|Enter to win a Vintage Book Page wreath!|
I’ve made a few changes since that first one back in August. Its faster, easier & so much more prettier too.
Tie ribbon to back of wreath. If using a foam wreath, tie ribbon loop & glue to back.
Tear about half of the book pages out from the book. Fold into an “S” shape.
Glue bottom of the “S”. Then glue the bottom side of the edge & press to wreath form.
Continue around the entire back side until full.
Then flip over and start on the front. Work your way around folding and gluing the same way. When applying pages to the sides of wreath, give the bottom of the page a slight fold to make it even with the rest of the pages. You could even cut the pages slightly shorter if that’s easier for you.
When you’ve reached the center, glue the “S” fold page directly to the middle. Continue around the center until full.
Now stand back & look to see if any areas need more fullness. Add pages in all the areas that need more “fluff”. Your done! Depending on book page size, the wreath ends up about 18 -21 inches wide.
I still love making these! Finding books & ripping them apart is so much fun! I always get my books from thrift stores & the older the better. They have a nice yellowing to the pages. There’s so many fun ways to use these. Hang them , a center piece, shape them to a heart for a wedding or Valentines day! ( I’ll share those later. )
Want to win one? Just leave a comment & I’ll put you in the raffle ! I’ll announce the winner Wednesday February 16th. Good luck!!!
