1. COVER JARS TO CREATE CANDLE HOLDERS
All you need is a few old jars, some frenchy sheet music (mine came from The Graphics Fairy) and a few little finishing touches to create these VINTAGE FRENCH SHEET MUSIC CANDLES! I love the glow they add!
2. ADD IT TO A CENTERPIECE
Folded trees made from scrapbooking paper sheet music add the perfect touch to my SHABBY CHRISTMAS CENTERPIECE. The trees are so easy that the kiddos can help with this one!
3. MAKE A FOREST OF TINY TREES
Sheet music themed scrapbooking paper was once again the medium for these EASY VINTAGE PAPER TREES. I made them in several sizes and added them to a small silver tray.
And here's another version that is topped off with a tiny glittery star. Love it!
4. CREATE A WREATH
This one is my favorite...a SHEET MUSIC WREATH! A book of vintage sheet music found at Goodwill supplied more than enough material to make this beauty. It was the star of a sheet music themed Christmas mantel one year but I will tell you a secret...I love it so much that it stays out all year long!
5. DECOUPAGE SOME CANDLES
Here is another project from my music-themed Christmas mantel...these POTTERY BARN INSPIRED SHEET MUSIC CANDLES. They were so easy to make and waaaay less expensive!
6. ADD IT TO ORNAMENTS
Once again, here's an idea from my Goodwill sheet music stash...SHEET MUSIC CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS! They still pop up occasionally in my dough bowl arrangements all year 'round.
7. MAKE CANDLE COVERS
A few vases from Dollar Tree and a print-out of some Medieval sheet music (provided in the post) are almost all that you need for these WISTERIA INSPIRED SHEET MUSIC CANDLES. The script for the little tags is included as well.
8. MAKE ORIGAMI STARS
Here's one that I am working on for this year...fun origami stars! I'm experimenting with vintage sheet music and print-outs on aged paper. I will share the result with you when it's ready but think ornaments and garlands!
And there you have it...my favorite ways to use sheet music at Christmas! And stay tuned because I'm just getting started!
