If you are like me, you are struggling with finding the right gift for all of your friends and family. Well, I couldn’t wait to share this great gift idea that I saw on a past Glendalough Manor brides’ Pinterest board! This simple do it yourself Christmas ornament is the perfect gift for someone who recently got married and the best part is that you make it! Everyone knows that some of the best gifts are handmade!
This ornament is made from the couples wedding invitation! All you have to do is take their wedding invitation and cut it in to thin strips. Curl it around a pencil so the paper strips form curls. Then put the strips of paper in to a glass ornament.
I love the idea of finding a charm that matches their colors, theme or maybe just their personality to tie on the top of the ornament. Finish the ornament with some ribbon in their wedding colors and you have created a beautiful, memorable ornament for the happily married couple!
If you don’t know anyone that recently got married you can use this same idea and use a baby shower invitation or graduation inviation….with almost any occasion and an invitation you can create an incredible keepsake for them to hang on their tree for years to come.
If you decide to make this for someone you know we would love to hear about it!
