I'm not the first...

...but i'm probably not the last either because after you see this you are most definitely going to want to make it. this fabulous book wreath comes to us from living with lindsay...she even posts a little video!

what you will need: an old book, a wreath form, a hot glue gun, plenty of glue sticks, and some motivation. (pictured but not necessary: last night's leftovers of chicken & noodles and mashed potatoes...yum!)

what i'm going to recommend to you is to do all the mindless page rolling while watching your favorite makes this project feel less time-consuming. but somehow doing something in front of the tv instead of just watching feels so productive. might i suggest glee or law and order:svu? those are just a couple of this girl's faves.

also, even though i'm not new to hot glue, i still find myself having mini panic attacks thinking that somehow i've gotten a spiderweb on me. note to self: hot glue can be very stringy and spiderweb-like.

(i know, i know...i need curtains for my kitchen. i'm still searching for something just right.)

the end result is well worth it, n'est pas? the twinge of guilt i felt ripping up that book was quickly replaced with feeling like i somehow did this book a favor and saved it from a boring life at the dollar store. in fact, i believe it would thank me if it could.
