Old Book Wreaths

Creating old book wreaths came about as I was helping out with a demonstration of Christmas wreaths at my WI meeting back in December 2013. I decided that it would be fun to research different types of wreaths & discovered lots of info on YouTube & via web links to help me create this project.

My target was to make each of them for £5 or less - to cover all the materials used. I rediscovered a love of working with old books & since those first creations I have gone on to make a non-festive one and hopefully many more to come ! I love making them for friends, family, myself & as raffle prizes. The great thing is that they don't need to have Christmas theme. Any theme/book/embellishment can be used & hung all year around !
