These new ornaments are perfect for Autumn decorating or (dare I say it) your Christmas tree.
They are simple to make if you have rub-ons, some wood branch slices (pre-drilled holes are nice) and Jewelry Resin.
I brushed several layers of a clear drying decoupage medium over the surface of both sides of my wood slice. I wanted to protect the wood from any possible stains it would show if it had direct contact with the resin.
Then I happily selected some of these adorable Flower Fairies. Good rub-on stick immediately, and these worked perfectly.
I then brushed the surface with a glaze layer of Jewelry Resin. One layer of our resin is equal to 50 coats of varnish. This is a quick way to achieve beautiful results.
I allowed my resin to cure for 24 hours and then began to work on the opposite side.
I "rubbed-on" some words from the Flower Fairies collection. I had to cut them to fit my circular slices.
I also added some dots with my paint marker.
Finally, wherever I could squeeze it in, I applied a butterfly rub-on.
My slices were pre-drilled. I had to open the holes again after the two resin applications.
I just love how these turned out!
By the way, if you search "wood slice" in ETSY, you will find some to work on if you do not have access to a branch and saw yourself.
