This project has been a long awaited one. Do you have a project or a few that you seem to never be able to get to? This sure was one of them for me! If you have been following me for a while you know that I have a bit of a crush on Music Sheets. It all started with a Side Table and then moved on to some coasters and now onto a Vintage Farmhouse Music Sheet and paper Doily Wreath Frame.

From the Project Barn
The recent one room makeover challenge of my daughter’s bedroom was the push I needed to make this project happen.
Step 1 – Cut out a circle on the cardboard 7 1/2″ wide. Find the centre of the circle and mark with a dot. Using the base of a champagne glass trace a circle around that dot. This acts as a guide for when you’re glueing on your music sheet cones.
Step 2 – Cut the music sheets in half. Then using the double sided tape stick the edges of the music sheet down. You only need about a centimetre of tape.
Handy Hint– If you start rolling the cone from the corner of the page this forms the bottom of the cone. Seems to make it easier to roll.
Step 4 – Roll and secure the paper doilies the same way as the music sheets. Then using your glue gun start sticking the music sheets down keeping to the circle that you drew on earlier as a guide. Then stick down the doily cones on top.
Step 5 – Prime the metal lid and once dry paint using the black paint. Let dry and then apply a second coat.
Step 6 – Using a loop of jute and an old button, attach it to the back of the cardboard for a hook. I made a bit of a boo boo with finding the centre of the cardboard so that is th reason you can see the marks. They should be on the other side.
Step 6 – Using your Silhouette Cameo cut out the word hope with black Vinyl. Trace around the metal lid onto some music sheet. Cut out the circle and stick to the centre of the lid. Then using some transfer tape apply the lettering to your metal lid. Or use your letter stickers if you don’t have a Silhouette machine. Using your glue gun attach to the centre of your wreath.
Step 7 – Paint your frame in chosen chalk paint colour and distress. Wax to seal. Hang your frame and position your wreath and hang. If you don’t want to put another hole in the wall you can attach the wreath to the frame using some jute.
As much as the rolling of the music sheet and doily cones was a fiddly process the outcome was well worth it! It now takes pride of place above my daughter’s bed! For more details on her room makeover head on over here !
