eiffel tower ornament tutorial (made on the silhouette)

 
 



 i love anything to do with Paris and France so i was so inspired when i saw these


via Lucy at craftberry bush check out her tutorial


via pinterest

so i decided to make my own i hunted every were for a Eiffel tower ornament but could not find one so i made my own
i used an Eiffel tower shape from the silhouette
 i cut them on white card then stuck two together, then i painted them silver.
i used some candle baubles to put them in, so i cut a circle of card to slip in and glued the tower on to it, then i glued some little trees, i made them by cutting the end off a branch from my artificial garland and then trimmed it into a tree shape, i then glued them on. i covered the rest of the circle of card with some glue and covered it with faux snow then i just slid it inside the bauble

  1. J'adore!!! the Eiffel Tower is part of my everyday landscape and I'm never tired of seeing it! My toddler also loves her above all when she sparkles for 5 minutes every hours! ( that could be weird but I said "she" because we call her la Dame de fer that means the Iron Lady ). I pinned it to make it later for him! I'm saying bonjour from se much ado linky.
