BOOK WREATH

I know, I know, I know….these are totally over done in the blogesphere but I have been wanting to make these for my black cabinet in my kitchen since I saw them. Remember when I told you about the lady down the street throwing all of the good, donatable stuff in the trash? You can read that here. Well, I couldn’t STAND for all of those old books to go to waste. It broke my heart. Why? I don’t know. I guess because of the history behind them, and the beauty of the well worn pages. I just LOVE the analogy. EVERY TIME I save something from the dump, it reminds me of how Jesus saved me and  restored me making me useful and beautiful again.  I only used one half of a book and I have FIVE wreaths so far. Two are staying on my cabinets and the rest will go to consigning Interiors.

These books would never get read in my house, but I am sure going to enjoy looking at them in a new way. Have any of you made one yet? I know there are a gajillion tutorials out there and they are super easy to do!

  5. See? I sure know how to pick a MMS stylist, doncha think?!? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love your twist on this! I like how you spiraled the cones as opposed to attaching them straight on. VERY pretty!

    Oh no! Ever After, actually the whole Williamsburg series by Elizabeth Thane, is really good. First editions are also selling for $30 on Amazon.

    Your wreaths are really pretty, I'm just sad to see such a good book on the supply list.

    Have a great day!

  19. Too cute! I love them, even if they are all over the place, they are so fun, and even better because you made them yourself.

  21. It looks great! I want one too, most everything has been blogged about, but everyone puts their own spin on things! Love your spin (or twist)!
