A super easy craft for your tree or any of your book loving/writer friends. I’ve made a few ornaments in my life, but I think these are my favorite over the painted ones. And they make my heart happy because they look like they’re made of book pages, beside they aren’t. Here’s what you’ll need:
- A few old magazines
- any plain ornaments (glass or plastic)
- mod-podge (I used glossy, but matte would work too if you want that look)
- scissors/paint brush
First you cut up the text of the magazine in tiny little squares (or triangles or what not). You want them big enough to show the text, but small enough that they will wrap around the ornament without having too many creases. Than you paint both sides of the paper with mod-podge and then stick them to the globe. You’re going to get your fingers sticky, don’t worry too much about it. Leave them out to dry without much touching them. I set them on an old tape ring, but you could cut up a toilet paper roll to set them on.
Hang, give, and enjoy!
