#220 - Rocking Horse 
Doily Christmas Ornament
Paper Casting Project

A unique and charming gift to celebrate baby's first Christmas!
#220 - Rocking Horse

Materials Needed:
1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp:  #220 - Rocking Horse
100% Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Cotton Linter)
2 paper castings* - #220 - Rocking Horse (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions)
Clear acrylic varnish
1 crochet or tatted doily or snowflake, stiffened (see How to Stiffen Doilies)  
Paint (optional)
Glitter (optional)
Ribbon to weave through doily (optional)
Ribbon, thread or clear fishing line (to be used as a hanger)

Note: Doilies can be purchased at craft stores, fabric stores, and many other places, especially at Christmastime. Also look for small doilies in the doll-making section of your craft store.

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from clay instead of paper (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions). The choice is yours.
1.  Apply a coat of varnish to the medallions and let dry.
2.  Apply a coat of varnish to the already stiffened doily to make it stronger and block it out until dry.
3.  Optional:  Paint the medallions and let dry.
4.  Optional:  Add varnish to areas on the medallions where you want glitter, then sprinkle glitter on while varnish is still wet. Let it dry. Then apply a final coat of varnish to secure the glitter.
5.  Glue 2 medallions to the doily, one on each side.
6.  Optional:  Weave ribbon through the holes in the doily for added decoration.
7. Make a loop of ribbon, thread or clear fishing line and tie a knot. Glue it onto the top of the ornament and let it dry thoroughly before hanging. 
An Easy Project for Kids:
This is a good children’s project and you get good results. Children can cut paper snowflakes instead of using the crochet snowflakes. Origami paper has beautiful colors and it is easy to fold. You can fold it several times, then cut out bells, trees, stars, etc. Kids are fascinated by that and often do paper cutting at school using just plain white paper. You can encourage them to cut small, simple snowflakes if they are just learning.
