~Treasure of the Heart~

 

I have fallen in love with the beautiful crafts created right from the pages of a book! Have you seen the wreaths, butterflies and other goodies? All you need to do is hop to Pinterest for inspiration or stop by Jennifer Rizzo’s daughter’s room or check out the gorgeous starburst wreath at City Farmhouse. Aren’t they beautiful? and cool?

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I decided to make my version in the form of a heart wreath.

Valentine’s Day Heart Wreath

I scoured my bookshelves for a book that I wouldn’t mind ripping pages from, plus I wanted it to have some sort of significance to the project.  Last year, I purchased a few cheap books to fill my bookcases. Luckily, I had an old romance novel that I had picked up for $.25! Plus, the title was “Treasure of the Heart.” How appropriate!

I’ve included my FIRST EVER video tutorial on how to make the Valentines’ wreath!

I’ve also included the step-by-step directions below.

I rolled each page to form a sort of “cone.”

Then I began attaching the rolled pages to a heart-shaped cardboard cut-out with hot glue.

I started with the outside of the form and then simply layered each row on top of each other.

You can decide the direction you prefer your pages to aim, whether that be up, down or to the side. As you can see, most of my pages aim upwards, but begin to angle down as they get toward the bottom of the heart.

I attached a red and white ribbon to the back of the wreath as a hanger.

I hung my new Valentine’s Day Heart Wreath on my corner cabinet.

I love the simple yet elegant look of this wreath. The book I chose to use was an older book, so the pages had started to yellow. I like the “antique” look that the pages give the wreath. This was a fun and easy project and I love it!

  5. Your heart wreath looks great! Love the texture and character of the aged book pages. I’ve never done a book page art project, but your pretty heart is definitely inspiration to take a shot at doing something similar :-)

  6. I love the idea of using book pages for crafts. This looks lovely!
