Silent Night Ornament

Silent Night Ornament

I created this heart shaped shadow box from plaster several months ago. I had an idea for it then changed my mind and well it’s been sitting on my worktable since. Well, over the weekend an idea came to me and I’m happy to say, it worked perfectly. I love it when this happens.

I decided to turn this lonely little plaster heart into a holiday ornament. The sides of the heart are covered in vintage sheet music from 1920 and the typed sentiment “Silent Night” is typed onto vintage note paper using my awesome antique Underwood typewriter. Then the entire pieces is covered in glitter. There is something so beautiful about the roughness of plaster being covered in glitter, it’s magical. When looking into this ornament I imagine a beautiful snowy winter night, where everything is still and all are at peace.
