JOY { DIY holiday ornaments}

Tis the Season for JOY! Today I am sharing a DIY holiday ornament.
When Stephanie from Under the table and dreaming asked me If I would like to guest post for her on ornaments, it was perfect timing because I had just completed this quick little craft.

{This here craft is one my little guy did a few years back}
Obviously he can work with glitter, read on....

  I seem to be spreading lots of JOY around the house these days...what you don't believe me?
 Sure I am just ask my family...NOT!
Well, I am having fun decorating and this was my latest little craft venture.

I found these little wood chip letter at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents each.
My initial intent was to glitter them.
That was a disaster , and I have officially decided I HATE glitter,
now that's the holiday spirit for ya!
PLAN B! always have a PLAN B just in case.
I took some old vintage book pages and tore them in tiny pieces and mod podged them on piece by piece.  Really simple and fun.
I then brushed lightly some glitter on them.

That was easy enough!

I added a thin ribbon and have them just dangling from the pie safe...
These could however, be hung on the tree too!

I added a fresh poinsetta to my Tureen.

Happy, happy JOY, JOY!~

Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Thank you Stephanie for having me.

Great JOY.... but don't think for a second you are going to get that Red and White Christmas Doily by me. I see it. Things might settle for a while, so I'll have to look for something fun like this to do.

Looks like you've been having fun crafting Debbie. I love to decoupage too. I like the way you have the letters staggered in the way you have them displayed. Sorry I haven't come around much lately. Been swamped with the holiday stuff, but I hope you and your family are having a wonderful Christmas season.

Another fabulous idea by Debbie! The letters look awesome with torn book pages and hints of glitter. Sorry to hear about your break up, though, with lots of glitter ... hate when that happens! LOL

You did such a cute job on those letters! I never thought about buying those from Hobby Lobby and dressing them up. I may do that. I love decorating with letters and numbers.

That looks great -- love those simple craft projects. I'm a tad bit behind in blogland & madly trying to catch up. Your kitchen is just delightful. Love the repurposed sign -- gotta love chalkboards!

Funny you are having strange weather, because we are as well. It's been raining continuously for 2 days, with temps in the 40's & 50's. We even had a couple of days of freezing (like 26-28) last week. Very strange for our desert area!

I like the use of colored glitter on the ornaments. I bet they really sparkle with the lights -There is something fun and festive with the use of color. Years ago the kids wanted colored lights for our tree -We had only used white inside and out -I am so glad we switched to have all colored lights on the tree in our home it makes it seem so special. I think a tree with all red lights would be beautiful.

What's that fancy new thing that's popping up at the bottom of my screen now. You go. I sent in for blogher, but guess they are not ready for me yet or I need some code or something. Time to find some glitter here. Goodness, know I can make a mess with that.

VERY cute -- I love working with the ultra fine glitter but for days after I look like I'm trying to be a teenager wearing that 'club' glitter! Can't go wrong with book pages ever -- love it!

I love these. They are so cute. I hate when you think something will work so well and then it's a flop. I guess it just makes us more creative.

You are so smart! I am like you. I hate the glitter! I love it but hate it too. I bought some mesh fabric with glitter in it for the tree. I took it back after trying one piece. Glitter was everywhere! I think the modge podge pages are the perfect touch!

Such a cute project!
I am forever trying to find letters that spell out specific words, like at Anthropologie, and they are always missing just ONE of the letters!
You have inspired me to make my OWN!

Such a great idea.
Thanks for sharing.
Merry Christmas, Debbie!

Your Bunco group looks like a lively bunch of sweet gals and that basement is awesome! Nice high ceiling and windows too! Fab! Loved the saddle. :)
