If you haven’t seen these book page wreaths yet, you just may have been hibernating all winter. I love books and reading and I honestly would shudder a little bit each time I’d see this project out in blog land. I thought these wreaths were pretty, but I just couldn’t bring myself to rip up a perfectly good book. I didn’t realize that they even sold books at the Dollar Store. But last time I was there, I picked up one just for this project.
I followed Lindsay’s tutorial over at Living with Lindsay. I still felt guilty ripping up this book, but I guess I’ll get over it. I lost count at how many glue gun sticks I went through. If you do this project, just make sure you have a large supply available! I was surprised at how many pages it took to do this. I used a hard cover book with about 400 pages and I pretty much used all of them.
I wanted a little more contrast so I lightly sprayed a little dark paint on the pages.
Did you notice those roses on the table? I’m so happy it’s Spring here in Northern California. This is a Joseph’s Coat climbing rose. They bloom like crazy and you can neglect them like crazy too. I actually forgot to prune this one last winter and it’s still blooming like gangbusters. Gorgeous!
Linking up to some of these fabulous parties this week.
