Hi friends! How are you doing? Can you believe that Christmas is already a week and a half away?! Where on earth did December go? I’m still working away on some Christmasy blog posts and videos, so I feel like I am way behind on shopping for presents! Ahhh!

But today, my friends, I am excited! Because in my Vintage Inspired Buffalo Check Christmas Tree post from last week, I gave you all a sneak peek of my DIY Christmas Carol Sheet Music Ornaments. And lots of you spotted them out & loved them! So now is when I finally get to share the full tutorial with you!

But First, The Christmas Movie That Inspired This Project

If you were to ask me right now what my favorite Christmas movie is, I would hands down say Joyeux Noël*In case you haven’t heard of it, Joyeux Noël* is a story full hope & humanity that depicts the World War I Christmas Truce of 1914 through the eyes of seven main characters, who are members of either the German, French or Scottish troops fighting on the French frontlines.

One of the many reasons why I love this movie is the soundtrack. There are times during the movie where soldiers from both sides are singing Christmas carols together, but all in their native languages.

And those scenes really speak to me. I have a degree in music, so I really do believe that there is something about music that can transcend languages & cultures & bring people together, even during something as terrifying & horrible as a war.

If you want to, you can read more about this movie on IMDb. Or, you can buy a copy of it on Amazon*! By the way, Amazon has the soundtrack* available for purchase as well in case you wanted to listen to snippets of the music first. (Do it!!)

So, what does this have to do with the ornaments? Let me explain!

In the end, inspired by this movie, I decided to incorporate various Christmas carols in their original written languages into my project. This includes Stille Nacht (Silent Night) in German, Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful) in Latin, and Cantique de Noël (O Holy Night) in French.

I love how they turned out, & that they look like miniature choir books! SO cute, right? And I also just love how they add historic & multilingual elements to my vintage Christmas tree!

Alright, now it’s time for the tutorial!

Here’s what you’ll do:

Print out my free printable Christmas carol sheet, & cut out one of the carol cards.

Each of these cards will end up being approximately 2 inches by 1.25 inches.

Place the sheet music cutout card on the binder, & cut out a piece of the binder to be the backing for your ornament.

You’ll want it to be just a little bit bigger than the paper.

Fold both the backing & the sheet music printout in half so that it looks like a small binder or book.

Cut a piece of the cording to be the hanger for the ornament. Mine was about seven inches long.

Fold the cording in half so that it makes a loop, & place the ends of the string in the middle of the backing piece.

Put two pieces of double sided tape on top of the backing, ensuring that the loop is now secured into place.
