Bandwagon Paperback Wreath?

Last winter, right around the time to start preparing for Christmas....Lindsay @ Living with Lindsay posted how she took some paperback books into wreaths.. And I jumped on the bandwagon and made myself one. And I had the welts on my fingetips from the hot glue gun to prove it.


I loved my creation and hung it in my office... 


My family was less than enthused with my wreath... but I love it!


I painted the edges of two paperback books with a brown paint...


And after lots of rolling and glueing, it was done!


And now its above my jewelry chest in the bedroom.

Were you on the bandwagon for this wreath?

Your paperback wreath is truly charming. The brown paint applied first hand really makes a difference in the final result, doesn't it? Following you now thru the Over 40 linky party. Pam @ Sallygoodin
