Music lovers can make a variety of music-centered ornaments like the holiday tune star or the music sheet tassel.

Glue the sheet music star onto the corrugated side of the cardboard. Tie a piece of cording into a bow, and glue it to the center of the star. Finish by forming a loop out of a red piece of ribbon and gluing the ends to the top of the star.

To make the sheet music tassel, print sheet music out on both sides of a paper, and cut it into 1/4-inch strips. Fold most of the strips in half over a loop of string for the ornament hanger, and glue a bead to a cork.

Loop the paper ends around a pencil to give them a little curl.
