Project Instructions

  • 1
    Mod Dot Ornament: With a pencil, lightly trace circles of varying sizes, using round objects around the house, such as coins, jar lids, etc. A total of 10-12 circles of varying sizes and colors are needed. Cut out circles. Start layering the Duck Tape circles onto the ornament. Apply as smoothly as possible. Due to the curvature of the ornament, there may be a few wrinkles, but that’s okay, as you’ll be layering additional circles over them. Once the desired effect is achieved, remove cap and fill ornament with metallic shred. Use dowel to push shred into ornament, filling it as much as possible. Replace ornament cap.

    Crazy Candy Cane Ornament: Remove lid from disc. Pour Glitter-It! inside and slowly swirl to completely cover inside. Pour excess out and allow disc to drain for a minute into cup. Pour in glitter and move ornament around to completely cover interior. Pour out excess glitter. Cut a 7 inch length of Candy Cane tape onto cutting mat. Using ruler & craft knife, cut tape into 1/4 inch strips. Starting at top near disc opening, apply tape around ornament. When you reach end of strip, line up next strip of tape and continue wrapping. Tip: Trim end so the tape matches up as close as possible to pattern of previous tape strip. Slightly move tape strip so it wraps in different directions of the disc. When desired coverage is achieved, replace disc cap.

    Sweet Stripes Ornament: Cut 10 inch lengths of Gold and Reindeer Games tape onto cutting mat. With ruler, craft knife and cutting mat, cut Reindeer Games tape into 1/4 inch strips and Gold Coin tape into 1/2 inch strips. Starting at top of ornament, place strip of Reindeer tape around diameter of ornament, meeting back up to the opposite side of the ornament opening. Trim any excess tape with scissors. Repeat two additional times so there is even placement of three strips of tape on the ornament. Repeat with Gold Coin tape, placing between the Reindeer Games tape strips. Remove lid and fill ornament with your choice of candy. Replace lid.
