Hello friends, I’m up bright and early this morning and couldn’t wait to start of our week long Creating Christmas event with the Creative Girl!!
This week I’m going with a very Shabby Chic theme, of course using very frugal supplies, some from the Dollar Tree, a lot I already had and then some from Thrift Stores. My work room, me and the dogs are covered in silver and snow white glitter!
I thought the wreath turned out to be very Shabby Chic and very elegant. The best part is that it is super duper easy to create and a very inexpensive holiday craft.
Supplies were purchased at the Dollar Tree and items on hand:
Styrofoam disc – $1.00 for 2
Book Pages – entire book $1.00
Ribbon – $1.00
Glitter Wreath Ornaments – $1.00
Already had on Hand:
Free Vintage Graphics
To start your project cut out the book pages with an exacto for a clean edge, roll into cone shapes and tape. For the outer layer I left the edges plain, but for the inner layer I added a fancy edge with scrapbook scissors. One you have enough cones just start gluing onto the Styrofoam disc. I used my glue gun for this. Decorate the edges with glitter for extra sparkle!
While I let the wreath base dry I popped over to the Graphics Fairy
, my go to place for vintage graphics and found this stunning JOY to the World
graphic for my center medallion. Save the graphic to your computer, I changed the graphics to a round shape and then printed on white card stock, cut this out and glued to the back of the gold and silver glitter wreath ornament. Once this was good a dry and took a roll of vintage cream crepe paper and created a ruffle using tape to adhere the crepe paper.
Finally you have your ruffled medallion done flip over and glue to the center of the wreath. For hanging just glue a ribbon to the back!
And there you have a very elegant and frugal Christmas Book Page Wreath, which I think cost me around $5.00 to create.
Happy Holidays and Happy Crafting My Friends!
