I saw a picture on Jan's blog and I actually gasped audibly. I was in love. Not only that, I was inspired. So I headed on over to Lindsay's blog to see exactly how to make one. And make one I did, this afternoon. (I was able to do the whole thing while the boys napped!) I still love it, and know exactly where it will go in my house.
Her original picture that caused the gasp. (still does!)
How did I make it mine? I bought dictionaries for my pages. (found at the dollar store, of course!) Maybe it's the scrapbooker in me, but I love definitions, and the idea of using dictionary pages made me happy. I'd love to make one using sheet music someday...
I used some lovely walnut distressed ink from my scrapbooking supplies to tint my pages. I also added a cream colored grosgrain ribbon to hang it with, and let the ends hang down below the wreath.
As soon as it is hanging, I will take more pictures. I just need the perfect shabby table and a few framed pictures. I plan to hang it year round. I am proud of myself and love how it turned out!
I also purchased this banner today from etsy seller funkyshique
I saw her banners and was immediately in love. I cannot wait to see it hanging in my house!
