These vintage sheet music wreaths are hands down the favorite wreath, out of all the different wreaths I've made recently, at a huge local show recently. I make these when ordered, so please allow at least 10 business days before shipment. These festive wreaths make the perfect gift for that special musician in your life, and are ultimately practical, because they can be used year round. I found stacks of vintage piano sheet music books I'd saved over 25 years when I was preparing for this fall's piano students whom I teach. I hated to throw out the music, and decided I would re-purpose it into something beautiful. This new design was such fun to create, and I'm pleased with how it turned out! I personally cut each piece of music, rolled, folded, and crimped it, and wove it through the strands of this grapevine wreath, securing it with permanent adhesive to make this lovely wreath. It could be hung with or without a ribbon, or suspended from ribbon, or it could even be used as a large candle ring or a wedding centerpiece...and I'm sure you'll think of more year round uses for this piece :) It measures 23-24" round.
Please NOTE: Pics 3,4 and 5 were made prior to my current design. In the past I did not round the edges. Now I cut and round the edges so that the wreath appears more "ruffled" as shown in PHOTOS 1,2 and 6.
In separate listings I'm also offering these made out of 100 year old law books, medical books, gardening books, Shakespeare, and southern prose and poetry, all antique books.
Because I used actual music (not copies of vintage music, but the actual music) the paper in this is heavier, and the grapevine base (which I painted off white) is more substantial than the foam based wreaths you see elsewhere. These are time consuming to make, but so worth the time and effort. I'll also include some extra pieces of the music, just in case things get jostled in shipping, even though we take utmost care to carefully and tediously pad and pack the larger items we ship. I do ship internationally normally, but I'm sorry~ items this large make international shipping not feasible for you or for me:(

Stunning wreath ... but I knew it would be. This is the third wreath I have purchased from this vendor. My friend loves it ... it is hanging on the wall now. Thank you again for excellent quality and first-rate service.

This is as beautiful as in the picture. I love that a grapevine wreath was used for the back, which makes the entire piece very high quality. Looks great in my dining room, opposite my music room!

BEWARE. After I inquired about my order as it was not shipped when advertised (after 13 business days had passed) and I had received absolutely no communication that it would be late, Seller cancelled the order and refunded my money. Seller did this after asking me whether or not I still wanted the wreath and once I replied that I did still want it, but wanted to understand when it would be shipped, she cancelled the order. Now I am back to square one for finding a wreath and lost 13 business days in the process. I am new to using etsy and this seller's actions harm the entire community and erode trust. Very discouraged etsy buyer. :(
