I made a wreath from an old book - an 1895 copy of The Best of Browning. It was on my shelf and falling apart. I felt a little guilty, but when I looked up the value, it's only worth about five dollars. And I definitely got five dollars worth of love out of this book! I plan to make a bookmark from the spine also.
I found myself really getting sidetracked by the poetry.
Won't you give this challenge a try?
Surprise yourself! I know you have a crafty trick up your sleeve involving alphas in any way!
Poor old broken book, meet hot glue gun!
Rolling from bottom right corner.
Sealing with glue on opposite corner.
Dixie plate cardboard template, cover with book pages.
Glue layers of rolled paper, starting with a hole in center of base layer.
Use a 12-3-6-9 O'Clock pattern for good placement.
Make one layer or continue for a fuller look.
I used 3 layers.
Add anything to center...Christmas ornaments, your name, a flower, a banner.
Hot glue ribbon or hanger to back.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed and creative day!
