deck the walls with sheets of music

yes, i too have jumped on the sheet music bandwagon.  please forgive me for burdening you with a few more wreaths.  having come across a mother-load of vintage music books from mr. 1829's grandma, i had to do something with them.  they really do make great gifts for the musically inclined and an awesome neutral wall decor.

while i was laid up recently with a lower back issue, i rolled sheets of vintage music and glued away.  when i had about 50 or so, i started glueing them to piece of cardboard.  the round cardboard inserts from frozen pizza's are perfect & lightweight, or so i found on the second wreath.  and if you want a small wreath, use smaller music books or cut the pages in first attempt was much larger than i had planned but i love it anyway.

the second attempt was for a gift and i used smaller sheets of music and two rows of cones.  i found that simple white glue worked best for holding the cones together as well as attaching to cardboard and each other.  the back of the cardboard ring was covered with burlap to give it a finished look along with a miniature piece of sheet music and a personalized message for our friends.
the words are fitting for the friendship we share
i won't bore you anymore with wordy descriptions...i will let the pictures do the talking.
love the notes penciled on the pages
