Ah these diy sheet music roses are so cute. Make complete centerpieces out of them or stagger them in with your real flowers. Perfect for the couple who loves music. Great tutorial from Rebecca over at My Girish Whims.
- Sheet music
- Silhouette (optional, or just scissors)
- Tea, kettle, flat pan
- Hot glue
- Glass bottle
- Spray paint
- Fabric & cord scraps
Step 1: Prepare your sheet music. I wanted my flowers to look more antique, so I dyed the sheet music using tea. Pour some hot water onto tea bags in a flat pan and let them tea seep for a bit.
Step 2: Soak your sheet music pages in the tea for a few minutes, and then take them out and let them dry. I laid them out on a cookie sheet while they dried.
Step 3: While the paper is drying, prepare your vase for the flowers. I just spray painted a glass snapple bottle.
Step 4: After the sheet music has dried, load it into your silhouette and cut out the 3D paper rose shape. Don’t have a silhouette? You can just cut it out using scissors, the shape is not that difficult.
Step 5: Form the roses by rolling the paper cutout tightly around a pencil or pen. I added a dab of hot glue occasionally so they would keep their shape better.
Step 6: I made the stems for the flowers by twisting two pieces of green wire together, and then hot gluing it to the inside of the flower.
