{Mixed Media Tutorial} Helen's Mixed Media Coffee Wood Slice Ornament

Hello everyone... Helen here. Christmas is just around the corner now and I don't know about you, but everyone in our house is excited, especially the kiddos for sure :D

It's no secret that my husband and I are coffee lovers... and I think we need another coffee theme ornament this year. Today, I have a tutorial how to make this mixed media coffee wood slice ornament. I used 3" pre-drilled wood slice that I got from Amazon for this project.

First, add some gesso on the wood slice surface using flat brush or foam brush. Let it completely dry.

Add the texture/modeling paste on the wood with the Dot's 'n Beans stencil using the palette knife (or old credit card will work, too). 

While the texture paste still wet, sprinkle some clear glitter embossing powder. And heat set the embossing powder with craft heaters. Do not over heat it because the gesso and texture paste can start to bubble. Apply thin coat of Mod Podge or Gel Medium and let it dry.

Stamp the coffee cup from the What's Brewing stamp set with archival black ink pad on red cardstock and white cardstock. Add some silver metallic watercolor splatter on the red cup. Fussy cut the red cup, and fussy cut just the lid and sleeve from the white cardstock. Add the lid and sleeve on top of the red cup with adhesive glue.

Add the cup on top of the wood slice ornament with gel medium and add some thin coat on top of the cup also to seal it. Then cut the coffee word using the coffee word die out of metallic cardstock. Add the coffee word die cut on top of the cup with gel medium and also add some thin coat on top of the cup also to seal it.

Add the twine on the ornament and tie it up. It is done. I hope you enjoy this tutorial and can try it to make your own personalized ornaments for this holiday season.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a fabulous day!
