Vintage Sheet Music Ornament

I can not take any credit for these ornaments.  Teresa Jaye posted this tutorial at Frosted Designs a few weeks ago, and I just had to give it a try!  I made a few different versions:

Now, one word of caution.  When you pull off the top, so you can put your finger in the glass ornament while you Mod Podge, BE CAREFUL!  One of my ornaments had some rough edges and, yes, you guessed it, I sliced up my finger!  Blood does NOT add anything to these ornaments.  Trust me!
Don't worry if you don't have any sheet music.  I searched on-line for Christmas sheet music, printed it, tore it in strips, and inked the edges.  It worked just fine!

Now head over to Frosted Designs to see Teresa's Tutorial.  You'll definitely want to make a few of these ornaments!
