I used 2 of the paint canvases size 5×7 from the Dollar Tree.
I then used 5 of the Jenga blocks to make the cross. I glued the cross inside the back of one of the canvases.
Then I took the battery fairy lights
I took a sheet of music that I found and printed off the Internet and put it on the front of the Canvas with mod podge
Then I glued the other canvas to the back of the canvas with the cross to make a box.
I trimmed the edges with rope and made a little rope bow added a few twigs of flowers. Then glued it to the candlestick base.
I added a bow to the candlestick and that’s it.
I also wanted my music sheet to look old. So I used the instant coffee trick to make them look yellow and aged. This was very easy to do.
