Beauty and the Budget

Beauty & the Budget: Old Books turned into Wreaths

When my sister-in-law sent me this precious wreath (photo on far left) as a gift (overseas in the mail and it didn’t get crushed!) I was in love!  It’s elegant, simple and the best part about it is that she made it herself with love.  She picked up a dictionary at the dollar store and then dipped the pages in tea to give them an ‘aged’ look and then went to town with the pages.  I think this is the perfect gift/holiday decor since you can basically make it for free and it has such a unique charm about it.  There is a shop in Oxford that has loads of books you can pick up for free and I’m always seeing ‘free book’ piles at libraries, etc.  On the cold winter nights ahead bundle up and get to rolling and gluing!  Enjoy.


P.S. This is the best tutorial I could find online, excuse the eccentric lady and ridiculous music and intro. :)
