When I was working on my Captain America Christmas Ornament I realized I haven’t made a single princess ornament this year. I still have many princesses left to cover, but it was nice to add Star Wars, Disney Parks and Marvel to my list of my DIY Disney Christmas Ornaments this year.
Glittery Captain America Christmas Ornament
To make your own Captain America ornament, you’ll need:
- A Flat Plastic Ornament
- Clear Acrylic Finish
- Fine Red Glitter
- Blue and White Glittered Cardstock
- Cut File
- Decoupage Medium
- Painters Tape
The first step is making a red glitter ornament. I used my favorite glitter ornament method, which involves pouring in a little clear acrylic finish, swirling it around, then letting it drain out while inverted over a cup for about 30 minutes. Then you pour in a little glitter, shake it around, and invert again overnight.
I used my Silhouette and my shield cut file and cut out the design two times each from both white and blue cardstock. I did this because cutting glittered card stock can be tricky and I wanted to have extras just in case. If you don’t have a Silhouette, it’s a simple design that you could cut by hand using scissors and a craft knife.
I assembled the shield from the pieces cut, using the extra rings to help me space things out on the ornament. I glued the outer ring of the shield to the ornament first with decoupage medium, holding it into place and smoothing it down as best I could. I then glued on the center blue circle and star. Once everything was in place, I covered it with painters tape to hold down the edges while it dried.
After the glue dried, I carefully peeled off the tape to reveal the shield.
You can also opt to use white and blue glitter vinyl for your ornament, which will save you the step of gluing. (I used what was readily available in my craft store, which was the cardstock.)
Wondering where you should hang your Captain America ornament? I recommend on your left. Get it? On your left?
