Book page wreath


Do you guys remember the bird book that I made a few months ago?


When I cut the circle out 


I was left with a ton of book page circles that looked like this.
I kept them because I knew I could use them one day.


Well, that day came, and I made this book page wreath with them.


I started out with a foam wreath and my circles and a lot of hot glue


I folded each of the circles into a triangle like this


Then I glued them on around the wreath


And this is the finished project.


I think it turned out pretty cute.

That is really cute!! My husband is always teasing me because I keep little scraps "because I'm going to use them some day". Most of the time I do!! Sometimes I end up forgetting about it tho..

Something like this would be perfect for my wreath display that I'm trying out this year. Thanks for sharing!

if you crinkle the edges and rub distressing ink, it makes a cool dark/aged edge too!

What a lovey combination: a wreath (one of my favourite things) made from book pages (another of my favourite things).
