Christmas Tree Ornaments {with book pages}

I’d like to start by saying that we do not have our Christmas tree as of yet. We are planning on taking the trek out into the wilderness {aka tree farm} this Saturday to find the perfect tree for our family :) I am suuppper excited because up until last year, I always had an artificial tree. Words cannot express the excitement I have built up right now for Saturday!!! I think I might be more excited then my daughter :)

Year after year I’ve always used the same ole rinky dink ornaments. But this year it’s getting an overhaul. My vision involves book page decorations of some sort {I want that vintage feel}. Last weekend I started in on a set of ornaments and I love how they turned out. What do you think?

I purchased a package of 12 clear ornaments from Hobby Lobby for $7.99. It was actually an impulse buy {I had went there for something completely different} but I’m glad I picked them up. I only needed a few pages out of a book and scissors to make these. So $7.99 was my final cost. Not bad.

They are so decorative looking, I almost don’t want to put them on the tree! Maybe I’ll have to buy more :)
