I made the ornament the same way you see in the zillion tutorials online, using pledge/future floor finish (just pour it in, swirl it around gently to get an even coating, then pour it out... let it drain for a couple mins and then dump in some fine glitter... Martha Stewart's is great, cover the hole and shake like crazy, then pour out the excess. I cut the pumpkin face with black outdoor (Oracal 651 vinyl) and just placed it by hand. I made my own custom color ribbon using my distress inks and then used three of the new gorgeous Trendy Twine colors to make a 2nd bow. Oh I also used a bic marker to color the ornament top green, next time I'll try my alcohol inks for better coverage.
I must also comment on the candle holder it's resting on. Don't you love it? It's from the $1 store!!! All I did was paint it first with a coat of my beloved Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze and then I added a light coat of Krylon Glitter Blast (eeeekkk love that stuff, I want every color!). Took about 2 mins total and dried super fast too.
I hope I've inspired you to think outside the Christmas ornament :)
