"Vintage" Ornaments. . . . .


I fell in love with THESE ornaments from Miss Mustard Seed and started thinking......could I mimic them?


I went to Michael's and found their fillable glass ornaments at 40% off!



I grabbed one of my old piano books.....yes, it already looked "vintage"....I didn't even need to age it!





I ran the music through my paper shredder until I had a pile of shredded strips....




I loved Miss Mustard Seed's, but I wanted to add a little bit of sparkle to mine...



Using regular glue and Martha's white gold glitter, I painted the tops with glue and shook on the glitter...





I am just loving how they turned out!



I can't wait to hang them on our tree!



Have you put up your tree yet??

Hi Nicole, Just got your message about Thursday and I wanted to thank you so much!

When I saw the shredded music my first thought was, I wonder if she hated that piece LOL.

I am also a classically trained pianist. There is some Rachmaninoff pieces that I use to play that I would gladly put through the shredder!
