I wish I had come up with this idea on my own because I love it! But of course not. Where do all creative ideas come from lately? You got it….Pinterest. I love a tree filled with personal ornaments that actually have meaning to them. On our honeymoon in Atlantis I bought a really pretty ornament that had been dipped in sand and had tiny little seashells on it.
So when I saw on Pinterest that someone had cut up strips of their wedding invitation and put them into a clear ornament, I was sold! What a great idea and a great way to add some newlywed bliss to the Christmas tree 🙂
The clear ornaments were easy to find. I bought a set of 4 from Hobby Lobby for $5.99. Instead of doing 4 identical ornaments made with our invitation, I decided to make 2 with the invitation and 2 with our wedding programs. And, of course, I topped them off with some burlap strands!
I’m so happy how they turned out!
If you look closely you can read our names, our wedding attendants, songs that played during our ceremony…all the little details that make a wedding day so special!
