Book Wreath & Snowflakes

I hope you had a wonderful and Merry Christmas. I was blessed with both my grown children here with me. It makes me the happiest and most complete to have them together.

I made a wreath out of a Styrofoam ring and mod podged it using an old book. I then added roses and leaves using the same book and some old sheet music.  It turned out like this (below).


I felt that overall it was cool but looked a bit plain. So I accidentally found a snowflake tutorial online from Quill Cottage, so I printed it out and decided to make some. Mine turned out like this (below). 


I got a new camera for Christmas, the first snowflake was taken with it so I will be able to show better pictures in future posts. Anyway, I enjoyed making these four snowflakes and added one to the center of the wreath (below).

A good winter look since I live in the Midwest. Terry

  6. Terry, I really like your idea of wrapping the wreath form with book pages. I hadn't seen that done before. :-) The little rosettes are adorable and I think the wreath was sweet even before adding that pretty snowflake. Thanks for the inspiration! ~ Sue
