book wreath

The holiday rush is finally over, and now I get to be little more crafty.  There are some projects I've been wanting to try out and create them myself.

The first project I tried out for myself was the book wreath. I have seen it on blogs and wanted to put my own spin on it.

I love the ruffle look of the pages.  I used a French Literature book from the 1950's.  The pages are a yummy coffee color. Perfect vintage.

I have it hanging above my stairs heading to my family room.  I am just loving it right now!!

Hi Mo!!

I used a flat MDF or cardboard wreath base ring. I thought it was easier to use than a rounded edged base. Thanks for checking out my project!
