Getting my Craft on!

The sheet music and book page wreaths have been all over blogland for a long time.  I loved them instantly.

While watching college football, I got my cordless glue gun out and went to town.  The thing I love most is that they can be used year round!

I used old books, painted the outside of the pages with brown paint and began the labor intesive part of rolling/gluing/rolling...and so on.





This one I chalked, once it was done.

I seem to be a fan of the wreaths with something in the center.  To me it looks complete.
I plan to incorporate sheet music in my decorating tomorrow night when we host our monthly neighbor game night.  I just need to keep this pesky sinus infection at bay - ugh!

Have a great weekend!

Hello, I was drawn to your blog because I have a small space at a market called Vintage Polish. I saw this post about an old book wreath first. We are KINDRED SPIRITS!!!

Here is my book wreath:

I always admire people who can create such decorations and that atmosphere of a holiday time. These paper flowers look like a real plant and looks very individual and unique. I know that such colorful items could be purchased at digitalculturesandtranslation.com but this one is more personal and interesting.
