I used a paper mache base and striped paper to create this Dimensional Magic Christmas ornament – it’s very easy and looks so cute!
If I am just sitting down and having crafting fun this time of year, I always make a few Dimensional Magic Christmas ornaments.
Let’s be honest, they’re quick (at least more so than say, a dresser). But they are also perfect for Mod Podging.
Paper Mache Christmas Ornament
Gather These Supplies
- Paper Mache Ornament
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
- FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Metallic Pure Gold
- Scrapbook paper and tree accent – I used SEI’s Kris Kringle line
- Spare Parts Snowflake brads
- American Crafts Truffle Ribbon – approximately 1.5′
- Large Rhinestone – coordinating
- Craft Glue/Hot Glue Gun
- Craft Knife and Mat
You will be Mod Podging the paper to the front of the ornament only (choose either side). Put a medium layer of Mod Podge down on the ornament, being sure to get the edges well.
Lay your sheet of paper onto the ornament and align the paper shape with the ornament shape. Smooth thoroughly with your hands – a brayer works very well too.
Wipe away any Mod Podge that comes out the sides. Allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes.
Spread a top coat of Mod Podge onto the paper, as well as over the entire ornament. Allow to dry and apply another coat. Allow to dry.
Use Mod Podge to apply the die cut shape of your choice to the front of the ornament. Smooth and allow to dry.
Apply Dimensional Magic to the top of the die cut shape. Work slowly. Dimensional Magic is great, because surface tension near the edges keeps it on the shape as long as you don’t squeeze out way too much.
Allow the Dimensional Magic to dry in a warm place, NOT near a window, especially this time of year. Cool weather makes DM crack.
Don’t push them flat to the surface. They look great popping off the surface! My brads are sparkly so they add a little fun glitter, too.
