Music Wreath for Melody

A few months ago, my friend Melody was hanging out at my place, and she noticed the book wreath I have hanging on my wall. I took it down and showed her how it was made. So when her birthday rolled around, I thought I’d make her her very own version.

I searched far and wide for music scores to use. Not only is my friend’s name Melody, but she also loves playing music, so music paper seemed more fitting than an old novel. I finally found some scores, discarded from UMass Lowell, and ripped them up into smaller pieces for gluing.

I actually like how the edges of the pages are slightly fuzzy from ripping. The music score also gives the wreath an entirely different look, and I’d love to see wreaths made of books and music paper hanging side-by-side.
