Fox & Mouse Sharpie Ornaments Video Tutorial:
Step 1. Create a large U shape on the ornament with the bronze Sharpie...
Step 2. Give your fox a set of ears and nose. (It's a little hard to explain...just try to create the shape I did! The video does a good job of showing this step.)--Think a Batman mask!
Step 3. Use the black Sharpie to add an oval for a nose, 2 upside down Us for eyes, and eyelashes.
Step 1. Create a raindrop shape on the ornament with a silver Sharpie.
Step 2. Add 2 ears to the top of the raindrop shape.
Step 3. Add an oval with your black Sharpie to the bottom of the raindrop shape for the nose. Add a few whiskers. And, of course, 2 ovals for eyes.
Optional: Fill in the ears a bit with the gold Sharpie.
Bear & Owl Sharpie Ornaments Video Tutorial:
Step 1. Use the bronze Sharpie to create an oval towards the bottom of the Ornament.
Step 2. Use the silver Sharpie to create what looks like the top of a heart shape directly above the bronze oval. These will make the bear's eyes.
Step 3. Use the black sharpie to add 2 ovals for the eyes, a nose, and a mouth.
Optional: Use the silver Sharpie to add additional ovals to the eyes and nose, as well as "whisker spots."
Step 1: Use the gold Sharpie to create a large circle around the ornament.
Step 2. Continue using the gold Sharpie to create the top of the owl's head (the shape created will look similar to the top of a heart).
Step 3. Use the silver Sharpie to add 2 large circles for the eyes.
Step 4. Use the bronze Sharpie to create a triangle nose from one eye to the other.
Step 5. Use the black Sharpie to add small circles to the eyes.
