This tabletop music stand is ONLY made out of paper! It is quite simple to make, and it can be constructed in one afternoon. Lightweight and easy to carry, you can conveniently practice your instrument anywhere in the house! Just follow these simple steps, and you'll have a stand like mine in no time!

  • 38 sheets of printer paper
  • 1 sheet of sheet music (or sheet music from online that you printed out)
  • hot glue gun
  • tape
  • pencil
  • scissors

That's all you need!

Step 1: Roll Up the Paper

Ready to roll up 38 sheets of printer paper and 1 sheet of sheet music? Let's go!

Grab your pencil and a sheet of paper. Put the pencil on the corner of the paper and start tightly rolling the paper up with the pencil inside. Once it looks like your pencil is about to be concealed entirely by the roll of paper, slide it out and keep rolling tightly until you have rolled the entire paper up. Hold the tube with one hand as you rip a piece of tape with the other. Stick it to the roll, covering up the end on the outside. Place the tube aside and reach for another sheet of paper.

Because this process is tedious, I recommend listening to some upbeat music to keep the paper rolling!

Thank you, now I can sit anywhere and play my violin with my great table stand!
Thank <em>you</em> for reading my instructable! I am so happy I could help! Enjoy your new stand, paper style! :)
Use some colored paper, pretty practical! <br>
That is a pretty neat music stand, congrats on making, only problem is if you want a music stand that is tall enough for you to read from whilst you're playing trombone or something. Also, just to let you know we created some crafts out of paper too on our profile. Just have a look if you're interested :)
What a great stand!
you rock!
Very crafty! What a great project
Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
