How Lovely Are Your Branches

Day 3 of the twelve days of ornaments. Actually I instagramed this late last night - so it really does count for day 3. Even though hopefully later I can post Day 4 and get back on track.

Supply List:

Music themed wrapping paper or scrapbook paper

Popsicle sticks

Glue gun and glue sticks


Modge Podge

Foam brush

Silver paper

Star punch



I used a colored popscile stick - but a natural popsicle stick would also look fantastic.

Cut the music paper into small strips and glue onto the popsicle stick.

I started working on a piece of foil. After the music strips have been glued onto the popsicle stick - lightly coat each strip with some Modge Podge.

Once the Modge Podge has dried  - the strips will be stiff and can be cut into a tree shape.

While the Modge Podge is drying - punch out the silver stars. Yellow stars would also look pretty.

Then I glue on the stars at the top of each popsicle stick.

Turn the ornament over and glue a twine loop so that this ornament can hang on the tree or tied onto a package. These would be cute to pass out to choir or orchestra friends.
