Beautiful, Must Try Homemade Ornaments!

This year I participated in a home made ornament exchange at
White House Black Shutters.  I wanted to come up with an easy yet beautiful idea that I could share with all of you.

My first thought was I wanted to make something silver and shiny. That didn’t turn out well and to be honest I had made many failures before I found the perfect one to share with you.

So I changed my direction a little bit and chose something a lot less complicated.

I love the idea and the look of homemade snow flakes, but I wanted to make something a little different.  As I was pacing around my room and thinking about what to make, I started to clean up a bit so I wasn’t wasting too much time in the process.

While cleaning I stumbled upon an ornament just like this one!


Not knowing where it came from, I had a great idea! I will make this same exact ornament! lol Ok, so I cheated a little because I didn’t think of it myself but you have to admit that they are super cute! I found out later that my little sister had made it at her St. Nicolas Craft day party for her Home School Group (thanks Rachelle for the great idea).  I thought to myself, if a 12 year old can make it anyone can.


 I found some old music sheets and cut them into pieces. When cutting the paper make sure that there are 4 lines of notes.


Fold the paper into quarter or half inch folds. 


Fold in half.


Secure 2 ends with some sort of glue (I used a glue dot).


Like this!


And now the other side.


Continue these steps until you have as many as you want!

Here comes the easiest part, put them on your Christmas tree!

Have you ever made any ornaments?
What color is your Christmas tree?
