For some reason this vintage wreath caught my eye. I like that it's made from old music or book pages. It's another way to make your decor meaningful, especially if you use a favorite book. You don't have to tear up a family treasures, you could use a new book and even try antiquing it if you like the look. You can also do this with an old children's book (try Ebay to find an old favorite) and use it in your kid's room. I just wanted something old, and I love music. I got my papers from the DI of course, in an awsome music book/magazine from the 40's. There are several ways to do this. Some use to rows of cones, some have them all rumply looking, some stick out towards you. See what way you like best! I can't find the tutorial I used but here's a similar one. The only detail I think it's missing is when you make the cones, try taking two opposite corners and bringing them towards each other. Then pull them in and roll it, keeping the bottom tighter of course. Right now my wreath is hanging in my dining room. It's near my computer, and it took me a couple of weeks to figure out what that musty paper smell was.
Since I'm crazy here are some other cool versions
