Book Paper Wreath

So a few days ago I shared my crazy paper wreath that I was a bit nervous about how it was going to turn out... well, here's the finished project and I ended up liking it enough to actually hang it on my wall!

I ended up spraying a bit of Tattered Angels Mist onto it to add a bit of color. I used the colors Coffee Shop and a bit of Lime Green although what green I did spray I tried to cover most of it with the coffee shop because it was a bit too much. 



One of the best parts of this project to me is that I used stuff I already had sitting around. The wreath I had purchased a couple of years ago intending to do another wreath project I never got around too. I used a couple of books I had just sitting in storage I didn't think I would ever read again, and then of course the hot glue and mists I already had as well! I LOVE that!! The other best part was that my 4 year old daughter and I worked on this together. She did a large majority of the rolling up of the book paper. I think she was excited to see it hanging up as well. 

It really is fun and rewarding to see my own work grace the walls of our home. What a great and inexpensive way to make it ours! You will definitely be seeing more home decor projects from me soon!

Hi valechula! The pink woodgrain is the B side from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses Woodland Paper.

LOVE this!!! Sooo cute and cool. Thanks for sharing the link. I might just have to steal this idea. Looks fabulous. Oh, when did you get a piano? Did you learn to play without me knowing? (=

Just got the piano a month or two ago. It used to be at my parents and they were looking to give it away and we volunteered to take it off their hands!
