394 pages – rolled book page wreath

A little “spare” crafting time, 1,000 hot glue gun burns and 394 book pages later and you too can have a wreath like this!

Stephanie at Under the Table and Dreaming posted her wreath (and tutorial too!) and I knew it was a project I wanted to tackle. Especially in the same color. Love the black and white pages. I knew it would be perfect “textural” addition to my winter living room. Mine took long enough to complete and isn’t even nearly the size that Stephanie’s is -wow! Mine is much smaller. And honestly….that’s all I had the patience for – HA! 
The night after I finished it, before I had gotten it hung up my little 2 year old found it, threw it and it ended up like this…..

grrrrr! (insert very unhappy Mommy moment) Luckily a little more hot glue and all is well again. 

These would be very pretty done up in other colors too – Like all Red, all white, Oh even all yellow for Spring! 
So – did you craft up anything fun this weekend?
tomorrow: A giveaway! don’t miss out
also – I am cooking up a new project and looking for volunteers to take and share some photos for it. If you are interested in the details, please email me! xoxo


  1. a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!!

  2. You have left me completely speechless!! I love your wreath!!

  3. I HAVE to make this – it’s AWESOME. Wonder if I sprayed it with a sealer if I could hang it on the front door?

    I cried a little at your two year old’s destruction. Glad you were able to fix it. Ouch.

  4. LOVE IT!

    This is what I made this weekend – http://babybunkins.blogspot.com/2011/01/ruche-inspired-bubbly-in-braids-knit.html


  5. Okay, I love this wreath! Perhaps my love of reading has something to do with it, but it’s beautiful! Hope your fingers have recovered from those hot glue gun burns!
