I know these have been all over the place but I really LOVE these book page wreaths and had intended to make one for some time now. I picked up some old Reader’s Digest books at the thrift store and they were old ones, so the pages were already yellowed with age….
The process is a little, let’s say “tedious” and since I wanted to make a small wreath and the pages were old and brittle….and add to that my blonde-ness which does rear it’s ugly head from time to time with my “duh” moments….it was a process to get this accomplished but I persevered!
I cut my pages in half for the outside cones….and in fourths for the inside cones…
I used the top of a magic marker for to keep the circle in the middle uniform so it would be “pretty”…I am OCD like that…it’s a curse…
love the yellowed pages….
I am thinking about just leaning that picture on the mantel instead of it hanging on the wall, but I don’t know….mantels are hard for me and mine is so long it is a challenge! I am constantly tweaking this dang mantel!
I just nestled the wreath into the mantel vignette…..it is working for me for right now…..but that could change at any minute….a curse I tell ya’
Thank you so much for stopping by!
