Wrap a Wreath Form in Book Pages

Create a vintage look for a Christmas wreath with strips of paper cut from unused books. Download the patterns available below, trace onto tracing paper, and cut out. Cut twenty two 1x7-inch strips from book pages (you'll need two books with contrasting print or paper tones). Wrap the strips around a 12-inch foam wreath form, alternating light and dark print or page tones; paste and pin ends of strips to the back of the wreath. Brush with decoupage medium; let dry. Use the rose pattern to cut eight circles from the book pages; draw a spiral on the wrong side of each circle. Cut the spiral, then freehand-cut scallops on the spiral (as shown by the dotted lines). Starting at the X on the pattern, roll the spiral tightly around a skewer, keeping the bottom edges even. Roll down the petal edges into gentle curves; glue rose to the wreath base. Continue with as many roses as desired; trace and cut the flower and leaf patterns from cardstock and book papers. Glue the flowers and leaves to the wreath.
