4th of July Wreath

Happy 4th of July Wreath

I am crazy about wreaths!  I have no less than 6 wreaths displayed in my home and garden.  I enjoy wreaths of all kinds but some of my favorites are made from book pages.  I currently have 2 different book page wreaths and today I want to show you a 3rd that I created for a friend.  This wreath also has touches of red, white and blue to make it festive for the 4th of July.

Book Page Wreath

Start with different sizes and widths of book pages.  Then you will accordion fold the pages.  Next, use thread or thin string to tie off the center of the folded strip.  I used matching thread to make mine.  Gently open and glue the opposite edges together with a glue stick.

This simple wreath is easy to create with just a little time and glue.  Hope you enjoy crafting your own book page wreath.  Have a Happy 4th of July!
