I love easy DIY projects that can be completed in a short amount of time, like my coffee filter wreath or super popular rag (scrap fabric) wreath! If I have to take a break to go pick up kids or run an errand, I have the hardest time getting back into the project and completing it! So this wreath was perfect for my distracted adult brain!

My daughter and I had a girls weekend and enjoyed Afternoon Tea in Milwaukee as well as hitting up one of our local thrift stores for fun and we bought a copy of The Notebook {literally the only book I read in high school that I actually “read” – ha!} We brought it home and turned into a beautiful, romantic wreath!

Lets Make It Together!

Start with an old book, I used a copy of The Notebook that I picked up from my local thrift store for $0.88. Carefully tear out the pages along the bind.

Start by rolling each book page on a diagonal and hot glue the bottom corner to the roll.

How to make a paper wreath from a book

We had ordered pizza for dinner 🙂 so I used the lid of the box for a wreath form. I traced a circle that was 11″ wide.

Place a dab of hot glue on the bottom of each roll and place about 1″ from the bottom of the roll on the cardboard.

Continue around the entire circle. Be sure to space our rolls so they touch at the widest part, not the narrowest.

Row 2 should be placed slightly below the 1st row

Row 3 will require the rolls to be slightly bent up at the bottom of the roll

The very last roll is the center circle piece. I cut mine down on the tops just a bit to make it not so tall and “higher on one side”. I then placed hot glue around the entire roll and placed it in the middle.

Protecting Your Wreath | Avoid Yellowing of Pages

I have gotten asked by several people if there’s a way to spray this wreath to help protect the pages from yellowing over time. I researched products and feel comfortable recommending clear coatings aerosol UV protection spray, but please know, that I have not personally used this product. But based off of the product description, I do believe it would work great!

    I lost my husband a little over a year ago. I’d love to make this from books he read ( westerns ) and give one to each of our children. Do you think the pages wound turn yellow after a time ???

    1. Hi Katherine! Ohh that is such a fantastic idea!! Such a special way to remember him. ❤️❤️ I do think that the pages would turn yellow over time – simply because that’s just what old paper does. I’ve had a lot of questions over on Hometalk asking me if you could spray the pages once the wreath was completed. My thought is that you could if you did it very carefully and avoided getting the spray too close and making the pages wet. The product I suggested is: https://amzn.to/2S2XvPM
