Upcyled Bohemian Ornament

By: Divya N for
Upcyled Bohemian Ornament
Upcyled Bohemian Ornament

"Decorating on a budget can be exciting. In this project I have upcycled a dollar store votive candle holder into an exotic bohemian ornament to add color and pizazz to your tree. Using simple and easily available materials like felt, beads, rhinestones, alcohol inks and embroidery floss, this ornament can be made in a couple of hours. I have included two versions of the ornament - one with a tree embroidered in the center and the other with a chunky rhinestone for more sparkle. This vibrantly colored ornament would also work well in places where Christmas is celebrated during Summer."

NotesTry mixing alcohol inks to come up with different shades as I have done in the variations. A blender or a sealant can be used to get the consistency right
