Nancy and I had craft night at Loot last month and started making some ornaments for a little silver tree at the shop.
We made these star ornaments with a package of various sized, wooden stars from the craft store. We stamped them with a fancy script stamp and added glitter to all the edges. Then, we drilled tiny holes and attached a pearl to the top of the star and a crystal to the bottom.
I found these empty glass ball ornaments at a yard sale for 50 cents. I cut strips of my vintage sheet music and stuffed as many as I could fit inside each one.
I attached some simple, sheer ribbon to each glass ball.
We also covered empty, wooden spools with sheet music and embellished them with glitter and pearls for our tree.
To tie the whole look together I made a tree topper using more vintage sheet music and a leftover, woooden star.
We set the Christmas tree in a fancy, silver urn and covered the base with burlap. We were planning on making this our raffle tree, but we never got around to doing the raffle, so we have been selling the ornaments off one-by-one.
This was a very inexpensive way to decorate a Christmas tree. We already had most of the supplies and we had such a fun time making all the ornaments.
