“The Book of Exodus” Wreath



Ex wreath 01

I saw some great wreaths made out of book pages by Connie Govea Stuart in Somerset Life a few months ago. 

I wanted to make a wreath from one of my old Bibles that was falling apart.  I decided to make a wreath using the pages from the book of Exodus.

I used a verse from Exodus as the main accent for the tag and then used the entire book of Exodus to fill the wreath.

I used a wooden embroidery hoop for the frame and wrapped it in ribbon.  Next I rolled each page on a pencil and then flattened it with my hand.  I hot glued the pages around the hoop and used a pretty silk ribbon for a hanger.  I then added the tag and some ephemera for interest and some buttons. 

 I used 4 pages and folded them into fans, and then folded those fans in half.  By gluing the sides together I had a perfect, full rosette to add in the center of the wreath.  I adhered this last, followed by a dried flower. Lastly, I sponged some distressing ink around the circumference of the wreath to darken the edges.
