Life is Amazing.
Home, Travel, Hobbies, Fun
I am a very sentimental person and have a bad habit of keeping everything. Most of it has stayed in a random box and moved with us from place to place. After our last move, I decided to get rid of a lot of the crap that I really don’t care about and do something purposeful with what I keep.
One of my first projects was figuring out a way to display my babies’ hospital hats and bracelets from when they were born. Many suggested shadow boxes, but I don’t have a ton of space on my walls (and TBH, I don’t really want it on my walls). I opted to go a different route and made ornaments with them. They were cheap, easy, and I really love how they turned out. When they’re not on my Christmas tree, they sit on a votive candle on my bookshelf in the office (see picture above).
What you need:
Take the metal portion off the ornament so there is an opening to the inside. If you want to add something decorative (like confetti), add it first. Add the hat second. You can get it to sit how you want with the straw. Add bracelets and other smaller keepsakes. Put the top back on and enjoy! Let me know what you think!
