Here’s a repost from Christiana’s blog on the Wreath she made out of book pages re-posted with her permission :-). Man is she ever creative:
It was inspired by one of the design blogs I like – thenester. In her blog she said it took her an hour. Mine took a lot longer than an hour!! But I love how it turned out! I used a hot glue gun for the whole thing – making the cones and then gluing them on. I think gluing the pages into cones with craft glue might have worked better and then attaching them with hot glue to the wreath ring.
Things I would do differently –
1. Not buy the green foam ring but those straw ones like she does on the nester.
2. If I did buy the green foam ring I’d wrap it with book pages to start with. I added more book pages than I probably needed too just to hide the green.
3. Plan for hanging it before I glued the cones on. I really struggled hanging it because I was trying to put wire in the back without smashing the pages in the front.
I love using books for everything from cards to big decorations like this! It’s is virtually free!
