Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Vintage Victorian Poinsettia Ornament


This “Vintage Victorian Poinsettia ornament” was inspired by a project I found here on Pinterest.  The original used lace and a foam ball, I opted to give it a try with Makin’s Clay® and a Smoothfoam™ ball.    They used stain to color their ornament, but I used DecoArt®’s Americana Decor Creme Wax for a similar effect. 

Materials: 

3” Smoothfoam™ ball 
Makin’s Clay® - white or natural 
Makin’s® Christmas Nature push mold 
Beacon™ 3-in-1 Adhesive 
DecoArt® Americana Decor™ Creme Wax - Golden Brown
ART Mechanique satin ribbon
scissors 




Instructions:

Use Christmas Nature push mold and white or natural Makin’s Clay® to make several poinsettias in both sizes. 


Mount poinsettias to Smoothfoam™ ball, with petals touching as closely as possible, with Beacon™ 3-in-1 adhesive.  Let dry 24 hours.  Leave hole in ball uncovered for ribbon.


Apply Golden Brown DecoArt® Americana Decor™ Creme Wax to entire ball.  While still wet, use damp paper towel to wipe away, leaving was only in recessed areas and slightly staining clay. 



Add green satin ribbon loop into hole on top of ornament.  Glue in place with 3-in-1.   Tie bow bow with same ribbon around loop.
