This is a sponsored post with ConsumerCrafts.com and Blueprint Social. All ideas and opinions are my own!

I’m a devout shopper from ConsumerCrafts.com, which is why I was so happy to be a part of this campaign with these frosted ornaments. This site has become one of my go-tos when it comes to crafty items big and small. For example: These glass cube ornaments I used for this tutorial. I’ve only been able to find the round ones at the store, but at Consumer Crafts they have a variety of shapes and sizes. I also found some of my favorite miniatures here too – there are more than 300+ pages of just micro items! I used some of them, as well as some that I had in my own supplies, to make these fun glass cube ornaments!

Mini-sequins

Clean your ornament, then apply a small piece of double-sided adhesive to the back. Wrap the ornament with the twine. This will give it some color!

Knead the frosting in the tube and then squeeze it out onto the top of the ornament. You can go in a square or circle, however you want!

Choose your miniatures. I collect these, I have a bunch from Mexico! You can make your own from polymer clay or buy them.

Press your items into the faux-frosting. Sprinkle on some sequins, press them into place.

Let your ornaments dry overnight, two days if you live in a humid climate.
