Twelve Balls of Christmas! Day 3: Cameo & filigree


Welcome to our Christmas Ball
Just for crafters, one and all.
Smoothfoam balls rolled off the shelves
‘Cause we’ve been busy little elves.
We’re bloggin’ balls for twelve days through
To make the season bright for you!

Cameo Filigree Smoothfoam Ornament

1.  Paint a Smoothfoam ball with two coats of burgundy plus a coat of clear gloss medium to seal. Allow to dry in between each coat.

2.  Glue filigree trim around the ball, dividing it into four quarters, then glue oval filigrees in the center of each quarter. Glue a cameo to the center of each oval, with filigree arches above and below.

3.  Push beaded sequin pins into the ball as shown. Add beads to a longer pin to push in at the bottom of the ball. Push a long beaded eye pin into the top of the ball for hanging.
