Sheet Music Fall Wreath

Funny story: I actually made the base for this wreath back in June with absolutely no intention of using it for fall. I simply wanted to make a sheet music wreath. After I rolled the sheet music & glued it all together, I wasn't super pleased with the middle area. It looked unfinished. So, I set it aside, waiting for an idea to spruce up the centre.



There it sat, in my craft room, all summer. Only this weekend did I get inspired with an idea. It was easy too!



I cut a circle out of corrugated cardboard & hot glued it on.

Then, I hot glued on the clothes pins. 

And this is my favourite part: I clipped in the paper leaves (from Dollar Tree) & the letters which I cut out with my Cricut. The great thing is, after fall, I can switch out the leaves & "Happy Fall" for something more seasonal or something totally different!



It now has a proud home on my living room. I really like how it looks with the plum walls.


Yay! I'm excited that I was able to come up with a solution for something I wasn't sure would pan out.
