Graphics Fairy Sheet music wreath using OLD CD

I love resharing this wreath!
Come see how easy it is to create your own!
(You can follow me on INSTAGRAM to keep up with what I have been working on) so I thought I would share an Oldie but a Goodie!
Here is one of my favorites. My sheet music Christmas wreath.!

Good Monday Morning my Beauties! Well Its official...
I have caught my kids CRUD. :(  Luckily
I had gotten this project I have been wanting to do done
before the wonderful virus set in.

I have a stock pile of old sheet music that I had gotten at a bag at a thrift shop for $1.
Some of its really old and I decided not to touch that stuff, but the rest is 70's and 80's classical.
So I thought I would use those to make my wreath. BUT I didn't have a wreath form. It hit me while
I was in my CRAP/CRAFT room that I have a bunch of old scratched Cd's in there.
They are round and sturdy and I thought an added bonus that a MUSIC wreath was going to be put on an old CD :)
(Bonus if you don't have sheet music you can go over to the Graphics Fairy and
she has vintage sheet music you can print off)

I started rolling my half sheets of sheet music and hot gluing them when they were rolled.
I then hot glued them to the CD working in a opposite pattern. (kinda like how you take the lug nuts off a tire..:))

I kept adding layers and then as I wanted it fuller I cut the half sheets in half again and made a middle smaller rolled section. When that was set I went over to the Graphics Fairy and got this cute little Vintage Angel

I added her to the middle using my hot glue gun and then used a piece of some silver sprigs that I had left over from Christmas Decorating.

My Christmas Sheet music wreath now hangs on my front door.

I love the adorable little greeting that she is to people coming into our home.
Well, thats all I have for today..Hopefully by the time you read this
I am on my way to feeling MUCH better.
I hope you all have a BEAUTIFUL day!

I love the vintage angel and you know I love the sheet music. The special touch to me is the silver sprig(s). They all compliment each other so well. The wreath is imaginative and beautiful! Thanks for sharing it with us. Reia from

How pretty, Karin!! I've tried one of those wreaths before and it came out square, so huge props to you for perfect execution. ;) You and I... Soul sisters, I tell ya. Crudville here too. I was so sick at church yesterday morning, I nearly fell off the chair when we sat down after singing. LOL!!! All afternoon and night in bed - Nyquil Nighttime last night and Dayquil this morning. I feel like something the cat dragged in. Hope you feel better soon!!!! Cuz I know I feel like death warmed over. :(

Love it! It's a green way to upcycle old CDs, too. Clever you. I had that virus also and I took the Airborne samples I received in the mail and it really does lessen the misery. Hope you feel better soon.

Brilliant! Such a great way to recycle. Hope you are all better very soon!

Awesome! The only thing I would add is a couple of sprays of glimmer mist. I'll be making a few if these soon... thanks for the inspiration!

Have a great week!

I LOVE your wreath. I've been collecting all the stuff for my own sheet music wreath for my mantel. I've only had to buy the wreath piece itself so far. I can't wait to get started! Just beautiful!! Hope you're feeling better soon. ~ Jamie

You just pull one amazing trick out of your hat after another! Whoda thunk it? A CD as the back of a sheet music wreath!
