Fabulous Book Paper Wreath

I love this wreath!  Gina over at Shabby Creek Cottage gave me the idea to turn her Book Page Garland into a wreath.  It was so much fun to make!  Be sure to check out Gina’s blog; everything she makes is super-cute, plus she’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to make the paper “flowers/ruffles/goodness.”

I started with a wreath form that I picked up at Michael’s for $4.  Because I am hanging the wreath on a mirror, I didn’t want the staples to scratch.

Then I made a whole bunch of book page “flowers”

I hot-glued 2 pieces at a time per glob (technical term)  of hot glue.

I am thrilled with the results! I hung it from a piece of burnt-orange satin ribbon.  I used a 3M Command Strip hook to attach it to my mirror. 

Disclaimer:  It is really difficult to take a decent picture when a giant mirror is the backdrop!

The mantle reveal is almost here.  Be sure to check back!
