A Crafty Creative Christmas Guest The Thriftress

Make sure you link-up all your Christmas projects here.

If you have never visited today's guest Sarah's blog you are missing out she is so talented and can make something amazing from something someone else may throw out! Welcome Sarah from The Thriftress.

Hi I'm Sarah from the blog The Thriftress.  I'm so very excited to be part of A Crafty Creative Christmas today!  My passion is decorating and crafting on a budget.  I love to makeover discarded furniture and decorate with thrift store finds.  You can check out my blog here for more of my projects and thrifty ideas.

Today I'm sharing my tutorial for rolled sheet music ornaments.  Vintage sheet music is a lovely element to add to your home decor and Christmastime is no exception!

To create these ornaments you will need the following supplies:

  • Sheet music.  If no vintage sheet music is available there are several printable images online. (I've put together a board on Pinterest here)
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
Start by cutting your sheet music into the desired size.  I cut mine into fourths.

Next roll the sheet music up using Mod Podge to secure the seam.  Brush the entire sheet music tube with Mod Podge to give the paper some stiffness.  This will make the paper less fragile and protect against tearing.  I like to use shimmer, sparkle or gloss Mod Podge formulas to give the paper a little Christmas shine.

When the tubes are dry attach the ribbon of your choice.  Add a ribbon loop or ornament hanger to the center ribbon to hang the ornament on the Christmas tree and enjoy!

The ornaments are also lovely grouped together for decorating or as a special touch on your holiday packages!

Thanks for spending some time with me today and have a crafty, creative Christmas!
