Book Page Wreath




Inspired by a wreath I saw in a Pottery Barn catalog, I cut a cardboard circle from a box I had laying around. I then gathered up a few old books and started cutting pages out of them. I rolled the pages and stapled them together in "hands of 5-6, then hot glued them to the cardboard. I'd like to get more books and add to the wreath as well as vary the size of the pages attached.

Thanks for your comment on my paper flowers, but it was you who inspired me!!! I have given mine as book marks to my mum and aunt so thanks for the idea.

I found your blog from doing a search on how to make a rolled paper wreath as I too saw it in Pottery Barn. Thanks for your post, I cannot wait to make one! You won't believe it but I also saw the other craft I really want to experiment with soon on your blog too...paper flowers! I am thinking of making them christmas ornaments or decorations for christmas packages! How fun it was to find inspiration for both on your great blog :)

I too found your blog when doing a search for "make pottery barn paper wreath". :) I went to the local library today and bought a bag full of OLD books for $1. I was trying to explain the wreath to my mom last night, and I said the same thing as previous poster - SHEET music would totally rock for this project. :)

Thanks for the inspiration!

Ladies, if you can't find more than one sheet of sheet music, just photocopy the sheet you have. You won't be able to tell the difference if you use a light weight paper and color copier. Good luck!
