An Aqua and White Ornament

DAY 2 of Ornaments!

YAY!

This one is definitely a favorite.

One word:  Aqua





For the non-traditional
an aqua and white color scheme 
is breath-taking in its simplicity.


For this ornament, 
I placed a bleached bottle brush tree inside the ornament.

(Don't ask how.  Tedious.  And may have had me muttering a few words.)

Glitter...

Faux snow...

A few pearl beads...

Sprinkled inside.

(That part was a snap.)

;)



I love the contrast between the off-white of the bottle brush 
and the pure white of the faux snow.



I wrapped a light aqua ribbon around the ornament topper and glued on a bow of the same color.

The bow is embellished with a simple white button.

To hang the ornament, I attached a loop of white crocheted lace.


So cute!

And I am super digging the aqua and white!

How about you?

Do you like more traditional colors of Christmas
or do you like to change it up a bit?


Dream Big,

  2. This is sooo beautiful, I want it! My sitting room is done in aqua and white. It is my favorite color combo! Beautiful job. And the tree looks very hard to fit inside the ornament! I would be saying some bad words too, lol.

  3. I love the aqua and white. Such beautiful and classy colors together. I actually used those same colors on my tree last year along with old black and white family photos clipped to the branches. Probably my favorite tree ever.

    You certainly made a beautiful ornament.
