book page wreath

My kids head back to school on Thursday. I couldn't think of a more perfect wreath to decorate for back to school time than this book page wreath. These wreaths are all over blog land, but I first saw them here . The book I used was old and already distressed. Some of the pages ripped while I was rolling them, but that adds to the character don't you think?


I love to decorate with old books.


Total for the project: 50 cents

You can see the post from garage sale finds Friday when I found them.

I like some book wreaths better than others. I really like yours. Reminds me of a giant mum.

I love how you filled in the center! This makes it more than a wreath! Makes it an art piece! Thanks for sharing - partying with you at Trendy Treehouse!

This was my first time visiting your blog, and I learned something new. Never have I heard of a book wreath, but now I want to make one for my room at school. You say they are all about the blogging world so I am going to have to search out a tutorial for one. If you have a suggestion of one which might be easier to follow the first time around, I would love hearing from you. You have a great blog. Thanks for sharing with us.

Hugs,

You did an awesome job! I've also seen them around Blogland but I haven't made one yet.

Have a wonderful day!

Gorgeous! I love book page wreaths. I have made 2 and get so many compliments on them. Love how yours turned out and you can tell the pages were old already. How neat.

I love the wreath. I've been wanting to make one of these because I have some old books that are too destroyed to display in any other way.
