I put up a hook on my front door a few months ago to hang a Christmas wreath. The Christmas wreath has been packed away for a while and my front door was looking a little empty...so I decided to make a new wreath to pretty up my front door. I have been seeing styrofoam balls or wreaths covered with "roses" made with recycled book pages lately and I love the look. I had a few books in my get-rid-of pile so I decided to give it a try. The idea of ripping apart a book made me cringe a little, but I got over it after making my first few roses. :)
Here is a close-up.
I am not going to write a tutorial because I saw a great one you can use if you are interested in making your own. The blog is Under the table and Dreaming. I did not make mine the same was she did, but the results are pretty much the same.
I don't know if I will leave it on my front door or not. I am a little worried about it getting wet. I really like the end result though!
