Other Supplies

Paintbrushes, Book pages, Scissors, 3 cone trees, Yarn, Mini High-temp glue gun, Hot glue, Snowflake rhinestones, White ultrafine glitter

Instructions

  1. Cut the book pages into small squares.  Attach them to the cone trees with Matte Mod Podge by applying the Mod Podge to the back of the paper, position the paper onto the wreath and then top-coat with more Matte Mod Podge.  Allow to dry.  Once dry, top-coat one tree with Sheer Color Mod Podge Green and one tree with Sheer Color Mod Podge Green.
  2. Using hot glue to secure the ends and a few spots along the way.  Attach and wrap yarn around the each cone tree. This should look like garland.
  3. Make 18 (or more) Mod Melt gems by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high temp mini hot glue gun.  Squeeze the heated melt into the gem mold.  Allow to cool for 7 min.  Paint with Patina paint, Bayberry and Metallic Antique Copper.  (two coats) Top-coat with Mod Podge Sparkle or Extreme Glitter Silver.
  4. Using hot glue attach a snowflake rhinestone to the top-center of the gem. Attach the gems along the wrapped yarn on the trees.
  5. Attach the star tip to the Collage Clay bag.  Apply the Collage Clay along the base of the trees so it looks like snow. Sprinkle the clay with white glitter.  Add small dots of Collage Clay around the trees and embed a snowflake rhinestone into the clay by pressing them in.  Allow to dry.

PROJECT TIP: Transform Collage Clay into sparkling snow with whit ultrafine glitter.
