Book Pages Wreath




Hi my name is Leslie, and I am addicted to making wreaths.  This past year I decided wreaths are not just for Christmas, and they do not have to be limited to just doors.  I have been looking for a fabulous mirror to put above my bed, and had not been able to find one I loved.  I bet you know where this is going... I made a wreath instead!  I found this wreath on {Jones Design Company}, which is a blog I am obsessed with!  I am not going to do a full on tutorial, because JDC's tutorial is awesome.  The only part I found confusing was how to twist the paper, and I will show you how I did it.  This is a great project to make during the Olympics.  I have realized I can't just sit and watch, because I get too stressed out.  USA USA USA!!! I really wish I would of lasted longer than a summer in gymnastics, but I just couldn't handle the structure of it.   I didn't enjoy being sent to timeout, but they foam pit always seemed to call my name...  That's when my parent decided I needed soccer.  Alright, project time!  To make this you will need:



12 inch foam wreath, old book, scissors, hot glue gun and hot glue.  I love that this wreath is so cheap, and cute too!  

1.  Rip the paper out of the book {a ton}.


2.  Roll the paper like this:


Then flip the paper inside like this:


3.  Now follow the Jones Design Company {tutorial} on how to finish. :)  


I looove how my wreath turned out.  My bedroom decor is almost done!  I will be sure to show you pictures once I am happy with how it looks.  No promises on how long that will take.  :)  Have a great weekend!  I am headed to Austin with my parents and brother.  I look forward to my first food truck experience!
