Book pages wreath

Everyone knows I like to read, but I also just like books and they way they look ! I recently saw something online I knew had to try. Its a wreath made out of book pages ! Here's what you need...
A styrophoam wreath
book (or two)
hot glue gun
ribbon to hang it up

I started with the back rolling the pages every which way until i had one row all the way around the wreath. Make sure you don't fold them, you want it to look round and full. So, once I was done with the back row, I truned it over so I could start working on the front, like this

Then once you start doing the middle and front, it gets a little more difficult. For the tops and sides, I folded a little tab on the bottom so it would have a way to stand up still. This was a time consuming process and I'm not the world's most patient person. I'm not gonna lie, I'm still not done. I need to fill it in a little bit more, I was just super excited about it and wanted to share !

Here's what it looks like now on our guest room's door. As you can tell, the middle needs a little bit more "fluff". I'm not really good at explaining, so lucky for me, has put up a little YouTube video to show to to fold and put the pages in to fill it in.

So, thats my wreath ! Hopefully, I'll be able to do something else fun and crafty soon ! I've got something in mind for a new lamp shade :)
