Unique DIY Wedding Invitation Christmas Ornament
What you’ll need:
- Glass/Plastic Ornament Ball
- Wedding Invitation
- Thin ribbon
- Heart and key embellishment (optional)
Crafting tip: use the same ribbon colour as the theme used at the wedding!
Firstly, using the ruler, measure and mark even lines, about half an inch wide. Use the pencil lightly to avoid making thick, heavy pencil lines. Cut along the marked lines to create strips of invite.
Secondly, wrap the strips of invitation around the pencil. Once the invite is completely wrapped around the pencil, wait a few seconds to allow the curl to take hold before letting go. Repeat this process with all the strips.
Cut three to four inch long pieces of ribbon and curl them with the scissors. If you cannot curl using the scissors (some will fray) use the pencil in a likewise way and wrap the ribbon around it.
Finally, remove the metal lid of the glass ball and add the curled strips of invite and ribbon. But, don’t use too much ribbon, for every three pieces of invite add one piece of ribbon. You certainly don’t want too much ribbon as it will mask the sight of the invite.
Replace the metal lid. Add a ribbon loop to the top and attach the heart and key charm (optional) and it’s finished!
