You Made a Wreath Out of What?! A Linky Party

wreath ideas

This is it, the mother of all wreath link up parties.  I can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with.  Since I’m in the mood to pretty up my house for my sister’s Book Release Party {BRP for short but that’s sounds dangerously close to burp} I went with the not too risky but always a crowd pleaser….the book page wreath.

This wreath is massive at about 36 inches wide.  He sits right at the wall by our front door.  I’m not going to do a tutorial since there are fifty eleven already on the internet.  Here’s a bunch of book page wreath ideas and here’s a tutorial.

I just used two different size book pages and rolled mine into cones.  No perfection here.  Then I hot glued them to a plastic covered straw wreath form.  It took a little less than an hour.

I liked it so much I made a second wreath.  This one is just a bunch of folded leaf shapes cut from a dictionary and glued around.

I’m not the first to make one and I won’t be the last.

Oh and I wanted to quickly announce the winner’s of a copy of Grace for the Good Girl::

I’ll email each of you in a bit with instructions….now let the games begin….

Thank you for the great party and your wonderful blog!

  3. Ugghh. … I submitted my sweater wreath, #299, but the picture doesn’t show the whole wreath. Is it possible for you to delete that entry and let me resubmit with a better picture? Pretty please. I’m definitely a newbie :(

    Thanks for the inspiring party!

  4. What wonderful wreaths! We’ve been out of town, so I was catching up. I know you’re having tun getting ready for the book party! And beautiful work by Emily, as usual. I love her design style. AND… I was checking all that out, trying to catch up, when I saw the sweet shout out you gave us. Thanks girl! We had so much fun making it! ;)

  5. Beautiful, beautiful wreaths! I’m too late to link up my burlap/starfish and brooch wreaths. :( But love seeing inspiration for my next wreath! Hope to catch you next time! Great party!

  6. WOW! What wonderful wreaths….I am so inspired. I wanted to make a very Aussie-looking wreath perhaps with eucalypt leaves and gumnuts so I have so much inspiration!! Thank you for this wonderful site which I have only just discovered x

  8. Nester – thanks for this linky party! All the ladies in our Sunday School class had a Craft Day just to make some of these awesome wreaths! We loved it! I posted about it here, if you want to see our day of fun! http://brantashleywilliams.blogspot.com/2011/09/craft-day.html

  9. I loved this so much! I hope you do the party again soon! I made a toy wreath and tried to have it submitted in time, and missed the cutoff by a few hours! Doh! Oh well, you inspired me to create something and finish it, a huge feat. :)

  10. I am lost…but i want to see all these great wreaths. Can you hook me up?

  11. I am amazed. What a wonderful job you have done! I bookmarked it.

    Praise for you.

  12. The wreath links are fab! Thank you.

    Something you might want to caution your readers though. Some of the sites feature Christmas decorations. The part that worries me in particular are the decorations on chandeliers (or any light fixture). Someone living near me in NJ had their big beautiful house burn to the ground because of their decorated chandelier. It just isn’t worth the risk! :-)

  13. Love It!!

  14. Hey, I really love the wreath that you made and I would love to make one of my own ,but there aren’t any tutorials for a wreath that looks like yours. Would you be up to posting your tutorial?

  15. I hope you have this party again! I have a wreath to share!

    • I was told about your website by a finerd of mine, and after seeing this tutorial, decided to try my hand at it. I did a slight variation, and am thrilled with how it turned out! I hung it on my door today, and my neighbor came over this afternoon and was commenting on how she liked it and asking how it was done. Thanks so much for sharing!

  16. I hope you have this party again too! I have some cool wreaths to share! Thanks for the inspiration.

  17. Love these! Thanks for sharing them!!

  18. Wow! That is a lot of cool wreaths!

  23. Love the book wreath, so cool! But I literally laughed out loud when I read your comment that there were “already fifty eleven” tutorials online…I say “fifty-eleven” all the time {pretty sure it came from my Mother-in-Law} and had never heard anyone else use it! Just had to share that with you! :)

  25. How fun! I love all the ideas. I need to get my burlap wreath done and up. I made a wreath last spring out of coffee filters rolled so they look like flowers. Added a bit of watercolor for pink flowers on it and it’s been up ever since. Very pretty. I always love everything you share here!
