Have any of you been wondering how I found some of the most talented crafters for HMA's Christmas series? Well, I can tell you exactly when I fell in love with today's guest blogger.  I was googling ideas for homemade decor when I just happened to come across these Anthropologie-inspired blooms at Homemade Ginger.  As soon as I saw them I just knew I had to ask Megan, the mastermind behind the chic flowers, to be a part of this series.  Then, as I read her "about me" page something popped out at me:

"He {God} has given me every ability and continues to form and shape me daily.  We create because God creates." -Megan from Homemade Ginger
I just love that! We create because God creates.  Simply stated and completely true.  So, for reasons on many levels, I am happy to introduce you to Megan today!

Hello Happily Mother After readers! I blog over at Homemade Ginger and I'm so honored to be guest posting today.  I love crafting, sewing, cooking and anything else "homemade".  Right now I'm in the middle of a year long series called the 30 Days Project, where I'm challenging myself to something different each month. Feel free to stop by and say hi!

I'm excited to share an easy ornament project with you all today!

It's a great way to make a personalized gift for someone...or for your own tree! These are the supplies you'll need:

You will need some letter stickers and any other shape that you want to add to your ornament (I did dots and stars), a glass ornament, a sponge brush and some etching cream.

First, you will make your design on your ornament with the stickers.  You could do a monogram, polka dots, your last name or anything your heart desires!

Next, you will brush on a thick layer of the etching cream.

Let it sit for a few hours.  I actually forgot about mine and it sat overnight and it turned out great! You just don't want to remove the cream too soon.

Then, wash off the cream and peel off your stickers and you have a beautiful etched ornament!

Tie a pretty ribbon on the top and you're done!

Happy crafting and thanks for having me!


Those ornaments are just darling, Megan! Thank you so very much for sharing this tutorial with us today.  I am putting these down on my to-create list right now! What a precious personalized gift to give someone you love this season.

Be sure to check back Monday for {Day 8} of the 12 Crafty Days of Christmas series.  
Happy Weekend!
