Looking for a unique wreath for your front door that doesn't look like your neighbor's? Instead of buying a cookie cutter wreath from your local department store, why not make one with stuff you already have at home? This wreath is made with book pages that have been lightly painted in fall colors, which give the wreath a fun, unique and vintage flair. Who said books were just for reading?

Hate that cheesy romance novel your mother-in-law gave you? Instead of letting it take up space on your bookshelf, rip out the pages and make this beautiful fall wreath! You can customize the size and colors of the wreath for any season so you can have a new wreath for every occasion!
