See How You Can Get Creative!
1 – Now, why didn’t we think of this? Vintage music sheets serving as place mats! This lovely, simple idea is actually from a Christmas setting on Our Vintage Home Love. But you could select pieces to suit whatever your theme may be and start some real fun conversations among your guests!
2 – Why not a wedding garland from music sheets? So simple to DIY, using this basic how-to we found on Daily Fresh Idea (or dozens of similar ones on the web). You could personalize it by choosing sheets of songs that are your sentimental favorites!
3 – If you can’t easily find sheet music, print your own! Yes, we learned this neat trick via this DIY candle how-to by Gail at Can’t Stop Making Things. She downloaded music pdfs, then printed them out on white tissue paper (don’t worry, she explains how!). Then, she adhered the tissue printouts to the surface of the candles with a heat gun. Voila, your own decorative music candles!
4 – Music sheets in a bottle provide a perfect setting for an opera or music-inspired wedding celebration. We simply love this practical idea that turns mason jars into tealight holders! Find the easy tutorial on the blog of Deeds and Petunia.
5 – A stylish touch for your wedding table setting would be menu cards incorporating sheet music! We love the rustic chic look of this idea from Houzz.com. The sheet music actually forms a pocket for the menu tied with satin ribbon, then sits atop a vintage crocheted doily.
6 – For a vintage style wedding, these handcrafted paper cones from Vintage Twee couldn’t be more perfect. They’re made using 1920s and 1930s sheet music and filled with more shredded pieces—such a charming wedding toss idea!
7 – How fun would your favors look all wrapped up in your special song? Found via Pinterest (please help us acknowledge the original source!), this idea uses not only music-themed paper but the tag, too. It’s a guitar pick!
