Book Page Wreath

2011 03 09_0639When I first saw this wreath Stephanie made over at Under The Table and Dreaming, I knew I wanted, no needed one for my own house. What I didn't realize it that it would take at least 275 rosettes to complete one wreath. After what felt like hours, days, and weeks,  of cutting spirals and rolling flowers at every spare moment I finally finished it. 2011 03 09_0769 I can tell you it was worth all the burned fingers, blisters, and time it took to make. I just love walking past it every day! I hung it in the foyer over my crate thingy. :) I bought it at a yard sale last year and am still trying to figure out what its original purpose was. I don't think I ever shared this piece on here before. 2011 03 09_0636Here is the view from the front door. 2011 03 09_0637 I won't share how I made it as I followed exactly what Stephanie did in her tutorial. So if you want to make one for yourself you can read how to do it here- Under The Table and Dreaming.2011 03 09_0640It was really fun to put together after all the flowers had been rolled. 2011 03 09_0639

  5. Fabulous wreath, very detailed! But I have to admit, I am distracted by the unit your wreath is displayed on! I am a tiny cubby addict... so jealous!

    Stopping by from your link @ Funky Junk Sisters!

  7. Wow, your wreath is gorgeous!!

    As for your screen/cubby piece, I think it might be winter storage for bulbs that can't winter in the ground. A local gladiola grower had similar boxes for the glad bulbs that needed to be dug up in the fall. The only difference is that his were a bunch of small boxes each the size of one of the compartments in yours. Anyway, that's just my guess!

  11. The wreath is beautiful; one of the best I've ever seen. I'm just going to have to admire yours because I don't think I would have the patience to do my own. I'd like to steal that "crate thingy" away from you. That's an awesome piece!!! Visiting over from FJI's SNS. I'm going to have to look around at what else you've been doing.

  13. I wonder if the "crate" is a printer's box where they used to keep their type. But maybe it is a little larger than they usually are. Hard to really tell from the photo. I would love to get one since my husband is a printer!

    Thanks for sharing!
