Book Wreath {sigh}

For ages I've have been ooohhing and aahhhing over book wreaths.

Bloggyland is filled with beautiful examples.

They are just so pretty and I love the graphic element they give a space.

I'm not sure who came up with the idea but I do know it was pure genius!

Sadly, I've put off making one for months and months.

This week I decided enough was enough!  It was high time to attempt it.

  Watch out world, I'm packing a glue gun  - - y'all better back up!

Here she is . . .


She's just so pretty!

I'm completely smitten.

For the middle I added a sparkly silver snowflake and a little tinsel pipe cleaner for added sparkle.

To finish up the display,
 I added a stack of books tied with a muslin bow.  Another snowflake and some small bits and pieces of holiday sparkle around a bottlebrush tree.

Along side the books I added a cake stand with a little vignette of my favorite things.

Another bottlebrush tree, a petite silver glitter church and one of the sweetest tiny reindeer from my collection.

I'm planning on switching out the glitter church for a slightly larger glitter house. 
It's a project in the works . . . but instead of finishing it up I made this . . .

(are you sick of my pictures?   Sorry couldn't help myself - - it just so pretty!!!)

Have you made one for yourself yet?

until tomorrow,

  1. You HAD to bring this up, didn't you???? LOL!!! Yours looks like a really beautiful wreath, Robin, not like mine!!! LOL!!

  2. CUTE WREATH!! I just made one too.

  3. Love your wreath. But I love everything I have seen on your blog. I have not made a book wreath like yours. I made a different kind of book wreath which hangs on my mantel. I love your cake plate vignette as well.

  4. SO pretty! Love the center that you added. I just love those wreaths and really need to make one soon!

  5. Dear Robin,

    your "letter-star" looks very nice. I like it!! But now you have consumed all pages and have nothing for reading this evening ;)



  6. Well speaking of genius...your wreath is just gorgeous! I've seen different representations but yours blows them away by far. The "little dear" is so charming. I just want to hold it in the palm of my hand : )

  7. My word, you are packin'. That thing is gorgeous Robin. Love it!


  8. did make the prettiest wreath! My favorite for sure. Everything looks beautiful. And that little deer is too cute.

  9. Your wreath is beautiful! I love the touch of silver , and I always find snowflakes pretty. I've been wanting to make one too, but it looks very time consuming. Did it take a long time?

  10. Your book wreath is GORGEOUS, girl!!! Would you be so kind as to tell me where you got the tutorial? I am dieing to make one like that using sheet music, but I haven't got a clue how it is done! I know I will just waste all of my lovely sheet music, if I don't find out how first.
    Your little vignettes are gorgeous, I checked out the two before this post, your kitchen is lovely, too. You do a great job of decorating.
    Hugs, Cindy

  11. Robin, I am smitten with them too, but have not made one!
