Boho Heart Ornaments DIY

My tree is all about bright colors this year and these soft, boho heart ornaments are just the ticket to make it POP!  I used neon colors on my Gel Press and embellished them with glitter Allure from 
E-6000.  I'm excited to be bucking tradition this year and going nuts with a tree that is filled with things that make me feel the joy of the season.  I say, do what makes you happy and
don't forget to Make Your Mark!
