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.
