DIY- Book Page Wreath Tutorial

Book Page Wreaths are so pretty.  I love them.  I wanted to have an awesome wreath this year and knew a book page wreath would go perfectly with our lighted book page garland

I decided to use the wreath form from my Give Thanks Wreath, and pages from the good ol' Webster's Dictionary I had.  Seriously, if you want an endless supply of book pages, buy yourself an old dictionary.  They're awesome for these crafty projects.  And you can never, I mean NEVER, have too much hot glue.

Okay so I started by ripping out tons of pages from the Webster's.  Then I folded each page a few times, and hot glued them onto the wreath form.




And I basically hot glued the crap out of those book pages and put them everywhere they could go until the wreath was full and beautiful looking.




This wreath definitely took more time than I would have liked it too (felt like I wanted to give up more than a couple of times and thought I was going to run out of hot glue (the horror!)), but I really like the results and think I will keep it up even after Christmas.

Very cute! Did you end up using the whole book? Looks like it was indeed a lot of work....
