Wedding Invitation Ornament

       I had seen the wedding invitation ornament idea on Pinterest before I even got married and knew it was something I wanted to make for myself and maybe give to others for their wedding. I'm a sucker for keepsakes. 
I made our ornament back in December to hang on our Christmas tree, but I ended up leaving it out on an ornament stand all year round and I just love it.  The best part is it took about 12 minutes to make.  Easy Peasy, which is my favorite type of craft. 

1. Clear ornament- you can buys these at any craft store, they usually come in a pack of four. 
2. An invitation 

3. Dried flowers

4.  Ribbon

 5. Scissors 

First I took a few flower petals from both my bridal bouquet and a bridesmaid bouquet that I had dried out and stuck them in the clear ornament. 

Next, I cut my wedding invitation into strips about a 1/4 of inch thick so that the strips would fit into the ornament, and stuck the strips into the ornament.

  Last, I grabbed some ribbon from our wedding day that we used to tie on various décor at our reception and I tied a big bow around the ornament and looped it throw the hanger.   All done.  

Sorry I didn't take any pictures of the process, but it is so easy and self explanatory.  

I think this is the perfect gift for your favorite bride or yourself and you can customize it to add other trinkets from the wedding as well. 


  1. What a cute idea, this would make a great 1 year anniversary gift to friends or family members as well!
