I love using vintage sheet music for OOAK crafts! I drooled over a metal Pottery Barn Wreath which inspired me to repurpose some sheet music into a pretty coffee stained wreath.

I used coffee and watered down acrylic stain to make this sheet music wreath. It was fun to use Stickles glitter glue to make fantasy glittery leave veins. The wet coffee and acrylic stain will work it's magic on the sheet music to give the movement and "crinkliness" of actual maple leaves.

This is the wreath that was so inspired me on the Pottery Barn Website.

This is the pattern I used to make each maple leaf.

I used coffee and watered down stain for all the leaves. After they were dry I used Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue to make glittery veins and attached a golden wire for the stem.

Use a piece of paper with hot glue to attach the wire stem.

Wrap each leaf stem on to the wreath form and use a skinny pencil to curl the ends.

Vary the colors of the leaves. I used the Pottery Barn Metal Wreath as the inspiration for my leaf placement.

    As a professional musician and independent music teacher, I have a LOT of sheet music that's either too tattered from years of use or that's been given to me that I can't use. I've been saving those for craft projects, and I LOVE this wreath. Thanks so much for sharing this!

    This blew my mind and is way more interesting because it certainly looks like real leaves! Congrats on having a wonderful outlet for your creativity!
