Old Book Wreath
I love Wreaths,I don't know what it is about them but I just love them, I even have a whole board on Pinterest dedicated to them. My favorite so far are the yarn and felt wreaths, like this one by Jo-Anna from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs
isn't it just lovely
And how about this. I absolutely adore it and will make it some day, this one is by Sandi Terese from I'm a Yarner
The one I recently made isn't as fancy as the two above but I love it. I came across the tutorial somewhere in the blog land and it's simple to make...
all you need is
- a cardboard circle (mine was 9")
- old book
- glue gun
Take the pages out of the book and glue them to the circle as far apart or as tight together as you want them, attach your ribbon at the back and done.
You can fancy it up by burning the edges of the book up before you glue them on or you can distress the edges a bit more using brown ink and sponge.
