Project Instructions

  • 1
    There are a number of different techniques shown in this project that can be used for any or all of the foam ornaments or for decorating any other foam surface. Note: Areas covered with Glossy Accents should dry overnight. Allow all paint and glitter glue applications to dry thoroughly between steps.  Project time does not include this drying time.

    Ornament 1: Using Iridescent glitter glue, attach Green metallic cord in a wide wavy pattern across one of the Red ornaments of the wreath. The bottom part of the waves should roughly divide the ornament in half. Fill top half of ornament with Snow Accents using a craft stick. Fill bottom half with Glossy Accents. Tip: practice on scrap paper to establish flow. Outline border of area to be filled in and then fill in rest of surface. Try to avoid stopping and starting as that will create air bubbles. Allow to completely dry. Use Silver Glitter Glue to decorate ornament topper.

    Ornament 2: Continue clockwise around the wreath for decorating the ornaments that follow. Use Iridescent glitter glue to attach several pieces of Gold metallic cord across one of the Green ornaments of the wreath. The pieces should be varying distances apart and droop toward the middle of ornament. Fill bottom portion of ornament with Iridescent glitter glue; shake on Red glitter; tap off excess onto scrap paper and return to jar. Repeat with second section of ornament and Glue glitter.  Apply Red rhinestones from the multi-color pack an equal distance apart across this Gold section. Fill ornament topper and other sections with Glossy Accents, following instructions as noted in previous step.
