had no idea I could love a wreath, like with my whole heart and
soul, but let me tell you, dear reader, it is possible. Wreath love
project, inspired by my good friend and partner in craft crime
Rachael of Lovely.Crafty.Home, is
not difficult, but is also not for the faint of heart. You will
need 3-4 books you are willing to sacrifice. Garage sales and
second hand stores are a great resource for books that are cheap
and free. Or, like me, you may have an exorbitant amount of paper
backs that have already been read and are now professional dust
collectors. The subject matter of the books matters not, but pay
attention to the color and texture of the pages when selecting your
books. A little variety is good, but you don't want to get to
contrast-y. For example: I ended up not using an old text book
because the pages were too smooth, shiny and white-white compared
to my other selections.
also need a LOT of glue sticks and a low temperature glue gun. The
low temp glue gun is a key element. Trust me, your fingers will
thank me later.
that, just scissors, a foam wreath form and plenty of time are all
that are required of you. Head on over to Lovely.Crafty.Home
for the complete tutorial. The process is simple and you will
LOVE the result. I promise.
how amazing would these be on square wreath forms….or on chapel
doors for a wedding…SWOON!
