When I think of fall I think of going back to school, new clothes, backpacks, apples, and books. This thought inspired me to make a wreath for my home from pages of an old book. I started with a foam wreath form I had laying around my house. I covered the form with some strips of burlap fabric I had left over from my dining room valence.
I then tied a bow using some strips of straw to add that fall feeling to the wreath.
Then I went to work ripping out pages of the book and rolling them into tubes. I glued three together and tied jute around the center.
Since most fall wreaths have leaves on them, I went to work tracing and cutting some leaves out of some additional book pages.
After everything was prepped, it was time to assemble. I hot glued the paper rolls directly on the wreath form randomly until I achieved the look I wanted. After the rolls were glued on, I added some straw to the blank spots. Then I took the leaves I cut out and glued them randomly on the wreath. I also made a small fall banner out of the book pages to add a little more whimsy to the wreath. Here is how the final product turned out.
I really like how it turned out, it adds something fun and unexpected to my space. Best part, everything I used I had lying around the house, so this fun project was free!
