I can see this wreath hanging on a dorm wall or in a college professor's office. Perhaps you have someone going away to college for the first time and they need a little help in decorating? This could be their first decor piece!

This wreath is made from pages of a book called From a College Window by A.C. Benson and is dated 1906.

The colors are cream \/ ivory pages & ribbon, black text, and a pale aqua \/ robin's egg blue center medallion. A ribbon to match the medallion would be very lovely!

These wreaths are perfect for dorms or apartments, cottage, shabby chic, French flea market, Paris apartment, or vintage style decors. Hang them at a special event, hang one to add vintage charm to your summer soiree ~ wherever you desire soft, creamy, dreamy, vintage whites. Why not choose the obvious? Hang one of these book wreaths in a library or study!

The center medallion is made from the book cover and the title page. It has been surrounded by a hand pleated crepe paper ruffle. A wire hanger is attached to the base on the back. The vintage ribbon may be removed from the wire loop if desired. This wreath is signed and dated on the back, as well as having the name and date of the book used. This particular wreath is approximately 16" in diameter.
Vintage clothes hanger not included.

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.
