Bottle cap music note ornament tutorial

I have a tradition of making ornaments for all of my piano students each year.  This year I came up with these personalized music note ornaments.  I used the same concept as gifts for my church choir but substituted a picture of the painting I had made of the church inside the note head.  These were fairly easy to make once I got the hang of it.

I had some tubing in my stash that I had picked up on clearance a long time ago.  I simply cut them down to a reasonable length.

Bought bottle caps (the used ones all had dents from openening so I couldn't recycle!)

Added some copper foil so I could solder them

Soldered the whole thing together

Drilled a hole which I thread some wire through for the hanger.

Added the picture or the name, layered on some Glossy Accents, and then threw a glass pebble over the top to give it dimension.

I think they turned out cute and everyone seemed to like them.
Thanks for stopping by.
