This beautiful Music Notes crochet garland will be perfect for those who love music! The idea of this Music Notes garland was inspired by one of my customers. She wanted me to create such garland for her kid’s room.

First, I want to share with you a story. As I came to the United States from another country, I speak with an accent. During my first Christmas here, my husband (note, that he was born in the US and speaks only English) and I got our first Christmas tree together, and I asked him if he had garland to decorate it.
He said “What? What did you say”? I thought he doesn’t understand what I said because of my accent. So I repeated unsure how to say it correctly “Garland?” and my husband said, “Garland? There is no such word!” My husband had never heard of such word before! After I showed him this word in the dictionary, he told me several times “It is an odd and uncommon word”, but now he uses it often!

First, I had to crochet music notes. The pattern for Music Notes Appliqué is available in my Etsy shop.
Then I blocked and starched the notes as they had a tendency slightly twist. Note it is normal for crocheted items to twist or curl, but we want our notes to be flat. For starching I was using undiluted Sta – Flo concentrated liquid starch.
Soak the notes with Sta-Flo starch or you can use other fabric stiffeners. Gently squeeze out any excess liquid. Place the notes on the pinning board. For a pinning board, you can use a corkboard, a sheet of styrofoam, or a piece of pressed cardboard.
Cover your pinning board with plastic wrap. Using rustproof pins, pin notes to a desired flat shape. Allow to completely dry before removing them.
For the string I used two strands of a thread size #3 and hook size F/5-3.75mm. I crocheted a chain about 70” long and left from each end about 7-10” for tying the garland. Then I arranged the notes and carefully sewed them on.
I hope you like this Music Notes Crochet Garland!
