I did a peacock challenge on youtube. I decided to share them with you. These are being sent to Kelly Walkemol for her peacock tree.
I got these flowers from Michaels. They are Recollections brand. I know totally not in season but I adore the colors, and sent hubby back to the store today to get another tin of them lol. All you need for this is flowers, hot glue and a round(ish) piece of paper, this is from packing so its a little thick. 

Fold the flower in half and half again and put a little hot glue on the point and lay onto circle.

I do three on this one, but on another flower I will be posting later I used four. This tin came with two sizes of flower, I used the big on the bottom, then the slightly smaller ones on top. 

I added a bit of pearl trim between the layers on this one. What I love is that these flowers are so full I dont even need to add anything to the middle of them. 

Here I added a bit of lace to hang it with

and I added a circle from this Jingle Bell Paper. 

This ornament I did with the circles, I used my Martha Stewart circle cutter. This one is so simple. I cut out three inch circles. I use five different papers, 4 circles apiece. I tried this the way the tutorial said with hot glue, hated it, so started over using Tombow mono multi glue, liked that much better. I added charms just by hot gluing the chain in the middle before closing it, and added some pearls for a hangar. I then added purple lace at the top. 

close up of the charms. I used that ornament charm on two different ones, its from Blue Moon Beads, got it at Big lots for under a dollar, how cool was that. 

This one I went literal with the peacock lol. The peacock is from K and Co. I used a wooden tag, added some more jingle bell paper, then added some chain with a bell and that Blue Moon Charm.
