Antique Sheet Music Christmas Trees…in 15 minutes or less!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to show you a very quick and easy craft project to you can make for Christmas…and it seriously takes 15 minutes or less! 
Here they are…my Antique Sheet Music Christmas Trees!

I won a HUGE stack of antique sheet music from Ebay a few weeks ago and I’ve been having a ball making different things from them!
If you don’t have access to old sheet music, Karen from The Graphics Fairy, has printable sheet music too!

You remember when I told you to save the bases from the plastic wine glasses in my last post “How to make Christmas Cloche Ornaments?” Well this is the project I was telling you to save them for!  These are the wine glasses I got from the Dollar Tree that have the bases in them I was talking about….

I literally took little dowel rods that I purchased from Walmart’s craft aisle, and wrapped some white floral tape around the bottom to make them just thick enough so they would stick down inside the wine glass bases securely…like this.  (I cut the dowels into three different lengths so the trees would be at three different levels)

I rolled my sheet music into cones, taped them into place, then trimmed off bottoms until they looked even…

Then I plopped them down onto my wooden dowel stands, and walla…..Christmas trees!  (to make it an even easier craft, you could just make the sheet music cones and set them down on some candle holders of varying heights too!)

Tada!  I told you it was fast and easy!  After looking at these pictures though, I think I need to trim the one on the right off just a wee bit more on the bottom…still not quite straight. Oh well, they are cute, and would look even sweeter with a little fake snow around the bottoms! I’ll get right on that!

Hope you all have a VERY Merry CHRISTmas!
