These were inexpensive and easy to make and could be created in mass to decorate a tree, use as tie ons for gifts, etc.

First, I printed out some sheet music from Christmas Carol Music.  I chose Hark! The Herald Angels Sing which in retrospect, could have been adorned with some angel clip art {glittered of course}, feathers, maybe some little wings…now the mind is working!  I used paper just to see how this would work but the next “batch” I make I will be using card stock.  Once printed out, I cut the paper into 4″ squares and then cut a curve across the top.  Next, roll into a cone shape gluing the straight edge {I used a pencil as a backer while I firmly pressed the glued edge down-this helped to keep the shape of the cone-nothing like an orange dinosaur pencil to accomplish this}.  I then embellished the cone.  I purchased the silver trim and the felt cut outs at JoAnn Fabric’s-both 50% off.  I glued the trim around the top and also cut a length to use as a handle.  I then added glitter and glue to some other little items, stuffed the cone with some shredded paper and they were done.  These could be made larger to hold candies, gift cards, cookies, etc.  If any of you decide to make these, I would love to see how yours turn out, so please feel free to link to your site in the comment section below.

I will be heading over to Blissfully Domestic tonight for the “I am Blissfully Domestic-Week 4″ extravaganza and linking this post….I hope to see you over there.  Monday hugs, mb.

p.s.s. It is Thanksgiving night {11:50 p.m. here} and I just got home from my sister’s….everything was so good…I need to get to work but I had a few minutes to browse, went to The Inspired Room and was the first to add a link…I never “linked” over there…so I am excited.  There is some much inspiration {just like the name states} so be sure to stop over and look around.  This week’s links are specific to holiday inspiration.  I am ready for decorating/crafting overload!

  9. Absolutely beautiful, and as we have two musicians in the family, this is perfect for us. I’ll be attempting this ASAP.

  10. Oh these are lovely, and how wonderful that they’re made out of music sheets! The nostalgic look of these cone ornaments remind me of the Christmas decorating themes that have no red — just greens and golds and silvers, and maybe even blues.

    Thanks for sharing these beauties!
