My blog is back up and I am able to share my 4th of July Book Page Wreath. I am beyond thrilled to be with you here today, and cross my fingers that this will be the case from now on.
Hubby and I have been keeping busy, organizing our home, going to the thrift store to drop things off, and watching 4 of our oldest grandkiddos. We have gone swimming, to the movies, visited Ethel M Chocolate Factory, rode the zipline, watched airplanes land and takeoff at the airport, eaten more candy and pizza than I could ever imagine, went to the water park, got free doughnuts from Krispy Kreme (Did you know it was National Doughnut Day?) And now we are heading out to the pool again. Whew! It has been a blast! And well-worth all the candy and pizza (insert huge smile)
NOW, for this year’s 4th of July Book Page Wreath…
Isn’t she lovely?? You KNOW how much I like using vintage book pages for crafts. This was no exception.
I started much like I did with my Spring Wreath. I covered my straw form with book pages, keeping them as smooth as possible.
After that, I tore strips of navy blue and red polka dot fabric. I made the blue 2 inches wide and the red 3 inches wide. I wrapped the wreath so there was space in-between the fabric and the book pages.
Then it was time to make my medallion, with yes, more book pages. Using hot glue and folding my pages in a round fan shape, I had my own medallion. I made a smaller medallion to layer on top. THEN, using my 1949 dictionary, I found the definition of the United States.
I like using this older dictionary for the worn color and vintage look.
Now anyone visiting our home will be greeted with my 4th of July Book Page Wreath.
I made another July 4th Wreath last year. I also used red and navy blue polka dot fabric. You can view that wreath here.
I just love me some red, white and blue, don’t you?? I have even MORE red white and blue ideas here.
Thanks for joining me here today.
Make it a great day!
