Something Christmasy

On my early days of Pinterest searching I came across a way to display my wedding invitation during Christmas:


My finished product on our tree!

It seemed fairly easy without much hassle. (Spoiler alert: It was easy!) And being a newlywed, I didn’t have a ton of Christmas decorations.

Ingredients Needed (haha):
Plastic Empty Ornament – found for about $1 at ACMoore
Wedding Invitation
Scissors
Pen

Steps:
-Cut your invitation into strips. Throw away any areas without wording, unless your invite is small and you want to fill up the ball
-Twist individual strips on a pen or your finger so they get curly (make sure the wording faces you so it will be visible in the ornament)
-Place the curled strips in the ball
-Attach the top and hang on your tree

And you’re finished! Told you it was easy!!
It’s perfect for your own tree or a present for your newly married friends!

Inspiration was from http://christyrobbins.blogspot.com/2011/07/wedding-invitation-ornament.html

Make sure you show me your finished project!
