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?

Drum Ornament Directions

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

To make it, cut a straight piece of card, an sew it together to make a tube.

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

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.
