Bottle Cap Christmas Ornaments

I got this idea in my head to make some Christmas ornaments from the Maya Road 4" Jumbo Bottle Caps (which, coincidentally are 25% off until the end of this month at AWDML). I came up with a few different ones, and I thought I'd post 2 of them today.

First up is one I made for May Arts' Ribbon Challenge.

May Arts sent 4 different ribbons and the challenge was to use those to create something with a Christmas theme. I used the 4 ribbons (the twine for hanging, the green twine on the Christmas tree, the red/brown ribbon that's filling in the bottle cap, and the brown multi-strand twine as the tree trunk). I also added 2 more ribbons from May Arts (the pleated cream for the tree and the black/cream striped for the bow) to complete the ornament.

Next is an ornament I made using Echo Park's Season's Greetings.

Season's Greetings is definitely one of my favorite Christmas collections this year. I rubbed some green Alcohol Ink onto the bottle cap to dull the color a bit. I also added some Stickles, pearls and rhinestones to complete the ornament. The ribbon on this ornament is from May Arts as well.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

I LOVE the one made will all ribbon! It must have been hard to get all that ribbon to adhere in the background and then to add more ribbon on top of it!?! Great work.
