Did you like my post about musical instrument design ideas? Then I’m betting these sheet music crafts will be up your alley, too! If you’ve got old sheet music that hasn’t seen love since your childhood piano lessons, consider turning it into something you can enjoy and admire every day. (Of course, you could always keep an eye out for old sheet music at flea markets, too.) If you object to repurposing the original sheets for crafts, you can easily make copies on similarly-colored paper.
Old Sheet Music –> New Decoupaged Dresser
This idea for old sheet music from Marian Parsons serves another purpose: hiding imperfections like gouges or water marks on furniture. The lovely aged color of the music looks totally at home in this shabby-chic style setting, too.
Old Sheet Music –> New Dressed-Up Candles
Wrapping some old sheet music around tea light holders is a bright idea, as seen here from ShareMyCraft user CarolinaCottage. The warm color of the the paper makes for an especially soft, inviting candle glow.
Old Sheet Music –> New Holiday Decor
It’s never too early in the year to start thinking about the holidays, that’s what I say. If you feel the same way, check out our special Christmas in July package (it’s okay that it’s August, those ideas don’t expire!) and take a look at these next three crafts. I love these sheet music trees from Marian Parsons for an entryway display or perched atop a mantel. Head here for the how-to details.
Old Sheet Music –> New Place Setting
Using sheet music as the base for an elegant place setting is so simple, yet so effective. (You can even pick and choose the songs at each seat based on who will be sitting there for a personal touch.)
Old Sheet Music –> New Tree Topper
Is there anything Marian Parsons can’t do with sheet music? After seeing this tree topper and the ideas above, I think not! This sheet music beauty is a cool, unconventional alternative to the usual angel or star.
