Pictures of cherubs and textcold use old book pages
One Step Crackle
Paint to mix with gelbrown, black, gray, etc
Cut cherub pictures and text out of the calendars.
To make the holes for the hangers cover the top of each rectangle with painter's tape and drill a small hole. Use a toothpick to bore it out and sandpaper to smooth it.
Trace rectangles onto the text sheets on an angle. You will need 4 all together, 2 for each rectangle, front and back. Trim the paper so that some of the wood still shows and distress the edges of the paper with Distress Ink. Allow ink to dry then decoupage the text onto the rectangles.
Sand the edges of the cherub pictures to rough them up and decoupaged them over the text on the rectangles.When the decoupage medium is dry apply a coat of One Step Crackle. A thick coat will produce larger cracks, while a thin coat will produce finer cracks. Do not overwork, paint it on and leave it. The crackle coat needs 2-4 hours to dry.
Add lace trim around the back of the costume jewelry using a hot glue gun.
Mix your antiquing gel and preferred color of paint together. Paint the mixture directly over the entire rectangle and use a soft cloth to wipe it back. This will remove the stain from the surface and leave the stain in the cracks. Use can use a damp cloth and gently rub it over to make the stain more subtle.
Hot glue the lace trimmed jewel to the corner of the ornament and make a lace bow to attach to the bottom. Use E6000 for this step.
Add a twine hanger.
