DIY Vintage Shabby Chic Christmas Tree & Christmas Ornaments

You all know how much I love vintage, shabby chic style and neutral colors. So when it all combined into one, and when I find a few inspiring ideas (Blog: Shabby Art Boutique) I created a Christmas tree and Christmas decorations which are really my style.
The design is very simple and doesn`t requires any expensive materials. It`s enough to find a few old different sizes books, appropriate holiday images (The Graphics Fairy), some glue and glitter and you're ready to decorate your home for holidays. You can put Christmas ornaments on top of the Christmas tree or hang them on the tree and create a unique decoration for your home.

Svi znate koliko volim vintidž i shabby stil i neutralne boje. Kada sve to kombinujem i kada naiđem na nekoliko inspirativnih ideja (Blog: Shabby Art Boutique), nastaju Božićne jelke i Božićni ukrasi baš po mom ukusu. 
Izrada je vrlo jednostavna i ne zahteva nikakve skupe materijale. Dovoljno je nekoliko starih, požutelih knjiga različite veličine, odgovorajuće praznične sličice (The Graphics Fairy), malo lepka, glitera i spremni ste da dekorišete svoj dom za praznike. Ornamente možete staviti na vrh jelke ili ih okačiti uz malo trake na jelku i stvoriti jedinstven ukrase za svoj doma.
Tutorial for the Christmas tree:
Tutorijal za Božićnu jelku:
Fold the top right part of the page as shown on the photo going inwards.
Fold it again in the same direction making sure that the edges of a  bent sides are flush with the book.
Fold remaining part on the bottom inwards and make sure your edges are flush again and your first page is done.
Repeat for the rest of the book until you reach the last page. Then unfold the book and use a little bit of glue to glue first and last page.
You can decorate your tree with a glitter. Just add a little bit of glue to the edges of your tree and sprinkle with glitter immediately. 
Tutorial for the Christmas ornaments:
Tutorijal za Božićne ukrase:
With a craft scissors make a decorative edge to the page of the book.
Fold the page in a accordion way.
Bring two sides of your accordion, making the circular shape and glue them together. Use a closepin to secure it in place.
Add the desired photo to the front and glue it in place. If you want, you can add a little bit of glitter to some parts of the photo, like me.
Play around with shapes and ideas and make a bunch of unique and beautiful decorations. For the birds, I glued photo on a cardstock to make it sturdier. 
This idea is very easy and inexpensive way to make your home festive and beautiful for the holidays. If you like it, share with your friends! Happy Holidays!
