While most of you are outside basking in the Summer’s warmth…
some of us are inside thinking “cool” thoughts.
As you know… I love participating in the Designer Craft Connection’s Monthly Design Challenges.
The theme for the Challenge was Christmas in July.
This month’s Manufacturer Design Challenge was sponsored by Robin’s Nest and Smoothfoam.
My project for the challenge is a simple ornament using a small Smoothfoam Wreath
and a variety of dew drops, tear drops, diamond drops and trim from Robin’s Nest.
To Make the Wreath:
- Apply a layer of embossing paste or Snowtex to cover the front and sides of the wreath.
- Allow time for the paste to fully dry before continuing.
- Glue tear drops and dew drops on the front of the wreath with a good liquid craft glue.
- Glue trim around outside of the wreath. I originally had no trim on the outside of the wreath. By adding the decorative trim around the outside it gave me the pop of green that I needed to accent the wreath.
- Next…Punch or cut a 3″ circle from red glitter cardstock. Find the center of the circle and start forming the snowflake pattern using 12 diamond drops. Glue small metallic dew drop in the center of the snowflake.
- Glue hanger on the back of the wreath before adding the red snowflake circle.
A Big Thanks to Smoothfoam and Robin’s Nest for providing the products to work with.

Thanks Tracy. I’m glad you liked it. You should give it a try.
Sue this ornament is so wonderful. I love all the dewdrop accents that bring the holly and snowflakes to life. Can’t wait to get home to break out my bottle of glittered embossing paste and cut up the rest of my smoothfoam into fun ornaments. I’ve got it in white and red… thanks for the fabulous ideas 🙂
I’m glad you like the ornament. I can’t wait to see what you come up with Susan.
