Book Page Pom Wreath


Now that we've got Halloween over with, it's time to get Christmas decorating, am I right?  I've got a stash of books just begging to become awesome.  So I obliged.  Just in case you, too, have a sad little book hanging around that wants to become a wreath, here's how:


You will need eleventy billion glue sticks. That's not an exact number, just a ballpark figure.




 




Updated Tip:  I put 2 or 3 sheets together to cut them and then separated them back out for the next step.











When I was done filling in gaps, I smacked a bow on that puppy and called it done!  

  
Here it is hanging on a straight pin I stuck in the wall (um, don't tell my husband). 


And here it is on my door. :)

Come see where I party HERE!

I love this wreath! Thanks for the tutorial.

Jessica @ Sunny Tuesday said...

Thanks! It took about a week's worth of naptimes, split with housework. I don't know what that translates into in normal-people hours. :)

I love it. I already made a book page wreath the more traditional way, but I like the pom style of this. It makes it look like baby's breath or snow.
