Vintage Paper Wreath with Hymnal Sheets



My newest crafty idea. I LOVE making these! They aren't the easiest or fastest things I have ever made but I really enjoy the process, and they are so pretty to look at!

I made one out of an old book and the others out of a vintage hymnal from my church's choir room. My honey scrounged around for one. But don't worry, it's ok, he has permission, he is the worship leader, I don't think he minds taking a book from himself for his honey and her crazy ideas!

I do have a few of these in my Etsy shop {Shameless, I know!}

And because I am so behind from my move, I thought I would just share one little Christmas ornament I made. I attached these on to the gifts. They were super fun to make and I really like the way they turned out.

{{ It has come to my attention that there is a GREAT tutorial out there on how to make these ornaments. You could change the look for any season. I wish I had known earlier that this tutorial was out there, I would have shared it sooner! }}

I love it! I'm in the process of doing one with vintage looking scrapbook paper and I'm crossing my fingers that it looks even half as goo as what you did here:)

I love the idea of using sheet music for this. It's really beautiful, and you are clearly very talented!

I love this idea! Anything using vintage sheet music is always a fun project. :)

I recently potted some succulents in my house using some clay pots and tiny pitchers I've collected through previous vacations. They always just sat around collecting dust and now they have a little bit of green life to help brighten my day.

Glad I found your blog. Have a lovely weekend... oh and LOVE your blog name. :)

I love both old books and wreaths so what a beauteous idea. Especially love the fleur-de-lis in the center also.
