We recently moved into a lovely home in the Chicagoland area. The home is full of character, which I love. For one of the bedrooms’ palettes I’ve chosen dark wood/metal statement furniture and a variety of soothing white textures (sheet music decoupaged night stand, vintage white linens, script storage boxes, white wall shelves) . Accents of red and green are found here and there (red window panel, green throw, etc).
However, the wall above the bed needed something….something with character, a monochromatic white color….maybe 3D and movement. After a couple months of thinking, brainstorming and musing, I decided to create sheet music flowers.
You can make them too! All you need is paper and glue (like Elmer’s glue). These pretty flowers are very easy to create – not to mention quite inexpensive!:
- Cut long petal shapes out of paper (sheet music, newspaper, paper bags, scrapbook paper, etc).
- Glue the tips together to create the flower shape (I did large petals first, let dry…I then did a smaller petal set, let dry…. Once they were both dry, I glued them together.
- You can attach these beauties to the wall with tape or with a pin. I chose a pin, because when a breeze flows through the window, the flowers will look as if they are floating across the wall.
