Fancy Frugal Life: Vintage Mod Podge Ornaments & My Christmas Tree

Vintage Mod Podge Ornaments & My Christmas Tree



So... I worked 2 days straight on decorations and getting the house ready for Christmas! It's looking really festive and I can't wait to show you all the projects I've completed! Yay! I love the holidays :)

My tree is done and take a peek at these little ornaments I redid using vintage maps and music paper printables from The Graphics Fairy. Such a great way to give new life to old or mismatched ornaments!


It's messy yet simple! Just apply Mod Podge and strips of paper to the ornaments.


After they dried. I tied with ribbon and burlap to hang. I love the result!




Remember my accordian paper love bird garland from my brother's wedding? Click here for instructions.


I saved and used them on my tree!

I also made made mini bunting with fabric triangles, string and hot glue for another garland.

I'm really diggin the cream, beige, and burlap combo on this tree! I already had the cream poinsettias from past years.... so it all worked out.


Well I am completely exhausted! Off to get some rest for tomorrow...Hoping to get in a family activity that does not include decorating :)

WOW! What a lovely tree. I love anything made from book pages and/or sheet music. You did a great job. I'm going to have to check out the link for the music; I made a similar ornament and had the hardest time finding good free sheet music online. Would you share your gorgeous decor here? Pretty please??

I make these all the time, and the BEST part of the project is tossing the foam brush and smearing Mod Podge with my fingers... heaven!

Very pretty ornaments! :D
