DIY Christmas: Keepsake Ornaments & Cinnamon Crafts

DIY Christmas

My new favorite gift to make and give | Keepsake Ornaments

Keepsake Ornament

If you have attended any weddings recently and still have the invitation or any party favors from the wedding this is a must do! Quick, simple and memorable. I had the pleasure of attending two amazing weddings this year and now I get to give a gift to my friends that they can have forever.

What you need:

  • Clear, empty round ornaments (Michael’s sells them in packs or singles in all different sizes)
  • The invitation and glitter or any other fillings you would like to add.

Keepsake Ornamanets

Start by cutting the invitation into very thin pieces. Depending on the material of the invitation you can curl it around your finger or with scissors. Fill the ornament with the sliced paper. Add glitter or any other decorations you would like. For one of the ornaments I added a couple of the matches that were given away on their special day. Add a hanger or a pretty piece of decorated string and gift. I guarantee this will be a gift they will cherish forever.
