Sweet DIY Ornaments and Garland

I am so glad that you have stopped by, I have been making some really great ornaments for my tree. I also made a garland to match and they were so fun, easy and inexpensive. I can’t wait to share them with you!

This little Angel is so fun and easy to make, I found it on Pintrest. I used old grocery bags for the wings and for the body I tea stained some white sheeting that I had and sewed it in the form of a body. I used twigs from the garden for arms, and a half of piece of gold pipe cleaner for the halo, I glued it all with a glue gun. I choose to sew around the wings to give it a little texture and design and then used a fine tip marker for the eyes. They make great gift tags as well as ornaments.

I wanted something really different this year for my tree so I limited the colors to blues, sliver, gold and any neutral color. For the garland I used pipe cleaners, in silver and gold, one half of one. Then I twisted them all together. The garland turned out beautiful! I combined them with the old antique glass beads that I have. They use to be on my Dad’s tree when he was a child.

Here is a peek of my unfinished tree with the garlands on them. I really love the look.

As I was browsing through pint-rest I found these darling ornaments that are made out of cardboard, old sheet music, and glitter. I said to myself “I can make those!” So I did. I used cookie cutters for a template, then cut out one from the sheet music, and one from cardboard. I glued them together, then added a glitter out line. I made a cute banner for the ornament by cutting out the title of the music. For the hanger I used a small piece of pipe cleaner.

I made rein deer, angel wings, trees, stars, doves, and bells. I really enjoyed making them and can’t wait for you to see them on the tree. I decorated five trees in all, and I’m still having fun and lots more to do.

For some reason it is always LOVERLY to decorate for the Christmas season!
