I love the way it turned out and just the look of it. I am all about vintage and it looked vintage to me with the antique sheet music.
After all of the work of inking the edges of the music and turning the sheets into cones and then hot gluing them all together I was kind of over it. I also finished around 2am so that might have killed some of my enthusiasm right there. Anyway, I decided to wait a few days to do the wreath. With the busyness of the Christmas season I never did get around to finishing it. It has been taking the majority of my scrapbook work surface since then, so today I decided it was time to finish the thing! It was only about a quarter of the way done and since it is such a HUGE wreath it actually took several hours to finish with inking the edges and everything from start to finish. It was sooooo worth it though! And, bonus, now I have my scrap area back!
Coming together. I had to make LOT of cones!!!
Once I had enough cones made to complete the wreath I hot glued some cardboard strips into ring and then glued the cones the that. The whole process was very labor intensive and I have no desire to make another one in the near future! But it turned out beautiful and is one of my favorite things in my house right now!!
You really can’t tell how big it is from this shot but it is almost 2 1/2 feet across.
It is beautiful and makes a big statement. I think it would look good at Christmas with it’s matching baby on top of the tree, but without Christmas decorations in the house it doesn’t scream holiday, it just looks simple, stunning, and compliments the rest of my decor.
If I had the inclination to make another (which I don’t!!!) I think It would look really pretty with the edges dipped in pink or red glitter for valentines day :) Even without the glitter I have non-permanent plans to dress this little puppy up for Valentines though!
