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