How to make a rhinestone Christmas Tree Ornament
Growing up, there were certain ornaments on the Christmas tree that were special. Now that I am older, I still have special ornaments but they have different meanings, our first Christmas together, baby’s first Christmas or that High School Musical ornament that my daughter got when she was 8 and played the music over and over again, driving us all crazy. You can make this beautiful ornament and give to that someone special so that you will be remembered.
For this project I used:
1 silver ornament
Sapphire 12ss PriceLess Rhinestones
Crystal 12ss PriceLess Rhinestones
Wax tipped tool
I like to lightly sketch the design on the ornament with chalk to use as a guide. When you are done gluing, you can easily wipe the chalk marks away. Once you’ve settled on a design, place a drop of glue about the size of the rhinestone on the guide chalk marks. Pick up a rhinestone using the wax tipped tool and gently press it into the glue. Don’t worry about keeping the design symmetrical and use the chalk lines as guides
I added several crystal rhinestones scattered between the sapphire rhinestones. Allow to dry for 24 hours. Using a paper towel, wipe off any stray chalk marks.
Now you have your own special ornament to build memories around!
