Luke and I are huge on traveling (like it’s our favorite thing to do together) and we make it a priority. It helps that Luke works for Expedia, but before he even started there the travel bug bit us… hard. Now, that we have a little one, we try to do a family vacation each year and also a vacation with just Luke and I. Greyson loves looking at our travel hallway (see our Modern Travel Gallery Hallway reveal for inspiration) and so I thought he would really love getting ornaments out each year that had a memento from our vacations. That’s how this DIY Travel Keepsake Ornament came to be.
Travel Keepsake Ornament
The sand was from our family vacation last year, but now that I have this idea in my head I’m going to be looking out for things that can fit in glass ornaments during our future vacations.
Basically, to do this, I filled a clear glass ornament with sand and then made the tags.
I used this punch and paper for the tags:
If you don’t have a punch you could print one off and then cut it out.
I strung the tags on a piece of twine.
I didn’t like the twine and the metal top of the ornament together, so I just covered the top of the ornament with twine.
Easy peasy and pretty cute if I do say so myself.
