I was bored...

So you know how your craft to do list is a mile long???? I see all of these ideas all of the time but I never find the time to try any of them. But not this time. The other night I actually stayed up a little late and played around. I bought this awesome old window from a yard sale last summer for $5.00 and it has been sitting in my basement. I thought of several ideas to use it for and just couldn't decide. Finally I just went for it and hung it on my wall. Then I decided to actually cross off something on my "crafts to try list" and  I made a paper wreath. I have seen these done all kinds of ways using book pages but, I was having a terrible time deciding on what book I would want to use. (I am really weird and I feel like things hanging on my wall have to have some kind of meaning. It's really frusterating because that means I have a horrible time buying art and I LOVE FUNKY art.) Anyways so I decided to skip the book and use sheet music of music that I just love and that means so much to our family. I love the way it turned out, but I need to figure something out to put in the middle, and I also need my husband to stop laughing at it and asking what on earth it is.(obviously he is not a blogger!! :) )

So I just rolled my pages up and hot glued them all together. Some of my music was very old and already colored and textured but some I used a brown ink pad and distressed the edges. I also had an old wreath that I had bought from the dollar store forever ago so I glued it all to that. Easy Peasy.
