Vintage Upcycled Cardboard Star Ornaments

15 Minutes
Add some vintage charm to your Christmas tree this year with these simple, but attractive star ornaments.
Using items you probably already have on hand, these sweet stars can be easily created in about 15 minutes.
Use a die cut machine to make some stars out of cardboard or cut your own. Get out your Modge Podge and some glitter and apply them all around the edges of your stars.
I used red on some and silver on others.
Next you'll want to make some vintage music paper rosettes (complete instructions can be found in the blog post).
Add a stamped word banner and a jingle bell, and you've made yourself a pretty ornament or package embellishment.

    I love it. I havent put up a tree since my mom died 23 years ago and decided it was time to have a small tree. I have no ornaments so these will be great "starter" ornaments!

    Thank you for inspiring me!

      Bless your heart, Ginger. Getting a small tree sounds just right to me :) It blesses me to know that "my" ornaments may someday be adorning your tree. Happy Christmas!
