How to Make...

A very cheap, very simple book wreath! I love home decorations, but we live overseas right now and I can't accumulate any possessions that we can't leave behind when we move back to the US in a few years. So the book wreath is the answer to my decorating dilemma right now. I purchased a book for £1 and tore the pages out. My book had enough pages to make three wreaths, so I could hang a few in my house or share them with friends. This one is a fairy tale book, but I've also seen them made from sheet music too. Then I cut out a wreath frame from an old cardboard box and hot glued cones made from the paper. My son has beat this one up a little, but otherwise it looks great (and it is very easy to fix when I have the time)! This is also perfect for rental houses such as ours. We are technically not supposed to use nails in the walls. This wreath is so light that I was able to hang it with a thumb tack. Voila! A great decoration that fills a lot of wall space!

I love this SO MUCH!!!! I'm thinking it's the perfect decoration for a playroom, over a bookshelf, in a reading nook.....I want to make a thousand of them. Well, really, I just want someone else to make a thousand of them for me. Any takers.....?
