I’m going to call myself on this before anyone else does. This idea is in a Pottery Barn catalog and it inspired many bloggers to make a paper wreath of their own. I really liked the look of them and thought it would be a fun project to try. If you’re going to throw up if you see one more blogger make a paper wreath, you may want to scroll down and check out my bathroom makeover instead. (I finally found where I originally saw this wreath. It was at The Shabby Nest. Thanks, Wendy!) After seeing the beauty and simplicity of these wreaths, I knew immediately that I wanted to make one out of the antique sheet music I found in my grandparent’s attic. If you don’t have antique sheet music, you could buy a new paino book (or print some free off of the Internet) and tea stain it.
No one will see this cardboard wreath base, so it does not have to be perfect. You just want it to be wide enough to provide stability and a good gluing surface.
