There are so many ways that items can be repurposed and turned into something new. Piano sheet music
can be used in a multitude of ways to decorate a space or bring an item to life again. Many people use this type of decor when going with a shabby chic theme, which touches on soft, vintage appeal.
A really beautiful item to have in the home or studio is a piece of furniture that has sheet music printed on it or transferred onto the surface itself. Find an old table, side table or sideboard that can be transformed and given a new breath of life. Using Mod Podge, the sheets of paper with musical notes can be decoupaged onto the wood of the table.
You could further distress the piece to really get the right feeling of shabby chic and vintage. You could also purchase an antiquing stain, which is easily found at any hardware. The beauty of staining is that it will randomly soak into parts of the paper, create aged spots that have a wonderful effect.
Christmas time is a great time to use sheet music to decorate, especially if it is carols. Create an awesome wreath out of the paper by rolling each sheet into a conical shape from the corner. Snip of the ends of some of the cones to get shorter cones and use them to layer up in a circular shape. Use a wooden circle base or simply cut one out of cardboard for an inexpensive alternative.
Keep going around and adding more cones until the circle is completely hidden. The wreath will look like a fantastic starburst of music. Finish off the center of the wreath with a great ornament like a snowflake or tie a huge bow in a rich color like red for the season. To create an even more dramatic effect, age the pieces of paper before beginning, either by using a light stain wash or watercolor wash, or by “baking” the paper for a crispy, aged effect.
You can make ornaments for your Christmas tree using the music paper, as well. Papier mache some gift boxes or baubles that will last forever, varnish them and tie ribbon in bows for a final effect. You can draw on the decorations with glitter patterns. Kids love to help make these ornaments.
Make gifts out of this kind of paper that people will be able to use as well as enjoy visually. One example is to make dining room place mats using larger sheets of paper printed with music. It’s a great gift for a wedding or anniversary couple and works well in a properly themed environment. Place mats out of music paper can even be used in a wedding as part of the decor. Use the couple’s song for an extra touch.
Another great way to add a personal touch to a rustic decor for a wedding would be to use the music of the couple’s favorite songs to wrap mason jars containing candles. These could be used to line the bride’s walkway or at the reception as part of a centerpiece. They could also be used throughout the venue as accent decor.
