I love miniature trees around the holidays. They fit perfectly on window sills, bookcases, desks, and even on top of presents. This tutorial for Sheet Music Miniature Christmas Trees is a new favorite look that appeals to my love of rustic and farmhouse style. Using up something that otherwise might have been thrown away is so much fun, and this is a great little addition to your holiday villages this year.
Sheet Music Miniature Christmas Trees
If you have a holiday village display, you can add a little natural rustic element to it with these trees. They are super easy to make and really are absolutely charming. The slightly yellowed look of the pages is appealing for the modern farmhouse style I love that is so popular in the last few years.
Where Do I Get Sheet Music Paper?
One of my favorite things to do is to print this off on my own copy or craft paper. You can find many options online and then simply print so you know you aren't using a book that could otherwise be great for a musician. Another option is to ask at schools, thrift shops, or even churches for old worn books or hymnals that may have been headed for the recycling bin. If they are torn, stained, or lost their binding, you can reuse them and give them new life!
- Sheet music pages
- Pencil or pen
- Craft glue
How to Make Sheet Music Miniature Christmas Trees
Begin by folding 2-3 pieces of sheet music in half.
At the crease, draw half of a Christmas tree. If you need a stencil, you can create one before hand on cardboard or use half of a tree shaped cookie cutter)
Cut out the design. Unfold to create the tree shape.
Repeat, using the previously cut tree as a stencil. Cut out at least 5-6 trees of equal shape and size.
Start gluing the trees together by gluing one half to the next as shown. The idea is to glue 5 or 6 halves together and then connect the end pieces when complete.
Your sheet music tree should be set aside to dry. Once dry it should be able to stand on its own. You can then create a forest of sheet music Christmas trees in all different sizes!
