Book Page Wreath-A Follower’s Request
I am sure you have seen many book page wreaths around blog land. I think they look very classy and creative.
I actually posted this when I first started my blog 9 months ago. One of my followers emailed me and asked if I would post this again. Since she can’t see it on my old blog, I told her I would post it. Here you go Mona… Enjoy!
I think it’s is perfect for Fall decorating.
Can you believe this cost about $2 or less to make?
You will need:
book pages-I buy books at the thrift store for $1.00 or less
a cereal box
|This is what I started with. Lots and lots of pages taped into a cone, and a cereal box.|
|I cut one side of my cereal box into a square.
I started adding (with hot glue) my “petals”. Then filled in so it would be even all the way around.
|I filled in all around the first circle of cones, then started with a second row.|
|For the third row, I tore off about 2 inches off each cone to make it short enough to have them fit without overlapping and causing bulk. Almost done.|
