May Arts, Tattered Angels, & Kimberly Jones, Oh My!

This amazing project is from the May Arts blog and is an idea by the brilliant Kimberly Jones! It’s fantastic for any holiday or just as a fun decoration for any room : )
First you’ll need some Tattered Angels products – your favorite Glazes, Mists, and Glams (they used Partridge in a Pear Tree, Blue Glimmer Mist, Wicked Glaze, and Blizzard Glam. You will also need some May Arts Ribbon, paint brushes, and a string of lights.
Here are instructions and photos by Kimberly Jones:

I made 2 sizes of ribbon flowers. You will need 1 yard of ribbon for each large bloom and 18” of ribbon for each small bloom. I made 12 of each size. Tie a knot in the end of each ribbon and then pull one of the wires on the other end to gather the ribbon tightly. Tie the wire into a knot and leave a 3” tail of wire as shown.

Wrap the gathered ribbon around a pencil to form a flower. Using a pencil will create a center hole for inserting the blooms onto the garland light bulbs. Wrap the wire tail around the knot in back of the ribbon to secure it together.

Saturate the large blooms with blue glimmer mist, and then add a light spritz of the Partridge in a Pear Tree mist. For the small blooms, do the opposite. Add some green Wicked Glimmer Glaze to the center of each bloom. Use a paint brush to pick up glitter from the bottom of the Blizzard Glimmer Glam bottle and brush it all over each bloom. Shake the bottles of glimmer and glaze frequently to get the best shimmer. The Glimmer Glam should not be shaken at all, so that the glitter stays on the bottom and is easier to load up on the paint brush. Set the blooms aside to dry.

Carefully insert one of the light bulbs through the center of each bloom. Try to keep the bulb from touching the ribbon and never leave the garland plugged in while unattended.

Do you have a lot of leftover ribbon or ribbon off the roll? Take care of it with a Ribbon Ring and Mini Ribbon Iron.
