Today I’m excited to show you how to make a beautiful Christmas music wreath ornament with just a few inexpensive supplies.
So today is the twelfth and final day of sharing handmade Christmas ornaments! I’m pretty sure this last ornament may just be my favorite of the Twelve.
I made this tiny Christmas music wreath using pages of Christmas carols torn from an old hymnal.
Around here, hymnals are pretty easy to find at estate sales and thrift stores but if you don’t have time to go searching for your own, I’ve got you covered.
I know that it isn’t quite so easy for everyone to find old hymnals or old sheet music for crafting, so I decided to share the wealth.
I looked through my collection of vintage songbooks and hymnals and scanned the most popular Christmas songs to share as free printables. You can download your own copies, print them out, and you’re all set.
Just make sure to print them on both sides of your paper for this particular project.

- Sheets of Christmas music – you can find free printables of 9 popular Christmas songs here or for this particular ornament you could also use non-Christmas sheet music
- hot glue gun
- tiny grapevine wreath – around 4″ is a good size for this
- three jingle bells – 1/2″ jingle bells work well
How to Make a Christmas Music Wreath Ornament
To make this wreath, I used pretty much the same method I used for my salvaged Bible wreath – just much smaller.
First cut a few long strips from your music and cover your little wreath.
It doesn’t have to be perfect – just make sure all of the grapevine is covered. This will be your wreath base.
Cut the rest of your music into tiny rectangles – around two inches by three inches. Roll each rectangle into a cone and hot glue the end so it stays rolled.
Hot glue the cones into place on the tiny wreath form.
Tie three jingle bells together with a piece of twine or string.
Push the twine through the hole in the center of the wreath. You can glue it in place or just tie the ends of the twine around the wreath form.
Finally, tie another piece of twine around the wreath base for hanging.
