I love music.
So it’s only fitting that I have my room decorated with sheet music, right? :)
The idea came to me one day to have a musical border on the long wall in my room. I could only find one option for sale online though, and it was pricey.
It was time to get creative.
I found some songs that I’d printed out years ago and haven’t played in a long time (and didn’t know when I’d play them again), so I chose to “re-purpose” them. This border takes only a few supplies and not much time, and adds a lot of personality to a room (it would also be neat for a music room).
So without further adieu, here’s the tutorial:
Cut the Command Strips into sixths as shown in the picture. (Since these strips are quite strong, they can be cut into sixths and still hold the paper quite well.)
Arrange 5-6 sheets of music as desired and glue the pieces together where they overlap with a glue stick. Continue making these sections of wallpaper until you have as many as needed for the length of your wall.
Turn the sections of wallpaper over and adhere the pieces of command strips on every other sheet of music (or as needed).
Adhere to the wall, section by section. (My sister stood at a distance and made sure it all lined up properly.) Glue the sections together where they overlap. Add additional pieces of Command Strip if needed.
And…ta-da, you’ve made a musical border! :)
Do you enjoy making DIY decorations? What is your favorite project that you’ve made?
