We love Halloween over at Everyday Art.

Today we want to share with you one of our favorite Halloween creations: the Halloween Book Wreath.




Yes, those are book pages. Yes, I destroyed an old book in the process of making this wreath, which I feel a tiny bit bad about, BUUUTTTT I think it looks great, and it was an old book no one was reading anyway. :)
I first got this idea from Heidi at Vacuuming in High Heels and Pearls, and loved the potential.

So I gathered my supplies:
a wreath frame ($1 at the dollar store)
an old book (thanks mom)
and  a glue gun


I started carefully ripping out the pages of the book. I took each page indivdually and krinkled it up with the middle poking down and the edges all poking up.


Applied some hot glue onto what used to be the middle of the page...


...and stuck it onto the wreath frame. Easy peasy.


After the whole wreath was filled, I cut out some bat silhouettes and used the hot glue gun to apply them to the wreath.


Love it. Hope you are having fun preparing for Halloween?!
