This vintage book wreath would be a unique paper sculpture for several decor styles such as eclectic, Paris apartment, French flea-market, vintage, farmhouse, cottage chic, or shabby chic.

Book used: vintage French book, vintage French grammar book, or French-English dictionary

Colors in this piece: Ivory, cream, black.

This particular wreath is approximately 17" in diameter.

The centerpiece will be an old flyleaf page or parchment paper with a bee inside a wreath printed on it by me. The medallion is surrounded by a 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.

I am very honored that my work has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens Make It Yourself, FOLK, Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts, Romantic Homes, GreenCraft (a Stampington publication), Early American Life, Create and Decorate, Victoria, Arts & Crafts, and several online home decor and wedding blogs, as well as a book by Jason Thompson called Playing with Books: Upcycling, Deconstructing, and Reimagining the Book.
