DIY Pretty Vintage-Style Ornaments!

Following is a fun Christmas Craft and guest post
by Nicole at Thrifty Decorating ~ enjoy!!

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!
