Vintage-y Christmas Ornaments

So I was in Pottery Barn and they have all of their Christmas decorations up. I'm seeing lots of stuff with music themes and paper and I decided to be good and play with what I already had which includes a bunch of post-season bargain paper mache ornaments. You know, these:
I covered with some sheet music from a book I picked up. It's not Christmas music, but if someone's going to take the time to read the ornament they've got way too much time on their hands. 
Mod Podged the sheet music on, filed around the edges with an emery board, downloaded this great Santa from The Graphics Fairy, converted him to black and white, MP'd him on and trimmed it with adhesive rhinestones.
This is Father Christmas in his original form. I just went around the image with glitter glue. And what's Christmas without a star?

Now if you want to see a GREAT Pottery Barn knockoff? Go see what Vicki at Rusty Rooster Vintage did!

"if someone's going to take the time to read the ornament they've got way too much time on their hands." Hilarious. These are so simple but look Xpensive - my fave kind of project!

you are sooooo good at using up your stash...these vintage ornaments are so nice...

love the line about reading the sheet music...i always think about that when i pull out a yankee doodle dandy to put on a birthday card!!!

oh, but you'd be proud of me too ~ instead of buying more glitter stars, i bought a 12x12 sheet of awesome glitter paper and cut out stars and snowflakes with our industrial strength sizzez here at work {{{in the teacher's workshop}}} so for $1.99 i got so many stars and snowflakes for cards!!!
