The other day I tried to make one of those ever popular sheet music wreaths – because don’t ya know, EVERYONE who’s ANYONE has one.
Seriously Carin and I saw one in our Anthropologie store in the mall.
And although I’m against being a “follower” of trends, when Carin and I picked up a huge pile of sheet music at an estate sale a few weeks ago for $2, I figured I’d give it a go.
You can find all kids of tutorials on the web with a simple search (Which I suggest you do!) but I of course just rushed ahead and didn’t read any instructions. (And as a result I wound up burning myself about 5 times on each finger. I still can’t feel the tips of a few fingers, making typing
And because I didn’t read any instructions – I glued my paper on all funky. Which required me to need WAY more sheet music than I thought. So while I waited to get a few more sheets from Carin I used it as a centerpiece…
I had to come up with some way to fill it without making it look cheap and all wonky. So I played around and used my mad paper-folding skills. What? Doesn’t everyone sit around doing origami all day like my kids and I do? No? Well you should start.
I’m glad I didn’t read any directions and that I “screwed” it up. I’m glad it looks different from all those other wreaths floating around out there. And I like it all uneven and funky. Cause that’s just how I roll. That’s actually how my WHOLE FAMILY rolls. So it fits right in.
Sometimes the mistakes we make can turn into the best part of our projects.
Have a great weekend!
