12 Days of Christmas - Day 7

Hello - I am super late with today's post.  I have to say I was super excited about this project when I found it on Pintrest which lead me to this blog.  I saw them and knew I'd have to do these.

I am sad, they didn't come out very well.  I thought I used the correct paint and I did it like they said on the blog but, well, you'll see....

As you can see in the reindeer the paint didn't stay smooth, solid coverage but I had to chuckle - the streaking mess and separation of the paint made him look like he has lashes and a cute expression.  I freehanded the antlers from felt and then used some distress ink to color them.  I colored some pearls with a black (100) Copic  marker for his eyes.  I added a blob of hot glue and covered it with red flocking for his nose.  Added a bow to finish it off a little.

The Santa ornament looks better, but it's very transparent.  I'm happier this with one.

So if anyone has some tips and tricks on how to make these better, please let me know.  Thanks for stopping by.

HA! I think they are very cute, and I'm super impressed that you are crafting before Christmas. I'm doing good to just keep my head above water and finish the shopping (which I think has now been accomplished -- just need to finish wrapping). I also very much like the candles in your previous blog. Well done and Merry Christmas to you.
