*This wreath listing is a MADE TO ORDER item and will ship within 10 days of your cleared payment. It will be very similar to the one in the photo (and the ones you see in my sold items in both etsy shops: http:\/\/www.simplejoyspaperie.etsy.com and http:\/\/honeysucklelane.etsy.com). I will use a vintage French book, or if you prefer, I can send you a list of books to choose from.

This is the perfect wreath for your cottage, shabby chic, French flea market, Paris apartment, or vintage style decor. Hang a beautiful wreath or two at your wedding... Hang them on the doors of your church, or at the reception... or use to add vintage charm to your summer soirees... wherever you desire soft, creamy, dreamy, vintage whites.

This particular wreath is approximately 16" in diameter. It is made from pages of a vintage French book. 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 have hand rolled each page and attached them in layers to a lightweight base. The base is covered with pages from the same book. The centerpiece is an original vintage bookplate that has been surrounded by a hand pleated crepe paper ruffle. A wire hanger is attached to the base on the back. This wreath can hang as is, or loop a vintage ribbon through the wire hanger and hang from the ribbon. Each wreath is signed and dated on the back, as well as having the name and date of the book used.

*This wreath ships in a purchased box that is 18” x 18” x 6”. I use UPS GROUND for these packages, as it is much cheaper than USPS. It also includes insurance. Once I ship your item, I WILL REFUND ANY OVER CHARGE if $1 or more.

*If you are outside the US and would like to order, please convo me with your address for a shipping quote.*

*I have more wreaths in the works with particular themes; check back once in a while to see what's new, or should I say, old.
