Creating Christmas Chic JOY to the World Book Page Christmas Wreath Dollar Tree Crafts

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:
Crepe paper
Glitter
Glue
Glue Gun
Free Vintage Graphics
Cardstock
Tape

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!

  3. This is just too pretty! Such a fun idea and you added just enough little details to bring it all together. I would LOVE to see this done with sheet music too! I think it would be a very pretty look for the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I may just be inspired to futz around with my supplies and see what version of this I can come up with using some of what I have on hand!
