Sheet Music Candles ~

DIY | Holiday Inspiration


Super easy and inexpensive candles for your holiday decor.
I started with a few of these from the Dollar Tree:

Grabbed a few sheets of music and cut them down to size:

A little double stick tape and viola:

 I love the glow through the sheet music. 

The first one I did, I actually decoupaged it on, but it was bubbly and didn't look very good (at least up close). Plus the double stick tape was way easier and less time consuming.

If you wanted you could decorate these to your hearts delight - maybe even a little glitter around the top edge? But I must say, I really like the simple understated look of these. I think these would look great year round!

These are such a wonderful, classic look. I need to get to Dollar Tree but every time I go in I come out with about $20 worth of stuff :)
I always enjoy your projects.

Great!! I did some of these YEARS ago as gifts, when I used to hand stamp my own Christmas cards :) THAT was years ago...I love it...I am planning on doing this to pillar candles to "knock off' the pottery barn candles...thanks for sharing

I bought a case of these candles from Dollar Tree because I have been having so much fun with them! In fact I just did a guest post about them yesterday. I love yours..they are better than the Pottery Barn sheet music candles!

Thanks so much, I'm going to try it too! Where'd you get your sheet music? Maybe go look at old books at Goodwill? Let me know if you get a chance, stay blessed!
