Last wedding season this was one of my go to gifts to give [idea found from Bridal Musings Blod–link below] along with the customized coasters from a previous posts on pinvestigation. I give this idea a 5/5 rating for thoughtfulness, price and originality.
– A mememto from the wedding (i like to use the save the date or wedding invitation)
– A clear glass/plastic bauble ornament (with a lid you can take off –i bought mine from Hobby Lobby)
– String and or ribbon to hang the ornament
– Any additional decorative touches such as glitter, ribbons and/or and “I Do” charm as seen in the picture above
How I made the ornament pictured above:
-cut the wedding invitation into this strips (I usually cut the strips according to size of the font/text size on the invitation so you can read the words on each strip)
-wrap/roll each individual strip around a pencil to make the paper curl or twist
-remove the top of the ornament and place each curled invitation strip into the ornament
-cap the ornament and decorate ( in the picture above I used ribbon that matched the invitation and picked up and wedding ” I Do” charm from Hobby Lobby.
This gift is not only great for weddings, but also anniversaries, birthdays, babyshower ect. This could also make for a fun day of crafting ornaments for your own personal christmas tree!
