Square Wreath

Book wreath 202 

Two very dear friends of mine, Mrs. Staggs and Karla are having a Using The Good Stuff party, so I had to join in!! I have to say this book wreath is the most favorite thing I have ever made. I adore it!! I just cut cardboard into the shape I wanted, added torn pages from a very old children's book. Embellished it with pale pink roses off an old hat, a birds nest and some ribbon. Simple and stunning. Thank you ladies for the push, I love you both xoxox

PS I should say I was orginaly inspired by House Revival's wreath!!

Good stuff

Really gorgeous! Isn't using the good stuff fun? I just love how the pages look in the rectangle shape. And what can be better than those flowers. Such a clever idea.

Judy B.

What a great idea! I love it! And I love the rose corsage embellishment! So pretty!

Kris Pare

I love the mixture of the vintage paper with the ribbons, roses, and robin eggs! Pretty!

Lena

Your wreath is lovely Clarice. I love the colors, and the way that using the vintage elements lends so much character and texture. You simply can't duplicate that with newer things.

Thanks for participating Clarice. I'm so happy that the result was such a happy one.

I love the patina on old book pages. Your wreath is really lovely.

Oh, that is so cute, Clarice! I love that it is square and not round or oval ~ they are so predictable! Yours is so refreshingly different! Of course I love anything that has to do with birds, birdhouses, birdfeeders or birdnests! Makes your wreath sing spring!
Blessings!

Wow! This is just gorgeous! I like it better than mine! The details like the way you belted the hanger, and the robin's nest -- it is just exquisite.
