Inspired Home - Book Page Wreath

I have wanted to make a book page wreath for a long time. I have seen them on several blogs I read as well as Pinterest. One of the many creative goals I have this year is to attempt actually making the things I am inspired by on Pinterest or around the web. So I decided enough is enough! I AM making a wreath. Can I tell was really easy and didn't take too much time at all.

I found this easy to follow tutorial on YouTube by Jenna DeAngeles. It did take some time figuring out the right way to roll the paper cones. But, once I figured it out I became a one woman cone factory. IT would be a fun little task to do while watching TV or instead of folding laundry. :)

I followed Jenna's directions pretty much for the entire process. After attaching all the cones, I auditioned lots of items I had floating around my house for the center. You really can use all kinds of various things - ornaments (too Christmas-y for all year around for me), burlap, fabric flowers, moss, potpourri, etc. I used my stash of wooden knobs and small flowers from an earth toned package of potpourri. I LOVE how it looks!! It really makes a beautiful, strong statement.

The cones are hot glued to a square 12x12 piece of Styrofoam. There are two office binder clips on the top of the Styrofoam to hold the twine for hanging. I have it hanging on the back of my front door right now. I had so much fun making this book page wreath, I may end up with one in every room. :)

Have you made a book page wreath? No? Hurry up! Go! :)
Happy Friday!


  1. Happy Friday Jen.. In my place though, it's already a Sunday haha

    This is what I saw on Instagram! Am I right? I guess this is also your first craft for the year. I love what you made and I believe we can also use different papers for the wreath. Perhaps, it can also be altered depending on the occasion.

    Have a great week ahead Jen.

  2. Hi Jen,

    This is just beautiful. I love how you added the wooden balls and what looks like a few nutshells to the center. Very nice! I can go to the local library used bookstore and pick up books for free. Maybe I'll look for a mini book and make a mini wreath.

    thanks for the inspiration!


    PS. I also like your post today. What a beautiful girl!
