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.

Then I wrapped them into cones and used a small piece of clear tape to hold the cones in place. How to make a book page 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. How to make a book page wreathJust 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!Rustic Reclaimed Old Book WreathOnce 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 love this SO much! It's hard being a bibliophile because one one hand, tearing up any book hurts my heart but on the other hand I want everything in my life to be decorated with book pages!! This wreath is definitely worth ripping up an old book and I'm going to make one soon for year-round decor! :)

I LOVE THIS. So much. I need to make one for our new house. I love that it can totally be kept up year-round and that it's neutral. Nice work!!

This is SO beautiful. I love it. I think it would be fun to make with patterned scrapbook paper, too. Perfection!
