Hi all! Jen here and I thought I’d show you how easy it is to make a trendy sheet music wreath!
I started with a book of sheet music I picked up at Goodwill!
I cut a large circle out of cardboard for a base & then started rolling sheet music cones.
I used hot glue to secure the cones- sorry for the quality of this pic- it is surprisingly difficult to apply hot glue AND take a picture!
Next you just start gluing those cones down to your base!
Here’s what it looks like from the back with the first row glued in place.
And the front- (I rolled/glued a bunch at a time to try to have some consistency, that way I could glue this entire row at once)
Second row down, trying to fill all the spaces evenly!
I cut several ‘blossoms’ for the center using spellbinder dies in 2-3 sizes.
I crumpled the sheet music (carefully, it’s vintage & tears easily!) and added a pleated satin flower. I used Prima Ribbonista Kimberly Jones’ tutorial found here for the flower. That’s a Bazzill adhesive jewel in the center!
I cut a cardstock center large enough to cover the open area between the cones. Using 1.5” double faced satin in black, I hot glued it, ruffling as I adhered.
Twice around & I tucked the end under. I hot glued the flower center & added the whole thing to my wreath.
I hot glued a loop of 3/8” double faced satin to the back of the wreath for hanging.
These wreaths are pretty simple & would be fun to do with patterned paper as well- can’t you imagine a Thanksgiving wreath with gorgeous fall paper?
That’s it for me today- hope you’ve been inspired!
