DIY : Christmas Wreath

This Christmas, let’s not splurge on Christmas decor but DIY them instead. I was at The Speakeasy Restaurant & Bar and saw this beautiful Christmas Wreath. Fortunately the owner Soraya is so kind to share with me how she made the wreath. Let’s take a look at how she transforms several Romance Novel into a beautiful wreath.

Romance Novels

Cut leaves, 100s and 100s and 100s of leaves.

Scrunch them up. Make them really crumpled. You can do a whole bunch at a time.

Grab the wider end, and roll it up. This is the bit you need to stick onto the wreath.

Spray Mount the wreath …(by the way you will have to cut out a cardboard circle) and attach the paper leaves and move in one direction.


Thank you Soraya for the pictures and tutorial.

Check out my post on their awesome Christmas Eve Dinner preview I had last Saturday here. I’m so in love with their Cod Brandade!

Also check out another of Soraya’s Christmas creation : DIY Soft Glow Lamp.

    Colour is too plain, maybe spray some colour on it?

    If you are going for a white Xmas then this is good. Otherwise, colored pages will do the trick :D

    Love it! But I think I’ll be a bit ‘sum thong’ to cut out the pages of the book.
