My first ornament was inspired by the vintage red camp lanterns that are so perfect for rustic Christmas decor. The Rusty Lantern die from Tim Holtz is one of my favorite dies from last year. It's one that I didn't have a chance to use when it came out, so I decided to dust it off and try a new technique. I wanted the finish to look like paint that was worn and rusted in some places. Here's how I made it:
All of the supplies I used to create my vintage-inspired lantern ornament can be found at Simon Says Stamp and Amazon via the links below.
Thanks SO much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the rusty paint tutorial as much as I enjoyed making it. Tomorrow I'll have another fun ornament and technique...I'll see you then!
