Cut Sheet Music
Use scissors or a paper cutter to cut sheet music into approximately 1-1/2-inch-wide strips (Image 1). Cut "fringe" that is approximately 1 inch long and 1/4 inch wide along one side of each sheet music strip (Image 2). Be careful not to cut all the way through the sheet music.
Roll each fringed sheet music strip into a tight cylinder (Image 1). Unroll and gently use your fingers to separate the fringe (Image 2).
Using a preheated hot glue gun, apply glue to the base of the tree form (Image 1). Immediately press top edge of a sheet music strip onto hot glue. Hold for a few seconds until glue hardens and cools (Image 2). Tip: Hot glue can burn skin, so wear thin work gloves to protect your skin, if desired.
