Jingle Bell Ornament

I made a simple little sheet music ornament.

I bought a couple of music books from a used book store and one song happened to be "Jingle Bells".  Appropriate, right?


To make the ornament, first I inserted a loop of ribbon into the top of a styrofoam ball the same as with my pinecone map ornament.  You just make a hole in the ball with scissors, make a ribbon loop and tie the end with a knot, drop some glue into the hole and push the ribbon knot firmly into the hole.


I cut the sheet music up into approximately 2 inches strips and mod podged them onto the ball in a random pattern.  Make sure you go right up to the ribbon loop.




After it has dried, spray it with a sealer to make it shine and seal it (duh) from moisture.  I tied a bow to the top to finish it off.  Next time I think I'll tea-stain the paper before I glue it on to give it a more antique look.
