Grinch Ornament - Christmas in July
Christmas in July continues with another ornament for your tree. I've been spying these Grinch Ornaments on Pinterest for quite a while and decided it was finally time to make one.
I never saw any instructions, but, let's face it, how hard can this be? Let's get started.
I had everything I needed: scrabble tiles, a rack, and the little Santa hat - yes, I used them for cards one year and had some left over. I also had craft paint and spray sealer. Notice, I drilled 2 holes in the rack for hanging.
The first step was to give everything a coat of white craft paint to act as a primer.
Keeping the paint out of the letters was difficult, so while they were still wet, I used a toothpick to remove as much paint as possible.
After two coats of 'Grinch Green' and cleaning out the letters, a Sharpie was used to trace the letters in black.
The rack, after receiving the same paint process was ready for hanging. Fishing line was threaded through and knotted.
The tiles were glued in place with E6000 and the entire ornament was given 2 coats of clear sealer. The Santa hat was attached and the ornament was ready to hang on the tree.
This is a great way to use some of those Scrabble tiles and racks that you find at yard sales and don't worry if you don't have the Santa hat. They should be out in the crafts stores in no time!
Be sure to come back next time for a new Christmas project and the 'Do It Over' Designers Blog Hop. You never know, they may have a Christmas project or two to share with you!
I'm so thankful for my readers! I forgot to include the actual color I used. It's 'Apple Tart' by Craft Smart and I found it at Michaels.
