Manor House Creations - Christmas OTP Project

Hi Ladies,
Christmas is almost upon us, and at this time of the year I like to create a few special OTP Christmas projects to decorate my home and give as gifts.   I am always on the lookout for OTP items to alter and recently I purchased this rustic metal heart hanging at a gift store.  Some gorgeous Manor House Creations flowers, a few diecuts, a little paper and a couple of charms were all it took to transform this sweet little ornament into beautiful Christmas decor piece.

I love the mini glitter roses as they are perfect to add some sparkle to your Christmas creations.  To alter my heart I used the wire from the glitter mini roses to attach them by twining around the frame, then wrapped the left over metal stem around a paintbrush to curl.

I decided to use the new large Poinsettias as my main flower embellishment, but I wanted a contrast to the white glitter mini roses, so I pulled out the yellow stamens and misted the flowers with scarlet glimmermist to add a bit more sparkle.  I then replaced the yellow stamens with some green ones to match in with my Christmas colours.

I backed my heart with paper, embellished with some Kaisercraft collectables and a few charms with I altered with Viva Inca Gold paste and finished off with a bow.
