Antique Sheet Music Flourishes

Sunday, 18 November 2012


I have been passing the time over the last couple of weeks revitalising some of my hat boxes which were looking a little shabby and past their best.

I decided to spray them with black spray paint then downloaded and printed some pictures of  Audrey Hepburn and Marylin Monroe plus other miscellaneous photos that I thought would be suitable for decoupage.


Below are a selection of pictures taken from magazines and the internet.

I have kept a set of templates which can be photocopied and used again at a future date.

When the hat boxes were  covered sufficiently with spray the next stage was  to paste the decoupage prints to the top and sides of the box. I finished with a coat of clear varnish to protect them.

Below the finished product.

I have now started box number three to complete the set.  Feeling inspired why not decorate some boxes to give Christmas gifts in which can then be utilised afterwards for storage.
