Today, we’re featuring a DIY wedding invitation ornament project! In today’s economy, we’re all looking for ways to give meaningful, holiday gifts….without breaking the bank. If you’re like me, your holiday gift list seems to be getting longer and longer every year. And if you’re planning a wedding, you probably don’t have a lot of extra moolah at your disposal. So…if you have a drawer full of old wedding invitations (and maybe even some baby shower invitations)…you can now put them to good use!
Check out this fabulous DIY ornament project that doesn’t require a lot of time, materials, or even skill. Now, that’s MY kind of project!
Getting Started –
1. Simply cut an invitation into quarter inch (1/4″) strips. Make sure you capture the key details (dates/names) when you cut your strips.
2. Next, you will roll your 1/4 inch strips around a pen (printed side facing out). If you are working with a heavier card stock, you may need to roll each strip around the pen a few times.
3. Take the top of a standard glass ornament off and insert all of your 1/4″ rolled strips into the ornament.
4. If you want to add a little embellishment, you could add a wine charm and/or ribbon to the ornament. You’re done! Now you have a unique, personalized gift for that special someone on your holiday list. Don’t forget to make one for yourself too…if you’re soon to be married!
