Vintage Sheet Music Wreaths

I found a whole book of vintage, Beethoven, sheet music at my local thrift shop for $1!  I pulled it out just in time for Christmas decorating and created a couple sheet music, paper wreaths.

I love the natural, aged patina of this old sheet music. 

Sheet music wreaths are such an inexpensive way to dress up your holiday decor and you can add your own decorative touch to each one.  I used some pretty, cream ribbon to attacha bow to the top of this one.  The tiny star in the center is from a pack of wooden stars I bought at the craft store.  I stamped it with a fancy script stamp and then put glitter on the edges. 

I started out by using white glue, but found that it was much easier and faster to just use a hot melt glue gun for the whole thing.

Here is another version of the sheet music wreath.  I attached a wide, burlap ribbon as a wreath hanger for this one.

I attached two wooden stars to the center using the hotmelt glue gun. I covered the larger star with silver glitter and stamped the smaller star with the fancy script stamp.

These sheet music wreaths were fast, simple and fun to make! They have the added bonus of lasting year after year.  I already sold both of these wreaths at Loot, so I need to find time to make a few more.

They came out so pretty. I love the size you made them. I made a huge one but I would like to make a smaller one soon. Thanks for the inspiration:)

Those wreaths are so lovey, I have been planning to make one of these but haven't gotten to it yet. Hope mine turns out as lovely as yours!

They look absolutely beautiful! I made my first one of these last night! I used book pages but am loving your sheet music! I found the hot glue gun best too. You have inspired me to make another one! X

These are so pretty! I need to figure out how to makeo ne! Do you use a wreath base or just glue the little cones to each other? Such a beautiful piece for Christmas or I'd use one over my piano year rond! Merry Christmas! xoxo, Leena

Very pretty. I love how aged the paper is. It gives the wreath such a great color. Adore the stars too!

These are fab wreaths! I've been wanting to make one or some of these, but time is racing by. I'm thinking they could even work for Valentine's Day, using a heart in the center instead of a star! Thank you so much for sharing.

Gorgeous!! I love the look of aged paper too. I have some antique sheet music and I've been meaning to make one of these wreaths for a while and I think this might be just the time to do it! Thanks for sharing!
