Upcycled Sheet Music Crafts





Why not celebrate your love for music by upcycling old sheet music into unique one of a kind creations and home decor?



Where can you find old sheet music?
Garage sales and flea markets are good places to start, or if you prefer, print your own sheet music to use in crafts (see the last links at the end of this post for a few free printables.) 

Paper is one of the  most versatile craft materials. It can be folded, drawn on, painted on, cut and pasted, glued, shaped, decoupaged, and even molded and sculpted into beautiful shapes and designs. 

Book and book page art became popular a few years ago, so why not show your love for music by using upcycled sheet music pages in your artwork? Can't find any in poor enough shape to upcycle or use for crafts? Make copies and use those.

  3. OMG, I love all of these! I've played piano for years and accumulated a lot of extra sheet music in the process. The wreaths, envelopes, and decoupaged furniture are all brilliant!

  4. Very cool! Surprising to see my apple but happy! (Hey that's ME!) lol I love using old sheet music. I especially like dense crazy notes like ragtime pieces. I like the decoupaged dresser but it is hard to pick a fav!

  7. I found pretty sheet music books for .39 at my local thrift shop. I've accumulated them with the intention of incorporating them into crafts. Thanks for the ideas!

  8. Thank you for the wonderful ideas! My mom just gave me a bag of old sheet music that I had when I used to play the piano and I was wondering what I wanted to do with them. The luminary and the coasters are a tie for my favorites.
