This Christmas keepsake will be treasured for years. If the past year included a wedding, birth or graduation this gift of the memory is perfect to give. Preserve the memory of big life events with this simple DIY.
Optional: Ribbon, Wood Letters or Numbers
Simply cut the announcement into thin even strips. I tried not to cut through too many words so that the invitation verbiage was still visible through the bulb.
Wrap paper strips around a straw or a pen to create paper spirals. Then remove the top of the ornament and drop spirals into the clear bulb.
Finally replace the top then thread a ribbon through the hanger and tie a bow.
If desired, paint tiny wood letters or numbers recognizing the married couple’s last name, new baby’s name or year of the event then add them to the bulb. Another idea would be to use a paint pen or permanent marker to write the year on the outside of the bulb.
