Victorian Drum Ornament

This is a cute drum ornament to make. What could be more perfect for holding little trinkets. It would be just as lovely if it didn’t. Why not make a few for your tree?


Victorian Christmas Ornament – Drum

Fig. 12, a Drum, can be made of paper, and ornamented with strips of red and of gold paper, and have a few sugar-plums inside.

Victorian Christmas Ornament, Fig. 6

To make it, join a piece of paper as for Fig. 6, above.

Draw, with a bow-pencil, a round as large as the top, and a second round a little larger.

Victorian Christmas Ornament, Fig. 13

Cut out the larger round, and notch the edges up (Fig. 13, above). When you have done this, turn down the edges, gum them, and fit them into the drum. For the other end cut a similar piece, put a loop of thread or ribbon in the centre, and put it on without gumming it. Made in card, ornamented, filled with sweetmeats, and a piece of net gummed at the top, with a band of gold paper over the join, it is very pretty.
