a corrugated brick with a brown Art & Graphic Twin marker.


Step Eight: Cover an acrylic star with gold ink using a Zig Fabricolor pen.


Step Nine: Wrap the pennant with a piece of red ornament trim.  Lastly, attach the star and tree trunk to the pennant using jump rings and add a tree hook to the top of the star.
