These Christmas ornaments are handcrafted from pieces of soundboards from old pianos. Many soundboard are made of spruce. Often the soundboard is in very rough condition by the time the piano comes to me, so I have no qualms with painting the pieces. But then there are those gems that look as beautiful as when they were first assembled, and I leave the wood grain visible for all to see.

They are primarily diamond-shaped because that is the way the soundboard comes apart. I simply cut it into smaller pieces.

The ornaments that are painted are treated with chalk paint and then sanded on the edges for a distressed look consistent with the age of the piano from which they came. A length of sturdy twine slipped through a hole in the top holds the ornament securely on the tree, or wherever you wish to display it.

A Christmas ornament made from a piano soundboard... what a great accessory for your dedicated musician! This makes the perfect gift for a teacher, choir/band director, or student, as a token of appreciation for their many hours of teaching, conducting, and practicing.

Your color options are: moss green, crimson red, agave blue, ink black, or natural wood. (The natural wood pieces are painted on the cut edges.)
Lettering is done in paint pens, in either brown, black, or white.

This item is perfect for any musician or lover of music. Buy it for yourself or as a gift for the valued musician in your life. These pieces make excellent gifts for students, teachers, choir directors, band/orchestra conductors, or just someone who loves and appreciates music. It also works well when combined with other piano art to form an ensemble.

Gift wrapping is available at no extra charge.

PLEASE NOTE that I have photographed many of the ornaments I've made, but not all of them are currently available. The one you receive may not look exactly like the ones in the photo, as no two are ever identical. This truth makes the Piano Soundboard Christmas Ornament truly a unique item.

NOTE ABOUT UPCYCLING: Because I use discarded pianos, many of which are 50-100 years old, each piece by nature will have some minor defects and show some signs of "wear and tear." They may also appear somewhat dirty, despite my knuckle-scraping efforts to get them clean. (Solid wood pieces get a sink bath, but felt pieces can only be scrubbed with a dry wire or nylon brush.) Not only that, but each piece varies slightly from the next, making your purchase a one-of-a-kind. Any parts that are not indigenous to the piano are purchased new; only the piano parts are upcycled.

Dimensions: height varies from 4" (10cm) to 6.5" (16.5cm)
width varies from 2.5" (6.3cm) to 3.375" (8.5cm)
thickness varies from 1/4" (0.7cm) to 3/8" (1.0cm)

    Working with Angela on this customized "Middle C" gift made it feel special and from the heart. She happily answered my questions, and worked with me and my ideas!

    It was a gift for my husband for our anniversary. It was made of two pianos (like the two of us), 14 pieces (for our 14th anniversary), and with ivory keys (the traditional gift).

    It was definitely much easier than breaking down a piano to make something myself... which I was strongly considering! He really likes it, and was impressed that I was able to give the traditional (yet now unconventional) gift! Thanks so much!
