This vintage book wreath would be a unique paper sculpture for many decor styles such as eclectic, vintage, or cottage. Perhaps you know a world traveller that would like it... or maybe a geography teacher... or someone who has sailed around the world? Maybe you have a dad that loves to travel ~ this would be a great Father's Day gift!

Book used: Funk & Wagnalls Hammond World Atlas (c)1983.

Colors in this piece: ocean / sea blue, pale green, dark geeen, brown, tan, yellow, orange, red, white, black {text}, .

This particular wreath is approximately 17" in diameter.

The centerpiece is a compass image printed on a flyleaf page. 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.
