Paper Wreaths!

5 Dec

A Book Wreath by Living with Lindsay - tutorial found below. (image via livingwithlindsay.com)

There are so many alternative to a classic green holiday wreath it can make your head spin (not that there’s anything wrong with a good standard evergreen).  Starting in early November I see wreaths made of twigs, leaves, metallic ornaments, and pom poms, but none have stood out to me this year quite like the Book Wreath.

A little something different for your door, mantle, or wall. (images from L to R via: Homemade by Jill, Etsy seller "Haru," Papier D'Amour)

I love the monochromatic simplicity, the ability to accessorize with whatever type of bow you deem a “holiday color,” and of course, I love love love typography in almost any form.

These type of wreaths are available for purchase at various eclectic and often sustainable retailers for upwards of $100 a pop.  If you’re a DIY kind of person though, a great tutorial on how to make your own can be found here at Living With Lindsey.

*Update: the wonderfully colorful middle wreath pictured above (plus other goodies from Haru) is available here — check it out!
