I’ve worked with resin on other projects and each time I feel a little more comfortable with all the ways to use it! For this ornament, adding color to the epoxy was my experiment. I ultimately made two different styles of epoxy ornaments so stay tuned for how I made both the softer watercolor looking ornament and the brighter more vivid marbled ornament.
If there’s one thing I have in abundance, it’s scrap wood. Last year I made these cute mudcloth ornaments with scrap wood, and this year I’m making colorful little houses. Keep in mind that my drawing skills for these are those of a 15 year-old so someone with a little more time on their hands could easily make each of these houses mini works of art with window boxes and vines crawling up the sides and more!
I’m kinduva big fan of bottle brush trees so this year I wanted to find an easy way to make them into cute Christmas ornaments for my 12 Days of Ornaments series! These ornaments are adorable but I wish I had found COLORFUL bottle brush trees to use instead, so that would be my tip… if you can make these with colorful ornaments, do it!
