Book Page Tree Topper And Wreaths

Last year I had watched this Youtube video on how to make a book page wreath..It was too close to Christmas , so I knew I wanted to make one this year .  Yesterday my daughter and I made 4 wreaths and the tree topper ! Love the tree topper !

 There is a special way to roll the book pages so watch the video , it really helps! To make the tree topper I used a luncheon size paper plate turned upside down . Did 2 rows around the plate , added some ornaments for the center . We cut a piece of the roll from a roll of decomesh , glued it to the front of the plate and slipped the top of the tree into it .. Easy !
 For the wreaths we used cardboard boxes for the backing , drew an 8 inch circle , then a 4 inch circle and hot glued the paper tubes to the circles. Once its finished we went back and stuck tubes in wherever there were spaces. For the insides of the wreaths we folded the tubes and stapled about an inch up to make them shorter  .. we wanted the centers to be really full
 It takes about 120 tubes for each wreath, that you have to tape and staple..then glue.

 This tree is in the living room , its one of 3 in there right now.. hopefully adding the real tree today or tomorrow !

 This wreath with the aqua is my daughters..
 This wreath with the gold is for my sons girlfriend
 This wreath with the green and red is for my daughter in law..
 The balls for the center of the wreaths came from Dollar Tree and Targets dollar section.or the tree topper I used some old ornaments to make it look more vintage.
and this wreath is mine .. I hung it on the door in the family room that leads to the garage..from a piece of burlap. Aren't they all just beautiful ?

The tree topper and all of the wreaths are just lovely. I have been wanting to make one of these myself but haven't gotten around to it.

I love it Priscilla! I have made 4 of these wreaths, but never thought of using one for a tree topper. I might see how mine looks on top of my mercury glass tree. Thanks for the idea! And thanks for sharing it with SYC.
