Book Page Wreath Re-do

31 Jan

So I saw over on Fireflies and Jellybeans a redo and the book page wreath that seem to be all the rage right now. So I thought that I would put one together for my door. I also got my supplies from the dollar tree, like they did. I love that store by the way. I have been reading about the wonders of the dollar tree, but man, until I experienced it myself I didn’t believe it.

I did mine a bit different. For starters I use my glue gun instead of the glue they used.

and since the glue was so hot, I used a thrifted spoon to help stick it down. And I asked Dan to take pictures of the process so I just unloaded them from my camera and guess how many he took…. 55. Just be happy that I’m not posting all of them.

Here is my finished project!

Here is a close up of one of the wreaths.

I’m thinking about making some fabric flowers to embellish the wreaths a bit. Also guess what book I used to cover the foam wreaths with! My strategic management book from my undergraduate degree. Take that useless undergrad and that horrible book they wouldn’t take back because the silly teacher bought the newest edition every semester!

    What a wonderful way to put the bitterness of undergraduate textbook politics to good use.
