Vintage Sheet Music Wreaths

1.5 Hours
Medium

One of my favorite decorations in my home are the vintage sheet music wreaths. I saw them on other creative blogs and wanted to try for myself. I'm glad I did. I've been making them for a couple years now, and sell some locally as wells as gifts. Do you make these too?
Love the paper. The patina is so pretty, and the paper is soft. A little brittle in points and some trimming is necessary.

I like to make the cones so the name of the page shows. This paper was especially pretty as it had some age and wear.

Cones in progress. I always twist the cone and then hot glue the seam.

This is a larger wreath measuring 26" across. I trimmed that one odd cone sticking out of the top. I was trying to fill a space. Fail.

This wreath is about 16" across. I do try to stack the cones so all the points are oriented in the same direction. I try... didn't say it always works out!

For the back, I cut a cardboard, circle  cover with a coordinating page. I try to find something interesting in case it's hanging on a mirror. Please ignore the goofed up cone with all the glue showing. Not sure what I was thinking!

the back of a wreath. I poke a hole and loop the string or ribbon through before adding cones. Saves some time and aggravation.
