This is handmade and will be very similar to the original but not identical.
This vintage book page wreath would be a unique paper sculpture for your eclectic, vintage, farmhouse, cottage, or shabby chic home.
Book used: a vintage Christmas stories book.
Colors: cream, red, and black.
This particular wreath is approximately 17" in diameter.
The centerpiece will be an old flyleaf page or parchment paper printed with Merry Christmas and a 1911 mistletoe illustration. It is surrounded by a red, hand-pleated, crepe paper ruffle.
A wire hanger is attached to the base on the back. This wreath can hang with the vintage ribbon, or you may remove the ribbon and hang from the wire loop in the back. The base is covered with pages from the same book. The back is finished very neatly. The wreath is signed and dated on the back, as well as having the name and date of the book used.
I don’t destroy perfectly good books as a rule, and use books that are falling apart, have pages missing, or are damaged in one way or another.
*I ship in large 18" x 18" x 6" boxes purchased specifically for the wreaths. I also use lots of cushioning materials to protect the wreath inside the box. Be sure to save your box ~ it is perfect for storing the wreath when needed. I use UPS GROUND for these packages, unless you are in a nearby state, and then I will use USPS Priority. Insurance is included on all wreaths.

For the inquiring minds, the door behind the wreath was an old one from my childhood home. It now serves as a headboard.
