My sisters and I got together over Thanksgiving break and made
Christmas book page wreathes! We had a wonderful time eating, visiting,
and crafting.The inspiration for these wreathes came from the link below.
It takes about 4-5 hours to make one book page wreath,
but I think it is time well spent!
We also ate pesto pizza and wedge salads.
Yummy! Dunmore enjoyed the crust! I got a photo
of the salad, but forgot the pizza. Darn!
For this wreath, we made lots and lots of cones
from the pages of old books. We also did lots of
measuring, stapling, gluing, and laughing! In the
photo above you can see our cones. My sister's
book was quite a bit older than mine, so her pages
are a lot darker. Her cones were also a lot more
fragile. Keep that in mind if you end up trying
to make one of these. Anyway, I love both looks.
Book page wreathes bring a certain character
to your home that other wreathes don't have.
Plus you are up-cycling something old.
In the background you can see the one that I
made several years ago. It still looks great!
AND would you look at how cute Lord Dunmore is!
I sure do love that dog!
Happy crafting dear friends!
