Book Page Leaf Garlands and Decor

I admit I am a color junky, but I've also have a serious love of books, and I hate to get rid of them. When they are beyond their useful life I use as many as I can in my projects
including recycling old book pages for all sorts of crafts and decor. 

Here's my latest...a garland made of book pages and I am smitten once again!


The Welding Man built me a wonderful bakers rack to hold my blue glassware, 
but that collection has grown quite large and moved to the kitchen bay windows
 So I decorate my backers rack seasonally with different looks. 

I am loving this combo of galvanized metals, grey barn "boards," natural wood tones 
and white pottery. I gathered a bunch of my book page projects and set them up.

But the leaf garlands really pulls everything together.


Yup, I will pretty much cover anything with old book pages to see how it looks. LOL.
My kids tell The Welding Man not to sit in one place too long because...wink wink nod...
Mom will cover you with book pages.

So far he hasn't sat still long enough. Just sayin'.


Thrift store vases...check.
Old Christmas balls...check.
Plastic clock...check.
Paper mache birds...check.
Cardboard letters...check.
Book page leaves on painted branches...check.
Pizza cardboard book page wreath?...check check check.


In my NEXT post I will show you how to make this very simple, very appealing garland. 
Stay tuned!I'll post a link at the bottom when that DIY post is active.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment, if you would. 
I enjoy reading what you have to say!
