Make a J-O-Y banner using vintage
Christmas sheet music. If you don't
happen to have old sheet music you can
find it on the internet and make copies.
I found free vintage Christmas sheet
music printables HERE.
I chose three that were similar in design.
'O Come All Ye Faithful' in image size
432x640. I enlarged it to 110% .
'Silent Night' in image size 432x640
enlarged to 110%, and
'Jingle Bells' in size 409x600
enlarged to 115%.

For printing I used the landscape setting.
I wanted to get 2 on each page but couldn't
figure that out as quickly as I wanted so I just
printed them each on their own page using
heavy stock paper. Then I cut them out.
I found a font I liked, Curlz MT for the letters.
I printed those using regular copy paper
in size 450, outline.
Using carbon paper, I traced the letters onto the music.
I filled in the letters with a black Sharpie.
First using a thin one for the outline
and a thick one to fill in.
I decided to add a little snowy glitter.
I just ran a little white glue around the edges
and sprinkled it with glitter. Let the glue dry
then cut 2 slits with a pointy knife and thread
some sheer shiny ribbon thru the slits to hang.
See my little silver JOY letters on the lower
left window pane? I forgot to take those down
last year...and may forget again this year.
A fun, easy, J-O-Y banner.
