I have been holding on to my MD Sheet Metal waiting for the perfect time to whip it out. With the holiday season officially upon us, I decided it was time to do something festive with my metal.
I looked long and hard at the mosaic metal design trying to figure out what I could make. At first, I was thinking of making a festive candle holder out of my metal. Then, when I looked at the design I somehow saw a snowflake. Yes, a snowflake! What can I say, my mind is crazy! After I saw the snowflake design, I wanted it to have dimension. So, I added a design of 4 mosaics on top of my 9 mosaics, bending them up so they looked kind of like petals. I was going to leave my snowflake silver, until I saw we had some white American Crafts Spark Glitter. The shape of this glitter is long and narrow, unlike traditional glitter that is round. To finish my ornaments, I added a red piece of twine so I could hang them on my tree.
Would you have guessed these ornaments were made out of metal?
