Well, I did it…I jumped on the book page wreath bandwagon…and I’m SOOO glad I did! I have been seeing these all over blog land and really like them but when I finished mine I was THRILLED. I LOVE the result.
I do have to tell you My Better’s Half’s part in all of this. He was running to town and I asked if he would stop at the thrift store and pick me up an old book to use for this project. I told him the size I wanted and that I wanted it to have brownish pages and sent him on his way.
He came home very proud of himself…
Gotta love him. I did throw the book in the garbage however, it was too trashy to hang it’s pages on my wall.
So, after getting a new book, this is what I did:
First I ripped the pages out of the book ( that’s how I saw how nasty the other book was).
Next, I very loosely rolled the pages and then hot glued one end. I then glued that end to my cardboard circle.
Then I began layering them on the cardboard ring and filling in any empty spaces.
On the last layer, I rolled the paper and then gently folded it in the center. When I hot glued these, I glued the center of them instead of on either end.
Finally, I rolled some pages the short way and tied three together. Then I just randomly glued these all over the wreath.
I added a bow from my 120 spools of ribbon deal that I picked up. It added color and I can change it up with every season.
