holiday cheer book wreath

I started decorating our apartment for Christmas this morning - the Glee Christmas album is blasting, all the boxes of decorations are out of storage, and I cracked open a box of chocolate covered peppermint Joe Joe's.  It is basically a perfect December day.

Do you have a trendy book wreath hanging somewhere in your home?  Give it a holiday spruce by adding some ornament balls.

So simple - you can poke metal ornament hangers right through the rolled book pages.  Make the holes deep in between the pages and you'll never see the hole when you remove the ornaments later.

My book wreath was already hanging in front of some green fabric (glued to the wall), so the red ornaments made it perfectly Christmas-y.

Love this! I've been trying to figure out an affordable wreath to make and this seems perfect.

Such a great idea. Too bad I got halfway through making a book wreath and stopped--too aggravating. I absolutely adore your ruffled Christmas stocking. Any chance of a tutorial on Christmas stockings??

Adorbable! I love Christmas decorations that bring a little cheer! :)

The red baubles just give it the vibrancy it needs for Christmas...great thought! Clever hanging it against a green wall too.

What a lovely idea! I have not seen the book wreath before, but I think the red ornaments really give it a wonderful splash of color. I'm going to have to google how to make one of these wreaths because they are just so dog gone cute. I've also added myself as a follower so I can see what other cool crafty ideas you have. Thanks for sharing.
