One of the most beautiful things you can put on a Christmas tree is a homemade ornament. My husband’s grandmother sat down one year and made a set of Victorian ornaments for her and all her daughter’s trees. Hand sewn boots, cones, hats, all done in a dusty rose and cream. Every since I saw that I have been wanting to do that to our tree. Not necessarily in a Victorian theme though.
Actually the theme doesn’t matter, all that does is me getting around to making ones that I like. Such as these stars. A lot of people put stars on top, I don’t. I make bows for mine, but I still want some stars. I broke out my 3D paper star ornaments by My Scrap Chick. These are so classic, and what I love the best is that they are two sided ones. See? Hopefully you can catch how nice and puffy these are. They are also very easy to put together once you realize you need to cut two out.
I tried to give them a vintage look with Tea Dye Distress Ink and a little glitter. I couldn’t decide if I should use gold or silver glitter, so I used both as I have two full size trees up this year. A first for us. One tree is all gold and burlap, the other is white and silver with the boys handmade and purchased ornaments. We call this the kids tree, even though they are both grown and out of the house now. That’s probably why I wanted to have a tree just for their Christmas memories.
Even though it’s after Christmas, you can still get a lot of use out of this star set. I can see hanging these from the ceiling for a New Years party, all silvery, kinda like a disco ball. Your daughter’s movie star, fairy, or princess themed party (perfect fairy wand, amiright?). Your son’s Star Wars, or any space themed birthday or bedroom. Make a galaxy far, far away after painting the stars with glow in the dark paint. Instead of putting them together, glue the halves to his wall. Instant universe. Last but not least, Fourth of July BBQ – need I say more?
So, as you can see these are after Christmas, any time decor. Don’t delay. Get your 3D Puffy Star file today!
