DIY: Wedding Invitation Ornament

One of my favorite things about our wedding were our invitations. When all was said and done we had about 10 left over. I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of any of them but had no idea what to do with them. So they got packed up in our wedding memory box with everything else.

A few months ago as I was surfing Pinterest I saw this pin of a wedding invitation ornament. Genius! I had to make one. My friend Danielle recently made one too and it came out so cute. I was motivated, and off to the craft store.

Materials You’ll Need:

  • Extra wedding invitation
  • Clear ornament bulb (glass or plastic, mine’s plastic)
  • Some cool ribbon
  • A ruler
  • A pencil
  • Scissors


Start by measuring the invitation, making a series of dots where you’ll draw where you’ll cut.


I went vertical on my invitation but you could do this horizontally too. Probably could have read the words better that way, ah well.


When all the strips of the invitation have been cut, curl them around the pencil.




Carefully stuff each curled strip into the ornament (I got mine at Michael’s, by the way). I used my pencil to push them down in there.


Get your fun ribbon (mine’s a silver glitter ribbon) and create a loop to hang the ornament with.


You can tie a bow or add a charm if you want.


And then you’re done and ready to hang your ornament!
