Sheet Music Paper Christmas Tree

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving up at my moms house...the food, the fun and a little crafting with my sister! We were Inspired by Forever Decorating's sheet music Christmas tree that. I highlighted on my blog last week so my sister and I decided to make some of our own. Ours didn't turn out quite like Forever Decorating's..but we still love them.
We made our cones out of old cardboard gift boxes that mom had, and cut them up and rolled them into cones..we're being "green" aren't we? Then mom found some old sheet music out in the garage and so we began the process of cutting each sheet in half and folding each sheet into cone shapes and taping them...no perfection required.
Then we started hot glueing them onto the cone starting at the bottom...fiddling with some as we went along to make them lay correctly. Adding rows upon rows until it covered the cone.

To make the little banner..we started with beige colored cardstock and found a polka dot background on printshop and a simple font and printed out each letter. We cut out the letters and backed them with white card stock and glued them onto some twine. Cut out a few snowflakes from printer paper and glued the banner on the tree.

For a simpler look you could just add gold ribbon tied in a bow for the top. The paper tree tutorial is on Forever Decorating HERE

So cute and fluffy.
