Two years ago I received a Pottery Barn catalog that had some really pretty sheet music candles and paper stars. I immediately thought how easily I could re-create them with the Early 1900's Music Background and a few supplies. In addition to this being an easy project, it is an inexpensive project. The candle I used below was from the dollar store. You can't get too much cheaper than that! I shared the project 2 years ago and it was a hit. I figured all the new followers might appreciate it too. You can find the original post with the directions right here.
A set of these candles in different sizes would make a wonderful gift or even just a single one wrapped in cellophane and a pretty bow.
These origami stars are easy to fold up and look so pretty filling up a glass vase or cannister.
