Tablescaping With Old Sheet Music


I was given some old sheet music for free. I was thrilled with the possibility's it presented.



I decided to use it for a natural/neutral looking Valentine tablescape. I glue stick-ed some on wooden clothes pins to use in place of a napkin rings and cut out some heart shapes which could easily be used as place cards, set into the bowls.



I used lot's of texture



I used red New Zealand Tea Tree for a causal feel and to add a tiny bit of red.

I ran some of the sheet music through a paper shredder



I added heart cut outs




A close up of the clothes pin. This was fun and so easy, I think I'm going to become addicted to decorating clothes pins.......


I am addicted to crackle glass!









Some little terra cotta looking bird votive holders from The Dollar Store.



























This banner I made doesn't show up very well in the photo, but it says "Happy Valentines Day".

Your banner is adorable! I love the way you used the sheet music.

I like to craft with sheet music too but you would be surprised at the way people feel about repurposing books and things.

I really like the neutral tones you used for your V's day 'scape. All the textures make it interesting. The sheet music is a great decorative item! Very pretty vignette on your side table.

Pretty and calming...sometimes things are too brash and bold. Now I have some ideas for what I can use my trunk full of music I disliked when I took lessons--Bartok! Never liked it and now it will give me pleasure!! I also enjoyed the tea tree arrangement--that's unheard of here--but I have used tea tree oil. Is it the same plant?
