Globecraft Memories Glitter Dome Ornament

I made a super fun globe in time for the fall season. Here in Hawaii though, it sure does not feel like fall. It is still hard to get into the fall spirit when it is 85 degrees, sunny, and the beach and palm trees are all around me. But in the little sliver of hope I went forward with the pumpkin theme and attempted to feel fall.


Supplies used:

Art Glitter: Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, 3D Embossit Adhesive, #53 Persimmon Ultrafine Opaque Glitter, #85 Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter, fine tips

Globecraft Memories: Create & Craft Ornament (Landscape), Piccolo Enamel Powder in 24K Gold

SEI Homestead Collection: Paper, Pearl, and Flower

Bella Creationz: Twine, Tag, and Clothespin

Helmar: Double stick adhesive

I started by cutting down paper to fit inside the frame. I used double stick adhesive and attached the paper to the frame.


Then did the same to the other side of the frame, so the pumpkin pattern was on each side.


My next step was to decorate the other two frames. I used Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and #53 Permission Opaque glitter and glittered one side of each frame.


I then took the 3D Embossit and a fine tip and created a scalloped pattern around the frame.


I poured on 24K Gold Enamel Powder, and shook it off. Of course, at this point, I forgot to take pictures, but I will explain. I let the 3D Embossit and Enamel Powder completely dry. Overnight to be exact. The next day, I heated it it back up with a heat gun and it created a metallic look to it.

So onto the next parts of my project.

I used the fine tip again and outlined one of the pumpkins with Designer Dries Clear. I then added Permission glitter again and shook it off.


Once dry, I added some twine from Bella Creationz, and clothespin and a decorated tag. I also added some Gold Tattered Angels Spray.


I turned it over, and added some twine to the back to make a loop so I could hang it.


I attached the globe and then the frame with Designer Dries Clear to the “front” side.


I flipped it over and added some Crystal Glitter to the back, and sandwiched on the globe, then the frame.



And Ta-Da! My finished Ornament for Fall!


Now be sure to stop by the Art Glitter blog to see a totally glittered necklace I made!

Thanks for stopping by, and sorry for the mess. I have been living in a hotel room the last month. I am eagerly awaiting my new craft room, which may be a few more months, but I keep on crafting.
