MDF Bauble

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I am into the last week at school before the Christmas holiday. There is a lot to remember to do. All our cards are posted but I did find that I didn't have enough cards for the people at work this is because the team I am in has expanded. So I have been frantically making some quick cards. I can't quite bring myself to buy some from a shop.

When we went to the Portsmouth Craft show, back in October,  I was rather taken by some MDF baubles that came with lights. I bought two but I have only decorated one so far.

The bauble has four layers and I painted each layer separatley with arylic paint.  The nice thing about the layers is that they give dimension and you can change the order and the way round they are. 

To add some interest I put glue over the snowflakes and added some clear glitter. 

I added a bow and some holly to the bottom of the bauble. 

Here you can see the lights. 

Here are the lights in the dark. This bauble is now hanging up in our dining room and it looks very nice there too. 

Enjoy the rest of the week

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
