This book paper garland brings new life to a vintage copy of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. In this garland, words from the classic novel wrap around 1-inch balls. Your friends and family will love spying the names of familiar characters, places, and turns-of-phrase on this unique addition to your home decor, wedding, or party.

The lightweight balls on this garland will be left unknotted (except at each end) on coffee-dyed twine, so you can position them as you see fit. They're easy to slide and they stay where you put them. If you space them about 6" apart, they'll evenly fill the six-foot string. I covered each of these balls by hand, so each one is unique. Yours will be very similar to the one shown.

* 12 paper-covered balls
* Each ball 1" in diameter
* Total string length (knot to knot) of 6 feet
* Strung on your choice of naturally coffee-dyed cotton twine (shown), silk, or leather
* Extra string and loop on each end for hanging
* Eco-friendly, made from recycled newspaper and book paper

I've sprayed each ball with a moisture-resistant, UV-protective, acrylic sealant, but bottom-line, this garland is made with paper and paper+water=bad news. That being said, I left mine out in a severe thunderstorm and it looks none the worse for wear, so don't stress out too much. Also, though this garland makes great nursery decor, please display it out of reach of small children.

This garland comes packaged in a muslin bag, with a Palimpsestic label. All garlands are shipped via USPS within 3-5 days.

If you need a longer length. different color options, or more strands than I have listed, let me know. There's a lot I can do to make this decoration just right for you, so please don't hesitate to convo me using the "Contact" link on the right.

I usually rely on the serendipity of garage sales, thrift stores, and library sales to bring me books. Occasionally, when I'm looking for a specific title, I purchase the lowest-graded condition copy available from a conglomeration of online booksellers. I never use valuable, or rare books in my work, but I do look for copies with evidence of a previous life in a library or well-read personal collection.
