The Gardner Book Page Wreath 3

I couldn't help myself!
I made another book page wreath.
HOWEVER,
this one is different
than the others.
In fact,
they are all different from each other
due to the folds and size of the pages.
These pages are rolled! Not fan shaped . .
rolled.
And putting the pages on this way gives a different look and feel. If you are going to make one of these with your kids I would suggest this one in particular. The pages are much easier to roll than fold into a fan. My three year old helped me . . . for a minute. She rolled two pages and then was off doing her thing.
The rolls provide a unique layered appearance.
One thing to keep in mind is these wreaths can be used all year long! Wahoo! So it is never too late it pull out your supplies and throw one together. They are so versitile and can be used in so many different ways!
This wreath is sitting on top of an old ladder that we painted and distressed quite heavily. It is leaning against the wall in our bedroom and houses pictures and blankets.
I think this technique gives more a uniform classy look instead of the messy shabby look.Alright ladies! Get to it!
