A Little Whimsy for the Holidays: How to Make My Three Favorite Basics for Ornaments

This video walks you through three of my favorite basic techniques for making ornaments. Each of these can be used in many different shapes as a base for additional decoration.

Here are some previous projects using these techniques:
Holiday Bird Ornament – https://dontpaintthecat.wordpress.com/2017/12/01/fanciful-utility-bird-ornament/
Tree Ornament: https://dontpaintthecat.wordpress.com/2015/12/21/this-years-christmas-ornament/
Babble Ornament (In Video): https://dontpaintthecat.wordpress.com/2015/11/26/bauble-ornaments-blog-cross-over/
Mitten and Stocking: https://dontpaintthecat.wordpress.com/2015/11/19/mitten-and-stocking-ornaments-blog-cross-over/

For the Pasteboard mentioned in the video, consider recycling when you can. Look at the backs of old notebooks and packing materials Pasteboard is available on Amazon, where it is called chipboard. I consider the 30 point to be light weight suitable doubled for ornaments. The 50 point is better for structural items like boxes.
