Can you believe that Christmas is just a short 11 days from now? It seems like there is still so much to do, but this year I am trying my darndest to take a more relaxed approach, and am reminding myself that things don't have to be perfect!
Today I'd like to share with you some of my Christmas ornaments that I created for an Etsy customer, who is also a friend, and is so much fun to work with!
You know how much I love anything involving vintage sheet music, so this was a project that I thoroughly enjoy. Clear large round ornaments were filled with hand torn Christmas sheet music. While it would have been much easier to run the sheet music thru the shredder, I really prefer the random look of the hand torn pages. Plus, it was a fun project to do while watching tv!
I've been making this style of ornaments for the past few years, so I jumped at the chance to get to create them again! I've embellished them with pretty glittery silver snow flakes, as well as tiny white fabric flowers (that I've glittered, of course!). Believe it or not, the clear balls are plastic! Yes, they are! I think they really look as nice as glass, without the worry of breakage.
I topped them all off with my wonderfully crinkly seam binding. They look so pretty when hung from the tree!
I was asked to use red and aqua seam binding ribbon. I really love that twist on the traditional red and green!
I would love to have a bunch of these hanging from our tree!
I think they look so pretty heaped in my tiered wire basket!
I had so much fun playing with them in their "photo shoot", that I got a little carried away!
So I think I'm going to head out right after Christmas and buy a bunch of these clear ornaments on clearance, so I can make a big batch for us next year!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
