It's time for another Project Monday!!!
The first Project Monday of 2011.
During the dreary post-Christmas days of January, I thought it would be a great time to share a lovely little project I came up with to finish off my last Project Monday...
Here's what you do:
Cut a dozen 2" wide strips from some old sheet music. Cut them length-wise.
Cut 8-10 1" strips from the same music, but cut these a couple of inches shorter.
Cut a large circle from cardboard and find the center. Using a pin, poke a hole in the center.
Punch a hole in both ends of each strip.
Bring ends together to form a loop, and poke a brad through the holes.
Keep looping and building onto that same brad until all strips are stacked on the brad - make sure you first use the 1", then the 2".
Insert the brad through the hole in the circle and bend the prongs of the brad back.
Arrange the loops so that they are evenly spaced.
Cut a few more strips for 'streamers' - both 2" and 1" wide - and cut them at staggered lengths.
Cut the ends into a 'V'.
Glue these between the cardboard circle and the loops.
Make a pretty hanger out of #19 gauge wire and....
|I glued an old book page onto the back of the cardboard circle ~ the back should always be as pretty as the front!|
