This fan shaped wreath is the perfect wreath for your cottage, shabby chic, French flea market, Paris apartment, or vintage style decor. Hang it over a door, a window, or above an antique mirror.

This particular wreath is approximately 17" across and 10" high; 14" high if you include the ribbon hanger.

It is made from a vintage French book dated 1923 called Literature Francaise.

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.

The centerpiece is the French greeting, Bonjour, printed on a flyleaf page from the book. It is 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 with the vintage seam binding ribbon, or slip the ribbon off the loop, and use the wire loop for hanging. Each wreath is neatly finished on the back, and is signed and dated, as well as having the name and date of the book used.
