To continue on from my last post of vintage paper Christmas decorations, I have been adding old sheet music paper to ready-made basic shop purchased wood shape decorations, plus also creating 3D paper ornaments.
revamping old decorations:
For the wooden decorations, I really simply added shapes cut from old musical scores:
With a plain wooden decoration I simply added torn up strips of old paper glued on with Modge Podge:
And hey presto:
3D paper Decorations DIY:
Finally, I made some 3D decorations which are really simple:
- Cut 8 identically sized circles/shapes. Fold all in half with a strong crease in the middle.
- Glue one 1/2 side to the next piece, work your way all around until you have 2 pieces left to glue.
- Add a ribbon and glue shut. Here is a really simple video tutorial on how to make them in case the above makes no sense!
I shall be trying all sorts of shapes now. In fact my children had better keep busily moving about or I may decoupage them….
