DIY Invitation Ornament

This last year numerous friends of ours celebrated momentous occasions in their lives. This year as part of their gifts I created a holiday ornament made of their invitations and announcements. I made several but I'd like to keep their ornament a surprise until we exchange next week. I'd like to share the ornament I made to celebrate our wedding.


As many of you know my husband and I were married in April. We had plenty of left over wedding invitations, direction cards, and RSVP cards. I kept my bouquet as well. This was super easy to create. I purchased a glass ornament from Michael's and started filling up the ornament some of my dried wedding flowers. I started to cut long stripes with all the cards I mentioned above. I rolled them around a pencil. When I had a good spiral and the bottom layer of the ornament was filled with flowers I added in spirals. I topped the ornament off with a gold bow and popped it on the tree!



Simple but so meaningful. I love ornaments with meaning. This one is perfect. I just hope my friends love the ones I made for them as much as I love this one.


Have a wonderful weekend!
