All my friends know I spend way too much time looking at crafting blogs and making looonnngg lists of projects that I want to do.
So this week I decided to actually get the stuff to make one of those projects.
Since it's Christmas Season I figured I'd better choose a cheap one from my list and this Book Wreath only cost me $2!
I followed the tutorial found here and it was super easy!
All you need is a glue gun (and glue sticks), a book (I picked one up at the Dollar Store), a wreath form (Dollar Store), and some brown paint.
Rub some brown or grey paint on the outside of the book and let it dry. It's supposed to make it look aged, but I can't really tell the difference. Amy had a great idea of dyeing a few pages in tea and I think that would be really pretty.
