Christmas Tree Ornament

This month the Gecko Galz  DT are making Christmas ornaments, every couple of days one is being showcased, today it's my turn to have my ornament showcased.
I have made a Christmas tree decoration using a wooden bauble blank.

Image from the Gecko Galz Old Fashioned Christmas Collage Sheet.
Gecko Galz Holly Days Background Paper.
A Wooden Christmas Bauble Blank.
Green Acrylic Paint.
Americana Dura Clear Matte Varnish.
Sizzix Festive Greenery Strip Die.
Green and Gold Card.
Ice Stickles.
Red Beads and red ribbon.
Paint the wooden bauble green.
Adhere the Image to the front and the background paper to the back of the bauble, then cover with a couple of coats of the varnish.
Die cut a couple of flourishes with the gold card and some holly leaves with the green card, adhere them to the bauble, then add the beads.
Put some stickles on the holly and on the holly round Santas head.

When the stickles are dry add the ribbon.

This is the back of the ornament.
