I am fairly obsessed with using book pages as a craft supply. I love reading and maybe thats why. Or maybe it's because the pages have such character and cost next to nothing to use!
I grabbed an old book, scissors, and glue stick. I liked using the glue stick because my leaves didn't dry too fast. It was easy to reposition them as I went to make the wreath look its best. I used the back cover and cut out a circle to use as the base of my wreath. It doesn't have to be perfect because you will be covering it with the book page leaves.
Cut out some leaves from your pages. It depends on how big your wreath is, but I used about 40 leaves. Again, no measuring or templates. The beauty is in the uniqueness of each leaf.
Then, use your glue stick and layer the leaves around. Like I said, I had to move things around as I went to get the wreath to look uniform and even on all edges. I even glued some on to the back to fill it in.
It is still not an absolute perfect circle, but I like it that way. It dressed up my pretty boxwood wreath in our family room.
I love simple little projects like this. Sometimes just a few minutes and everyday supplies can bring character and your personality to your space.
