Book Page Magnolia Wreath

If you have been following our blog for any length of time, you probably know that we love book page projects. Past creations using book pages are Book Page 2 Minute Quick Print Art Quote Decorative Birdhouse and Paper Roses using Vintage Book Pages. These projects are all very easy to do and are relatively quick to complete. I have been wanting to make a book page magnolia wreath for some time now. On a recent gloomy, rainy day it seemed like the perfect time to pull all of my materials together. (This post contains affiliate links).

Supplies Needed:

This is the same vintage book that I have been using for years. Don’t worry – this book has no antique or collectible value. I purchased it for .25 cents at a college book sale and it was falling apart.

BOOK PAGE MAGNOLIA WREATH

This wreath form was purchased at the dollar store. I couldn’t believe that they had them – they are a lot more costly at the craft store.

Using my hands I stacked eight book pages and tore them into 2 inch strips.

These strips were wrapped around the wreath form and hot glued into place. As you can see, this step doesn’t need to be perfect.

I then stacked 10 book pages together and folded the page in half. This way I could cut out a 40 leaf shapes in quick order. These leaves are approximately 3 ½ inches long.

I lightly crimped each book page leaf down the middle to add more dimension. Real magnolia leaves slightly roll up on the edges. The leaves are added one at a time and attached with a dot of hot glue on the bottom of the leaf. Make sure all of your leaves are added in the same direction all the way around the wreath.

The wreath looks super cute.

It is going to get a lot of use in my home decor. I suspect it will moved moved around the house a lot. :)

You can see I had fun staging with different colors.

Overall, this was a very easy project. Beginning to end the wreath took about 20 minutes to make. Now, I’m off to see how this looks in the guest room!Vicki's Blog Signature
