Sheet Music Trees

I am definitely in the Christmas spirit!
I have so many ideas that I want to do with my family
I just can't stand it!
We have a tradition to cut down our Christmas tree 
the day after Thanksgiving.
And then of course all the decorations follow.
But until then, I thought I'd share how I made a sheet music Christmas tree.

Very simple.

Ya need a Styrofoam  tree, sheet music, sewing pins, lace and bells (or any other topper)

First you cut your music into strips- about 3 inches long and an inch wide.

Then you fold each strip in half and pin.
Around and around you go until you've filled your tree.
Then wrap a little lace around the top and hot glue on some jingly bells.

Happy crafting my friends!
