Decking The Halls {Wedding Invitation Ornament}

Although this is technically our 2nd Christmas, David and I finally have "Our First Christmas" Ornament! I pinned this great ornament made from a wedding invitation and thought this would be a perfect addition to our Christmas tree!!
I started with two wedding invitations and cut one in horizontal strips (so you could read each line) and one cut vertical (for longer curls).
I then wrapped the strips around an ink pen to make the curls and put each one in the ornament.

The ornament turned out great and it will be special for David and I for years to come!

  1. I love this! I have a bazillion leftover wedding invites, programs, etc from our wedding. I am totally doing this! And I will probably make a few for my family as well! Love! Great idea. :)
