I’m addicted. To Christmas crafting. Honestly, it’s kind of obsessive. My friends think I’m crazy, but hey! There are WAY worse things to be addicted to, right? Look at the things I’ve made in the past month:
Scared yet? In answer to common questions, I have no idea how I find time to make this stuff. I have a life. I go to school. I participate in school activites. And I find ample time to bake, read, and, of course, craft. I guess the timing issue will remain one of the great mysteries of life.
Anywho, our first craft of the season are these darling little ornaments made of vintage sheet music and glitter.
The ornaments are simple to make but take a while as they need time to dry, once in the middle of the project and then again at the end. Create a bunch to give as a small gift to loved ones this Christmas season. Family and friends will be delighted with them and touched that you made them. To begin, you will need a plain, glass ornament, glue, old sheet music or music paper, silver glitter, a paint brush, and ribbon.
First, rip the music into small, nickel size pieces. Using glue, cover the ornament with them and let dry. Mix together glue and glitter and apply a thin coat of the mixture to the ornament. Remove the silver covering on top of the ornament. Cover it in glue then dip in glitter. Let dry then replace over the hole in the top of the ornament. When everything is no longer wet, use a matching ribbon to hang directly on the tree or set aside to wrap and give as a gift.
