Christmas Ornament Tutorial by Annie of Olde Annie's Primitives
 This is a Christmas ornament I made for my daughter.
She works for the Seattle Times and is a big sports fan.
So I took a clear flat shaped glass ornament (I preferred this shape over the round ball shape) and used the sports section from the Times to make her ornament.
I liked the red in the title...it gave it more of a Christmas feel.
I made sure to get in key elements on the ornament, such as the Seahawks, Mariners and the date of the paper.
This way she will always know what year I made it. I finished it off with a light coating of glass glitter and some silver accents. I love how it turned out.

I ripped significant pieces and head lines from the sports section and used Mod Podge to glue all the pieces on, making sure the entire ornament was covered.
Once it was completely dry, I coated it with Mod Podge again and sprinkled the glass glitter on.
After that dried, I made the bow and accents using three different ribbons. I used one of the ribbons as a hanger, too. I chose the red side for the front and below is the back side.
A great idea to use throughout the year!!
Thanks Annie for sharing.
