I used the antique sheet music graphic that you see above, you can find it HERE. But really, you could use any of the typography images on my site that you like for this, or perhaps you have your own.
I’ve included a supply list and instructions below:
1) A printed copy of the sheet music shown above.
2)French Pendant Crystal Prisms – I got mine HERE they come in 3 sizes.
3) Small scissors
4)White Glue – I used Durwin Rice’s “Under Glass Glue” you can find it HERE.
6)Mod Podge or a spray sealer
Step 1: Print up the antique sheet music, or your chosen graphic, and cut out desired portions. You can trace around your prism with a pencil before cutting out. (Hint – Depending on your printer you may want to seal this with a spray sealer first before glueing. I didn’t and my ink bleed only a tiny bit, which didn’t bother me really.)
Step 2: Add a small amount of the white glue to the back of the prism, using a brush or your fingers to coat evenly and then apply your paper cut out (face down onto the glue). Remove any large air bubbles by smoothing down with your fingers or a brayer. Then allow 30 minutes or more to dry.
Step 3: Once dry, coat the back of your piece with a sealer. I used Mod Podge but you could use a spray sealer too. And allow to dry. Depending on how you are going to use these, you could leave the back as it is, or finish it off with paint, decorative paper, markers, glitter, lace etc.
I used mine to decorate a package with but you could use these in so many ways. You could embellish a candle, hang them on a Christmas tree, make a pendant or earrings, or you could do a whole chandelier in these, wouldn’t that be gorgeous! I hope you liked this fast and fun project!
