Make your own beautiful paper wreath using pages from a vintage book. It makes a beautiful home decor piece that you can display all year long.
I actually started this paper wreath in October of last year. Originally I wanted it to look like this
Vacuuming in High Heels
But then October came and went and I hadn’t finished the wreath. So then I moved on to this version.
But when it was all finished I liked it too much for it to be a seasonal wreath. I liked it naked, so I left it that way.
It started with an old book that I got from my Grandma’s house. The copyright date on the inside was 1941. I knew right away I wanted it for crafting. Besides who wants to read a 559 pg old book on the history of Europe? Not me! (Don’t worry, I checked to see if it was worth anything first)
I used a 2 3/8 Scallop Circle Punch and was able to cut 6 shapes out of each page. Punch what will feel like a million circle (but you won’t need quite that many).
The easiest way to make all of the paper scrunchies is with a pencil with a good eraser.
Wrap the paper around the eraser side of the pencil with the eraser in the center of the circle.
Put a dot of hot glue on the piece of paper and glue it onto the wreath form. I used a 15 inch Styrofoam wreath form.
Isn’t it pretty when it is naked?
I played around with a couple different options of ribbon as well but decided I liked how it looked on top of my entertainment center. So no ribbon for hanging was necessary. Now my wreath is good for all seasons!
