Christina, from The Frugal Homemaker, posted about her Burlap Book Page Wreath last October during her 31 days of Pinterest Pinned to Done and I pinned it hoping I’d get to do one.
Then I saw Talitha, from Love, Pomegranate House, do a Paper Dahlia Wreath last week and it was gorgeous! I pinned this one, too.
My Book Page Wreath is sort of a combination of the two. Here’s a quick run-down on how you can do your own.
1. Cut a circle out of a cardboard, I used a Pepsi case.
2. Tear pages out of an old book, I used an old dictionary I found at the thrift store. Roll them into tubes and use a hot glue gun to secure.
3. Glue the tubes onto your circle, starting at the outside edge.
4. Glue the next row between the tubes on the row before, continuing until you are as full as you like.
5. Use ribbon you have on hand, or I cut a piece of linen from a scrap I messed up, and glued it into a ribbon.
6. Hot glue the ribbon to the back of the cardboard. (I should have painted the back! Oh well, no one will see it)
I love my wreath! Simple, but it did take a bit of time. And I love it hanging in the office where I see it the most.
Yes, I know, it’s not springy colours, but I love the rustic feel of the mantel.
What do you have on your mantel right now?
