Book Page Ornaments and The Dining Room Tree

Book page ornaments are popping up all over blogland , so I had to make some ! I tried last night to make some I saw on Pinterest that looked like snowflakes, but it took me an hour and it was only half finished..With one !! This morning I made these and they are very easy !

 I also had to add that chalkboard look  element to them as well .. I am using these on my dining room tree.
 To make these I cut strips of book pages .. 3 pages per loop.. each strip  1/2 inch wide and I used 9 loops to make each one. Cut about 1/2 inch off all the way around the pages to get rid of the white margins..
 I started out trying to hot glue each loop but then a lightbulb went off and I got out the stapler ! Staple each of your loops together..

 Then hot glue them all together..Hold them until they stick...It doesn't really matter what your center looks like because you will be adding something to the top.
 I added Dollar Tree snowflake ornaments and also cut black paper with a paper punch and wrote on it with a white sharpie paint pen.

I decorated this tree in our dining room with platinum colored ornaments, burlap woven through the tree, pinecones, burlap flowers, these book page ornaments, Dollar Tree snowflakes and ornaments, some white flower picks from an estate sale and glittery branches from Michaels that I cut apart..there's also some beaded garlands..

 It is sitting in a bucket that we got at a church rummage sale..and oh boy did I fight with this tree to get it to stand in the bucket .. I have a piece of burlap over the top of the bucket so you can't see the big cans of crushed tomatoes , cans of enchilada sauce and a weight from the boys weight set ! :) But it is standing up straight and tall !!!
Thanks for visiting ..I love this tree and I hope you do too !
Thinking about all those affected by the tornadoes yesterday !I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest ..all the links are in the sidebar !
