Make a Sheet Music Craft – Ornament Tutorial {CCC}

Over at Little Birdie Secrets, we’re all about handmade! In fact, this year I’m making all of my Christmas tree ornaments. Okay, I know it’s a little crazy, but all my real ornaments are in storage for a year, so I’m challenging myself to make inexpensive handmade christmas ornaments. Which makes this a perfect addition to Jamielyn’s Crazy Christmas Crafter’s series!

Sheet Music Ball Ornament Tutorial

{ Sheet Music Craft }
Supplies:

*Glass ball ornament
*Sheet music, about 1 page
*Mod Podge
*Brush (a foam brush or wide artist’s paint brush)
*Jingle bell
*Glitter paint (optional)
*Glitter
*”Noel” printed tag & hole punch
*Hemp, linen thread, or thread for hanging
*12″ ribbon

1. Start by tearing your sheet music into strips of different lengths and widths. If you don’t have real sheet music, purchase a downloadable file of Christmas music (I found some on Etsy).

2. Paint the back of sheet music with Mod Podge and stick to glass ball, alternating direction of strips.

3. Use paint brush and Mod Podge on top of strips to seal edges. You may need to press down and create folds on some parts of strips to make them flat around ball. I used my fingers to do this. Continue until entire glass ball is covered with sheet music.

4. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge around the top hanging piece of the glass ball.
Dip in glitter. I used fine German glass glitter, but any glitter would be gorgeous.

5. This part is really optional, but I can’t help going over the top! Paint a layer of glitter paint on jingle bell and allow to dry.
6. Print the word “Noel” or another Christmas word on cream paper. Cut into a tag. Paint a border with glitter paint around edges and a thin layer over the top of the word. Punch a hole and thread jingle bell and tag on a piece of hemp or linen thread.
Tie to top of glass ball.

7. Tie a piece of ribbon in a bow through the loop on the top of the ball. Thread a piece of hemp through the loop to for hanging.
