ABC Christmas Challenge - Y is for...

I have a little something for a mid-way reminder of our current ABC Christmas Challenge, where our theme this time is:

'Yippee - it's almost Christmas!'
(Anything Christmas goes!)

I've decorated some wooden tree ornaments (bought from Matalan), that I'm sending as a little gift with Christmas cards this year. I started by giving them all a couple of coats of metallic acrylic paint (gold, silver and bronze)...then varnished them with some glittery sparkly varninsh, and added some simple button twine to hang them with:

Here's a better view of the different designs:

The glitter doesn't show up very well in the photos...but they're lovely and twinkly in real life :0)

I'm also entering these into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
