A Small Burst of Christmas Crafting

Isn’t this a fun way to use a cool but broken vintage book? I love how it turned out, and it didn’t take very long at all. All the materials I had to buy for this craft cost me about $2 (wire wreath frame). I used a few retired Christmas ornaments, and a piece of an old garland, and there you have it! Something new and fun for this Christmas. I have a few more of these silly type things, but they aren’t done yet, so I can’t show you. But I will tell you this much : Blaire does not like finger painting.

  1. I love it! I have seen these types of wreaths done with old sheet music, but not with a vintage book. I love the color that the illustrations bring to it. This is great! I just might have to try it. I have some broken vintage readers that would work. Can’t wait to see what else you have in the works.

  2. Very cute! Would it work with old Christmas cards? I’m always looking for a way to use ones from years past that have beautiful artwork!

  3. Love book page wreaths! My sister made a fall one where she cut the pages in leaf shapes, this weekend my mom and I are working on one using our old (and falling apart anyway) Narnia books. Last year I covered ball ornaments with text and pictures from the same book set.

    Yours is the first I’ve seen with colored pictures, so fun!

  4. That is beautiful! I like the idea of using Christmas cards also.

    Just to let you know, my browser crashed when I visited Femina.

  5. My browser crashed too. For several months now and then I get a virus alert and then crash. Don’t visit as much as I would like anymore because of that.

  6. The blog doesn’t give me any problems, but I have a Mac. Maybe that’s why? This is a great craft. I’ll have to remember it for next year. I hope that the site’s issue will be resolved so we can keep getting new Advent/Christmas posts!
