Beautiful Personalized Wedding Invitation Christmas Ornament

I have been getting a new Christmas tree ornament every year since my husband and I started spending Christmas’s together.  A new decoration to represent special traditions, milestones and inside jokes.  One of my favourite ornaments is our Wedding Invitation Christmas Ornament because it’s a way to display our invite in a creative and beautiful way.

If you’re like me you likely have a ton of extra wedding invitations left over from the big day…better to have had extra then not enough, am I right?  So, what’s better then to bring one out every Christmas to admire and remember.

 

I also try to make these for each of my friends that get married.  I keep the invitation, even if I receive it in the spring, and turn it into one of these special tree ornaments.  They are always surprised when they see what’s inside the glass ball.

1.  Take the wedding invitation and cut it into strips.  Use the ruler and pencil to make straight and even strips.  I know, it feels wrong to cut up the invite…but trust me, it’ll be worth it!  Cut some ribbon also, about 2-3 inch strips.

2.  Wrap the strips of invitation around your pencil.  Once completely wrapped, wait a few seconds to allow the curl to take hold before letting go.  Repeat this process with all the strips and the ribbon.

3.  Place the curled strips into the glass ball by removing the metal top.  Add the curled ribbon strips every now and then to create some texture.  Crafting tip: use the same colour theme that was used at the wedding!
4.  Replace the metal lid.  Add a ribbon loop to the top and attach the heart and key (optional) and it’s finished!
