Joyful Creations

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

     Today was such a fun festive day. I got to do a progressive tea with my sisters and my auntie. Each lady prepared a tea sandwich and tea to share at their home. It was so fun to see each lovely home decorated in festive decorations. Each day this week I will share pictures of each lovely home. We also did an ornament exchange at each home, and this is the ornament I made for the exchange.

I just love using my old music paper. It has been such a theme this Christmas with my creations.

I ran a piece of sheet music through my shredder to get thin pieces of paper to put into the ornament. 

I put the pieces of paper inside of the ornament. 

I also added a bit of sparkly glitter inside of the ornament

I wanted to add a bit of color so I took double sided tape and wrapped it around the middle of the ornament

Gold is so festive this time of year

It looks so lovely hanging on the tree

I also added a tag with the year so who ever got my ornament would know what year they received  it on

Wrapped and ready to be given away

  1. The music note strips inside the ornament is such a cute idea!

  3. Your ornament is so pretty. And what a wonderful idea of a "progressive tea" - I think that sounds like a very delightful day, especially having some older family members participate.
