So January comes along, and still, NOTHIN'! The forecast for this week was snow, lots of it! Yay! But do you know what we got? A skiff of snow, and lots and LOTS of rain. Rain?!? In January??? It's an abomination I tell you!
Whew! Okay. I'm done with my rant. I've decided, instead, to give Mother Nature a little encouragement.
So I finally got around to making my very own book page wreath. I have a never ending supply of books sent my way by my awesome aunt, so I thought I would put them to work. This wreath took about 100 pages. And I finally put the hot glue gun Santa brought me to work. My last gun was low temp. This one is high temp. Let's just say my finger tips are a little sore as I type this!
The snowflakes were ornaments that I bought a couple years ago on After Christmas Clearance.
I didn't used to be into gold, but it is kind of growing on me.
I used a Dollar Tree wreath frame, wrapped it in book pages, then hot glued 3 rows of book page cones.
I hung the wreath with blue and gold ribbon to pull it all together.
Don't mind the construction mess out in the sun room. My hubby and father-in-law just finished redoing all of the windows out there. Next up: Basement Apartment! Yay!
I'm thinking I may move it to the other side of the door, so that it is facing outside.
That way Mother Nature will see how beautiful snow could be! ;)
