Ornaments, Ornaments and more Ornaments Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm so happy you stopped by to check out my ornament for the hop. If you're not here from the hop I hope you'll check it out because there are a lot of goodies to be had! Each blogger on the hop is going to give away their handmade ornament featured AND there is a grand prize - a stocking full of surprises from Lindy's Stamp Gang, KinderStampO, Karlas001, Helmar, PYMII and Unity Stamps. One winner will be picked from all the comments left on all the blogs!
So you should have arrived here from Pam's blog  If you didn't, and want to start from the beginning go here 
This is the ornament I created, the products used to create this ornament can be found in my store Your Memories Here.
It's a little wooden birdhouse you can get at your local craft store for around $1. I decorated it by first spraying the main part with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in Santa Baby.
It is red with a golden glimmer and works so well on wood, the color soaks in but the glimmer stays on the surface and shines. Next I punched out roughly 15 scalloped circles from a sheet of Prima North Country paper.
I inked all the edges with Iced Spruce Distress Ink (from the limited edition winter collection) and I glued them with Helmar 450 Quick Dry onto the roof of the birdhouse like little shingles. I added a bit of Distress Stain in Picket fence to give them a snowy look too.
I also added 3 Prima velvet holly leaves to the top of the roof. They are a light gray, but I sprayed them with some Trunk Bay Glimmer Mist to give them a more turquoise color to match the Prima paper.
No home for the holidays  is complete without a Christmas tree - So I made this little fella out of a chenille stem, rhinestone star and a few dabs of Christmas Red Stickles.  It looks so festive in the little birdhouse.
I finished decorating the outside with tinsel trim, Prima lace trim around the base Prima mini roses and some Crystal Ice Stickles on the eaves and anywhere else icicles might form.
So if you like my little birdhouse ornament and would like to give it a home on your tree just leave a comment telling me what your favorite Christmas song is and I'll pick a winner on the 18th. Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you are the winner ;)
Next up on the hop is Elisa's blog
Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas full of Joy and Peace!
