This weekend we have done nothing but trying to start and finish up some household projects. And I must add, we’ve been quite productive! I left my hubby feeling very empowered yesterday after he finished putting together my picture ledges for the living room (pictures and instructions to come). I also finished up the worst project I have ever started…the bane of my existence…my Rosette Bookpage Wreath. This wreath turned out lovely, but I seriously hated every minute of it. It was one of those projects that I started thinking how much I would love it, but then after hours of ripping pages out and putting together hundreds of rosettes…I slowly despised it. The only reason I finished was because I had already put in so much work.
Here’s how I did it:

Love it! I’m working on a book page cone wreath right now….almost done! Your wreath turned out BEAUTIFUL! 🙂
I have thought of making this kind of wreath for my mantle at Christmas. 595 PAGES?!?!? Better start craftin’ it now!
Your wreath looks nice. I really like it in your arrangement and the fluffiness of the roses.
LOL! It is beautiful – an obvious labor of love. I think this is the kind of project I would get some outside help with, at least for the crinkling and rolling!
really cool idea! Now I want to try it! How long did it take you?

Oh this is so pretty! I know what it’s like to work forever on a wreath (I made a moss one that took sooo long) but it looks like it was totally worth it!
Lovely. I pinned you to my pinterest file…I think this would be great to do while catching up on the DVR…lol…that’s a LOT of pages!
Beautiful, Mrs. D!
