Mini Stenciled Plate Ornaments

YAY! Christmas is coming, Kelly  the goose is getting fat… {hee-hee}.  Super excited to be sharing my first Christmas Tutorial of the season!  Don’t you just {love} this time of year?  I do!   The extra dose of colors, smells, yummy goodness, colder temps, the crackling fires in the fireplace  —- and CRAFTING!  Today I’m going to share a project that includes some Martha Stewart Paints and supplies.

Anywho, let’s grab a few supplies and get this party started.  For this project, I used a couple of Martha Stewart Paints, specifically the glass paints in Florentine Gold and Holly Berry.  Other supplies from her line included adhesive stencils, a couple of daubers from her crafty dauber set, mini plate ornaments (from Hobby Lobby) and twine/ribbon .  We’re officially ready to go!

I removed the ribbons since I didn’t want to fight with it while stenciling.  I teetered between doing a monogram and gifting it.  I enjoy gifting ornaments each year.  However, I decided  to use the leaf/twig stencil on these mini plates.

I then tried to approximate where I would want the stencil placement.  I used a pencil to help sketch some lines for me to stay within.  The stencil was adhesive, allowing me to move and reposition as necessary.  I then went to work {smile}.

I continued to reposition the stencil within my pencil markings and daubing the paint on.

I then moved onto the other mini plate ornament using the Florentine Gold, a beautiful fine glitter gold paint that was a bit transparent.  The variety of Martha Stewart Paints you have to choose from is fabulous!   Let me insert here that it is a shear miracle as to how much I loved this color and paint.  I am not a fan of glitter.  Honestly, it gives me EXTREME anxiety.  I just admired the gold color enough that I had to try it!

And I {loved} it!!  It created a few challenges trying to capture it on camera, but where there’s a will there’s a way!  Add the string, ribbon or twine and VOILA!  A fabulous ornament, gift or embellishment.

 So, what do you think?  I think there mini plate ornaments are a-dorable!

      Ladies… seriously, glitter makes me cringe. If I’m in Michael’s and the counter is full of glitter, I tell the cashiers that I can’t lay my items down. Serious. Anxiety. I might need help :)
