Verve August Project Parade

So it's the last day of the August Project Parade and I've finally finished my project! For August, the project is "Happiness for Hostess". I decided to go with a Christmas theme on my project:

I took a small paint can and altered it with paper & ink. Then I pulled out some old wood ornaments that I never painted - LOL! I painted them first, then added paper and some embellishments. Here is a closer look at them:

I distressed the edges with ink on both the ornaments and the can. Together they make a great gift set for a Christmas party hostess!!
