When I was cleaning out my Kindergarten classroom last May, I found a plethora of books that were super cute, but super outdated – as in…NONE of my kids should EVER be expected to read them. Honestly. So what better way to keep these books alive than to make them into a super cute vintage paper wreath?
*scalloped paper cut (not pictured) – Mine was purple and about 3 inches
*glitter (optional, but glitter makes everything better!)
*glue (I used mod podge) if you choose to do glitter on the edges
Another tip: when you buy your pins, make sure your pins have a nice big “head” so it can grab onto your paper and not just slide off.
