The Elusive Flame

I know everyone is tired of seeing things made out of books - especially wreaths - but I have just discovered them.

I turned this book:



into this wreath:




I don't have step by step photos but it was super easy to make. First I painted the edges of the book with a little black and brown paint. Then I rolled and folded the pages of the book and hot glue them to a dollar store foam wreath. I then attached a piece of ribbon to the back with hot glue to hang it.

You can go to this tutorial at Living with Lindsey for a similar wreath and detailed instructions!

I'm adding this to all of my favorite linky parties - click on the buttons on the right to go and check them out!

Yes I have seen lots of wreaths made from books and other crafts from books, but that is still amazing. I will never look at a book the same again.
