Then I cut the music into strips trying to keep the staves together and included the song title and composer. The toughest part was actually getting it into the ornament. After carefully removing the top, I wrapped the individual strips tightly around a pencil and slid them down into the ornament. I used a bamboo skewer and sometimes one of my crochet hooks to move the pieces around inside the ornament until I had the look I wanted.
To finish it off, I tied on a nice ribbon to hang the ornament with. (I personally hate metal ornament hooks, and one day I will replace all of mine with ribbon!)
Besides the music filled ornaments, I also made this Hello Kitty one for my other sister who is a huge fan! The Hello Kitty gift tag was from a McDonald's kid's meal. I just punched a hole in it to tie the pink ribbon through! Shhh don't tell! I also made one for my grandmother with Christmas themed Bible verses as well as filled some with pretty ribbons and other holiday decorations. The possibilities are endless! I wish I had taken more pictures last year because they all turned out beautiful!
*Be careful stuffing your ornaments because the glass at the top can be sharp. I wouldn't recommend this project for small children!
