Mexico Inspired Ornaments

I love everything about Mexico.  The color, the art, the architecture and the FOOD all make me fantastically happy!  It's part of why I love living in Los Angeles so much. Years ago I bought a painted, hand carved ornament in Mexico City and have always been inspired by it.  These are a cardboard and hot glue version of that ornament and I couldn't be happier with them.  Grab a few re•design with Prima silicone molds and you'll be making ornaments for the next 10 years!
We have tons of ornament DIYs coming your way so stay tuned and don't forget

Fabulous Frida!

Use images or just go for color!
Glue gun and tons of glue sticks
Images of Frida or sacred hearts
1.  Fill the re•design with Prima molds with hot glue
*I like to use 2 large glue guns with the big fat glue sticks so that I can fill them quickly
2.  Cut out hearts in cardboard
3.  Paint the pieces in bright colors
*I used Americana Acrylics in Bright Orange and Bright Green
4.  Cut out and glue an image in the center of one of your hearts
5.  Stencil around the image with DecoArt Matte Metallics in Vintage Brass
*I used a Tracy Moreau stencil for this ornament
6. Figure out the molded piece arrangement
7. & 8. Paint the pieces in more Americana Acrylics and let dry
9. & 10.  Dry brush the pieces with Matte Metallics 
11.  Glue the pieces to the cardboard
12.  Edge in E-6000 Dimensional Design Adhesive Paint in Gold Leaf
Fiesta Fantastic!
Feliz Navidad!
