Aren’t these little trees just the cutest? I saw them online and knew I wanted to teach my moms’ group how to make them during our Christmas meeting this week. I love how simple they are and how cute they all turned out. They look pretty displayed solo or as a grove of musical evergreens – a reminder of the beauty of some of our most beloved and treasured Christmas music.
Here’s how to make them:

Google can bring up a bevy of Christmas sheet music (sacred or secular) with a simple image search. I’ve included a link below to the PDF I created with four different printable songs. Print out your favorite piece on a full sheet of paper and cut it into a (rather skinny) triangle.
Starting at the bottom, fold it into 1″ pieces from the bottom to the top of your triangle.
Break off the bottom part of your skewer so that you’re left with about 8 inches. Using the sharp point of your skewer (or a small hole puncher) gently poke a hole in the middle of the bottom piece and work your way through to the top. You may need to wiggle each fold down the skewer as you go.
Drill a small hole into a piece of wood (I buy mine in bulk from Amazon: unfinished wood slices) and fit the skewer in with a drop of Elmer’s Wood Glue.
Attach a couple of gold star stickers to the top to secure the music paper in place, and voila!
