I was definitely feeling inspired after yesterday’s post on 10 Ways to Decorate With Book Pages, so I decided to jump right into making my very own book page wreath and I am crazy about how it turned out!
If you all remember, a few weeks ago I revealed my first fall wreath of the year and I definitely liked it but I was pretty honest about my feelings toward it. SO, I decided to challenge myself to make a new fall wreath that I absolutely love. And you know what? I absolutely LOVE my new book page wreath, a big L-O-V-E! I stuck with my challenge of only using things I had around my house or things from the dollar store, but this time I didn’t even spend a penny because this wreath cost me $.00! Bonus.
I started out by cutting a circle out of an old box we had laying around and then covered it with book pages to create the base for the wreath.
Then, I made these accordion style flowers out of book pages (each flower has 3 small accordion pieces) and layered the flowers until they covered the entire wreath. I love how layering the flowers gave it some depth.
After the wreath was complete I accessorized it with some old buttons that my grandma recently gave me.
After trying out the wreath in several rooms in the house, I finally found it a home on a shelf in our family room! I’ve been all about big pops of bold color lately so I added some ribbon to top it off. The colors might not be for everyone but it works in this space.
After two wreaths in the past few weeks I think I am wreathed out for a while… quit while you’re ahead right? :)
