Book Page Wall Art....

I'm not exactly sure what I should call this.... any ideas? I LOVE how it turned out, but I'm not sure what it is...
an old book (or one you don't like, I used a book I had to read in college and I will NEVER read again)
Styrofoam disc (2 pack/$1 from dollar store)
a lot of Hot Glue and Glue Gun

I started out by tearing pages out of the book, (GASP! I know I love books too) and the roll one page starting in the corner to make a skinny cone. One end will be bigger and more open and the other end will be smaller. Use hot glue to hold the edge then hot glue to the sytrofoam disc. The first layer was the longest out and I glued them right to the back of the disc. The next layers I folded the end to make them shorter and started gluing them in front in the side of the disc.
And I just went around and around until it was as full as I could get it.

Then for the Rosette Center. I followed a tutorial I found HERE. (I LOVE this wreath). And I just squashed as many rosettes as tightly as I could together to fill the center, Then I added a ribbon loop to the back of the disc so that I could hang it up.

 I just LOVE how it turned out and it is UNIQUE and AFFORDABLE wall art. Love it!

  1. So cute! I might have to whip out the old glue gun and give it a whirl!

  2. It's like sunburst meets book art! Love it! Such a statement piece for a family room or library...
