Christmas Ornaments with Reindeer Bells and Twinkle

Been busy today getting these ornaments out of my head.  I was in Hobby Lobby while I was on vacation and bought a package of cute little "photo" craft ornaments that I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with and last night it struck me... they would be perfect for shaker ornaments!
So the frame already had a kind of well in it that was just deep enough for the shaker, but I decided to add a little bit more depth and put some foam tape under the glitter/acrylic square I made using the acrylic piece that came with the ornament as a photo cover and some glitter paper.  On this one I covered the frame with paper using modge podge and then painted over it with enamel glitter paint.  For the inside,  I used the oh so cute Reindeer Bells set stamped on a watercolor background.  I filled it with some Paper Sweeties sequins including the new snowflake ones that are a limited offering in her shop. 

On this one, I painted the frame with some Rusty Paper paint I got a couple months ago and used last month's Stamp of the Month to heat emboss the sentiment.. added a few extras to the top... I think it makes a nice rustic looking ornament... also used a Paper Sweeties rusty those!

Thanks for stopping and don't forget to come back tomorrow for Atlantic Hearts!

So creative the idea of shaker ornaments, really pretty! I'm struggling to make any thing at the time and no mojo ( nothing is working) :(

These ornaments are adorable! I especially love the little reindeer! I haven't done any shaker thingys, I've been afraid they wouldn't turn out right :-(
