Zeta Omicron Card & Ornament Sale

When: 9am-5pm,  December 6th, 2016
Where: Marywood Learning Commons Lobby

Christmas time is here … even though we have two weeks of school left it is time to get into the holiday spirit. Zeta Omicron, Marywood’s chapter of Kappa Pi, the International Art Honor Society, will be selling holiday ornaments and cards December 6, 2016 in the lobby of the Learning Commons, 9am to 5pm! If anyone is looking for a cute, handmade, item stop on by. Since I am a member of Zeta we all had to make at least one ornament and one card, so I will share with you my process of making my ornament, a glitter snowflake. 

Supplies needed: hot glue gun, wax paper, snowflake template, dish soap, glitter, mod podge,  and string.

  1. To start I had to find a template online. I chose the one above because of the different designs. While preparing supplies it is important to remember to preheat the hot glue gun.
  2. Then I placed the wax paper over top the template and spread dish soap on the wax paper with a little water to make the removal process easier.
  3. I then traced the outline with the hot glue making sure to have even lines so their will be no weak spots. After one layer on each snowflake I then went over top to make it thicker.
  4. After they are dried just peel them away. If the paper stick run under cool water. Once they were all removed I rinsed them under cold water to remove the soap and to aid in the firming process.
  5. Since these are going to be ornaments I wanted them to be more dimensional, so I did  two layers of hot glue on their backs.
  6. Once completely dried use a brush to apply mod podge to one side and apply a nice coat of glitter to cover it. For my snowflake I did not have blue glitter so I used sugar and food dye. Repeat the process for a second coat and the back side of the snowflakes once they are dried. You can use different glitters layered together. I will be adding white and silver glitter as the final layer of my blue snowflake.
  7. The final product will then have a string hot glued to one of the ends (not pictured) and the ornament is complete!

Happy Holidays!
