Like many other bloggers right now, I have a thing for projects made from sheet music & book pages. And it totally makes me swoon if the project happens to be Christmas decorations made from vintage hymnal pages!

Can you spot the super easy ornaments I whipped up this morning (excuse the mantle – I can’t decide if I like all the signs in one place yet)? There are only three ornaments because I’m saving room for another project that I hope to post about later. icon smile DIY Project: Vintage Sheet Music Ball Ornaments Can’t tell what they are?

What you’ll need:

  • clear plastic balls (I bought these at Michael’s)
  • old hymnal pages
  • scrapbooking scissors (regular scisors will do)

Step 1.
Using your scissors cut your hymnal pages into thin strips. I used an old pair of scrapbooking scissors to make the edges of each strip wavy for extra interest. Regular scissors will do. If you decide to make a lot of ornaments…a paper shredder will save you scads of time!

Love that these ornaments are from old hymnals that have been used to sing about the very reason we celebrate Christmas!

    does it need to be Christmas/holiday related? or just a DIY? Cause I just finished my entertainment center and would love to link it up, but it’s definitely not holiday related in any way!
