when I made my music page paper wreath awhile back..here...I had cut the paper into 3 1/2" squares and also had cut some at 7". I used the 3 1/2" for that project and with the leftover 7" I decided to make another wreath. Only larger. After I got started I realized that I didn't have enough of the music paper to make the entire wreath so I spaced them out and scratched my head and wondered...what to do?
You might recall that I have a fully loaded craft room. Full of lots of projects I will only complete in my mind or if I life another fifty years that is! Anyway my solution was to try scrapbook paper. I really liked working with the weight of the paper compared to the sheet music but beware that the risk factor for paper cuts is increased by the thousands. Round and round I went making paper cones and gluing them onto the wreath. (I used a piece of lightweight cardboard again only slightly larger than the last one.) And voila!
To finish off the center of this one I took a piece of coordinating scrapbook paper and wrapped it around a canning jar lid (without the ring), then glued it onto the wreath. Then I added a little hanger in the back made from twine and hung it on the mirror in my foyer. I'm really pleased at how it turned out..sorry for the bad lighting in the photos, it was late in the day. I am going to spray it with a light coat of clear shellac and then hang it on my YELLOW door! What will I think of next?
