I love the holidays and love to decorate in new ways each year. This month, I'm creating a mirrored ornament with etchall® etching crème and a new product - etchall® stencil spray.
Before I received the etchall® stencil spray, I would have to use an adhesive-backed stencil. Now, I can use any stencil. I found some small square and round mirrors at my local JoAnn's craft store. They come in a wide variety of sizes and are lightweight enough to make into a ornament.
To start, I followed the directions on the back of the stencil spray and sprayed the back of the stencil. I let it dry and applied it to a square mirror. I smoothed the stencil down and masked any exposed mirror with masking tape.
Here are my ornaments. I have added some adhesive jewel strips and a loop of thread. I also glued cardstock over the loop to cover the back.

I hope you'll give these quick ornaments a try. Get the whole family involved! Have a neighborhood crafting party! You can find all sorts of small mirrors at your local craft store and the etchall® products on the etchall® website. Be sure to check out the specials and etchall® is now available on Amazon!
Wishing you very happy holidays and a Merry Christmas!
