Need some musical art to spruce up your studio space? Try out this upcycled DIY cassette wall art inspired by HGTV Handmade. It's a great way to use those old cassettes you no longer listen to!
Watch the video and/or follow the written instructions below to make your own!
board (I used the front of an old drawer)
picture hanging hardware/supplies
sheet music (you can look for some at your local thrift store, or print some from the Petrucci Music Library)
glue (I used school glue and hot glue)
old cassette tapes
Step 1: Measure & attach the picture hanger.
Step 2: Sand front of board.
Step 3: Add the sheet music to the board in a decoupage-like manner. You can mix water with the glue if you wish.
Step 4: Allow to dry.
Step 1: Remove the tape from the cassettes (optional). You might want to use this for another project.
Step 2: Remove any labels and sand.
Step 3: Paint with the necessary number of coats. Make sure to cover the front and sides.
Arrange cassette tapes on board and glue down with hot glue.
After your art has dried, hang it up in your studio to enjoy!
