This lovely little wreath lesson was offered at my local library and used discarded books for the project. Lovely I think and lots of fun to make with a friend/loved one!

Total Time: a weekend project

Supplies:

  • 1 one book
  • 1 hot glue gun and glue
  • 1 an 8" or 9" round Styrofoam form
  • 1 scissors

Steps:

  1. First pull out pages (4 at a time) and stack.
  2. Cut the four pages together into the biggest circle possible on your paper. I suggest doing them all first, then proceeding, but you can divide it up with others if you are doing them with someone or want to break up the project.
  3. Cut your 4 page circle into a spiral shape.

  5. Leave about a quarter sized center in the middle.
  6. Slowly wind the spiral into a circle starting at the outer edge of the circle, holding it in place.

  8. Glue the center (I did inside and bottom) once you have it wound up into a rosette shape. Hold it until it dries (which is pretty quick.)
  9. Continue with the other circles.

  11. Once you have enough rosettes, wrap some paper around your Styrofoam foam to cover it and glue it in place.
  12. Glue the rosettes on in any design you like. You may make a cascade of blooms with only a few (like the one photo) or fill the wreath completely! Hang it on your door with a metal wreath hanger and enjoy!

I love this and want to make one of my own. You could use sheet music or comic book pages. So many different ways to personalize it. Thanks so much for sharing, this looks like a winning entry to me. :)
