February "Junk"le Bells

I decided to follow along with Jill and show you some of my silverware ornies....


These are pretty easy and fast to do! Prep your metal, then paint a band of flesh color(2coats). Next add cheeks and dot eyes. I also add a dot of flesh color for the nose in between the cheeks. Add a band of red for the hat. Use texture paste to add the hat brim, pom pom and beard. I use a toothpick to swirl in the design. Antique over the beard areas to get definition. Spray with Krylon. Use wire to make hanger, add a rusty bell and finish off with a bit of fabric.

With all the extra silverware parts laying around our house I needed to come up with ways to use all the scrap......


This is about the same face I used on the Santa knives. I can't come up with a better picture of the knives so maybe this will help you with them. This pattern is from one of my favorite artists Renee' Mullins from Plum Purdy.

  1. Very cute! I can't imagine being able to paint a face. Mine would probably be cross eyed! Glad you joined up!
