Inside: A full tutorial with pictures showing how to make a Book Page Wreath for less than $5! Perfect affordable, all season wreath and indoor fall decor.
Fall decorating seems so fleeting! The season can be cut-off by a long summer or a fast approaching winter, so we don’t want to spend a bundle on decorating for fall! This simple DIY idea for how to make a book page wreath is ideal because it takes very little time and costs very little money!
Supplies to Make a Simple Book Page Wreath
- a 2-dollar book from the thrift store
- scissors – I love these
- fabric ribbon ( I can’t get enough of this denim ribbon!)
- a cardboard box cut into a wreath shape or a wreath form
- glue gun and glue sticks
- clear tape
How to Assemble your Book Page Wreath
Now get ripping. I tore out about 50 pages from the book and made sure they were ones that had equally spaced texted on either side – basically I didn’t want a big chapter title or large dark font showing up on my wreath.
They won’t all be exactly the same, so the next step is to use your glue gun and position the first layer of page cones along the outer edge of your cardboard wreath form. Just move them around a bit so they appear even. Keep doing this all the way around your wreath. Then rip more pages, turn them into cones and add a second, shorter layer of cones on top of the first layer. This is really so simple guys – your kids could do this!Once you get to the second layer though, you’ll have a bunch of excess that hangs into the middle, so just wrap it around and secure each tail with a dab of hot glue. I did the same thing for the last middle layer too.
I already gave you a sneak peek of this space when we showed off our neutral and metallic holiday decor – but here’s the wreath in all her splendour – hung by a long piece of gorgeous fabric ribbon.The other projects in this little vignette include my planked bookshelf (you should see the before!!) and my DIY rustic mail sorter. This wreath is pretty much my favourite thing. I love that it’s so versatile, textured and EASY to make! You all should totally make a wreath from an old book 🙂
But we’re really here to talk about wreaths. WREATHS! Say that word ten times fast. It’s weird. But Wreaths are not. Our bloggy friends have more to show you 🙂 So hop on!
