The Friday How-to–fabric meets music

did you make it through the week?

fabric meets music today…a nice combo and easy diy.

get out your modge podge and let’s get started!

you will need:

1.  a Styrofoam ball or found object of your choice.  i picked up the finial at the Lobby for cheap!

2.  decoupage such as Modge Podge.  Glossy works best.

3.  your music.  you are going to tear in to strips.

4.  your fabric.  you are also going to tear this in to strips.

first:  tear or cut your music in to approx. 1/2″ to 1″ wide strips depending on the size of your ball or object.

second:  using tape or a tape runner attach your strips around the ball turning the ball as you go.  taping the paper down first helps hold it in place before you apply the decoupage.

 third:  after you have taped down your paper strips, apply a coat of decoupage all around the ball.  don’t be afraid to fold down parts of your paper that are sticking up….the end result will be a smooth covered ball/object.

fourth:  allow your decoupaged object to dry completely.

fifth:  tear your fabric into 1/2″-1″ strips.

sixth:  using straight pins to hold in place, wrap a few strips around your ball/object.  after you have the look you desire, you can hot glue the ends of the fabric to your object.  you may also want to put a coat of decoupage on the fabric as well.  i did so on the finial and it turned out way cool.

and you are done!

i found a stick in the backyard and poked it through the bottom of this one….

embellish as you find fulfilling and you can use more fabric than music or the other way around!

enjoy the weekend…and a wonderful father’s day to all you great dads!
