Book Page Wreath

What do you think of my newest decoration?
And, the best part...
It cost me about $2 to make.

Want to make one?
Materials:
1-Wreath Form (got mine from the dollar store...$1)
1-Book (from the thrift store...$0.75)
Note: I used only about 1/3 of this book with 700 pgs.
Glue gun
Brown ribbon or material (you can use whatever you have from your scraps, like me)
Color Cardstock (found in my scrap paper)
Brad (again, found in my scraps)
Picture frame (one that you already have on hand or make a trip to your local thrift store)
Note:You don't need the back or the glass.


First things first, start ripping pages out of your book.
Then, make a circle pattern.

Use the circle pattern to cut circles out of your pages.

Here's what your circles should look like.

Then take your ribbon, and using your glue gun, wrap it around the wreath form.

Next, pinch the bottom of your circle and attach it to the wreath using your glue gun.
Note: I used the tip of my scissors to hold it in place, avoiding glue gun burns.

Keep attaching your circles until you have covered your wreath.

When I was done covering my wreath, I also took a lighter and singed the edges of the paper.
For the "M", I drew the letter out on my cardstock and cut it out.
Then I cut out a flower, and attached it to the "M" using a brad.
Next, hot glue the letter to the wreath and hang it in your frame!
