EasyCast® Glittery Snowflake Ornament

I am always on the lookout for Silicone Molds to use with EasyCast®.  To my surprise, when visiting my mom this week, I found she had bought a great silicone mold, that would be perfect for coasters, ornaments and more...

With the holidays right around the corner, for today's project, I decided to create a glittery snowflake Christmas ornament.

Materials:
  • EasyCast®
  • Silicone mold
  • Snowflakes
  • Glitter, ultra-fine
  • Mixing cups
  • Stir sticks
  • Toothpick
  • Lighter
  • Drill
  • Eye pin
  • Ribbon
  • Craft glue

Project Instructions:

Gather your supplies.

 Measure out equal amounts of part A and part B, stir together for 2 minutes.  Pour into a second mixing cup and stir for another minute.

 Add a bit of glitter.

 Pour into the mold.

Use a lighter to remove air bubbles if needed.  Set aside to dry for 8 - 12 hours.

 Mix together 1 ounce of the EasyCast®, as directed above.

 Pour a  small amount of the mixture into the mold, over the dried glittered resin.

 Use a toothpick to place the snowflakes into the resin.

 Arrange them in the mold.  Set aside to dry for 24 hours.

Drill a small hole at the top of the ornament.  Glue a piece of ribbon into the hole to create a hanger.  Enjoy!!
