Clearance Star to "Singing" Star

Ok...so the star doesn't literally sing...but since its covered in sheet music its "singing." There is just something so fun about decorating with sheet music. I love seeing what others Mod Podge it too, the possibilities are endless!





Anyways, I'm a sucker for stars so when I found this in the party clearance bin at Walmart I threw it into my basket with super speed. MINE!


Its just cheap plastic but totally has potential. First, I spray painted it white so that I wouldn't have to deal with any blue playing peek-a-boo under the Mod Podge-ing. 


Next, I measured pieces of a cardboard box to use as a stencil. Using said stencil, I cut the facets of the star. The sheet paper came from a freecycle pickup of piano books. Most were written in, but this was nearly brand new and usable. 

Pre-Mod Podge: you can see the spray painted blue
under the arranged sheet music. 

 Its floating around in my "star-studded bathroom" for now until it finds a more permanent home.
