Vintage Music Paper covered Glass Ornament 
I originally saw this idea posted here 
by the very talented Julia Stainton
Here is a picture of the supplies you will need:
First, tear your paper (I've used sheets of vintage music) 
into 25 strips approximately 1/2" wide by 5" long 
then ink the edges.
Take the hanger and top off the ornament so you can hold it by putting your index finger inside of it. Apply the strips of inked papers to the ornament with Matte Mod Podge going around twice to completely cover it. Then put a good layer of Matte Mod Podge over the whole ornament.

After about an hour, the Mod Podge will be dry enough to touch the outside but still a little wet underneath. Take this opportunity to smooth down any edges with your fingers and roll the ornament about to make it nice and smooth.
Coat the ornament with a layer of Gloss/Lustre Mod Podge and let it dry over night.
Pour glass glitter in to a bowl. Paint a thick layer of Gloss/Lustre Mod Podge on the ornament 
and roll it in the glitter. 
Sprinkle glitter over the top, tap off the excess, and let it dry.

Collect some fun baubles, tags, feathers, flourishes and ribbon and decorate your ornament with them. If you attach your decorations to thin ribbon, you can just put the ends in the opening before putting the top back on and the top will hold them in place.
Supply list:
3 inch Craft Glass Ornaments
Vintage sheet music
Matte Mod Podge, Gloss/Lustre Mod Podge
Art Institute Vintage Glass Glitter (I got mine here)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Vintage Photo" and "Tea Dye"
