I don't remember where I first saw a book wreath online (Pinterest? Blogs?), but I knew I wanted to try making one as soon as I saw it. I know the first blog tutorial I read was at Living with Lindsay. So, this week, I finally gave it a go. It was very easy to do and ridiculously cheap. I think I paid maybe $5 total for this (just the cost of the wreath form, which I bet you could find a lot cheaper than that).
The only thing that I might do differently next time is to be sure that I have a book with enough pages to make a complete wreath. I started with a book that was too small, then had to use an additional book to finish it out. That's why the outer "leaves" are brighter white than the middle. I think it turned out really well, though, and the two-tonedness (is that a word?) actually looks kind of cool.
