Reuse an Old Hymnal for Unique Winter Decor
I am taking a break from my school-sanctioned-hazing/Christmas decor to fold some ornaments for myself… what a concept, right?
I thought it would be really pretty to use the pages of Spencer’s gold trim bible. He didn’t like that idea and on further thought I didn’t either. I think a Catholic could do without a King James bible, but I digress.
I settled for an old hymnal for my paper and it is showing great results! Here is a picture of the top portion of my ornament.
As if cutting up a $.50 hymnal for ornaments is not stingy enough, I made it even more so. I discovered that the petals can be folded with paper cut in half instead of folded. This way I can save 50% on paper. I refuse to buy double-stick tape; so the paperclips I got for Christmas two years ago (a joke from my brother about my overt thriftiness) and a glue stick from a welcome-to-school package are doing the trick.
I like to avoid overt Christmas decoration and tend towards a “winter” theme. Now I won’t feel guilty about hanging this up immediately and forgetting it until March.
