I needed some decorations for my table at an upcoming craft show but I didn't want anything to colorful or "loud" that would make the table look cluttered, plus I wanted a vintage look..I found this idea on http://simplesisterblog.blogspot.com/ . I took some old Christmas balls that I was ready to throw out and made them useable again!
I found an old book already falling apart and tore the pages into strips, put some glue on the back of the strips and smoothed them onto the Christmas balls..kinda tricky and my fingers were full of glue before I finished my first one!
after they dried a little I also put a little glue around the top of the ball and added some glitter
then I ran around the house looking for little boxes and wrapped them in craft paper and twine. I'm hoping this will be neutral enough to be simple but still festive. I will post pictures of my table after the show this weekend!
