Hello friends!

I’ve got some super fun news to share with y’all today!!!

I’m so over-the-moon excited to introduce y’all to my lovely friend Kelly at North Country Nest! Kelly and her handy husband are in the process of renovating her own fixer-upper too and I’ve absolutely loved following along with their adventures (you’ll definitely want to check out her beautiful farmhouse style entryway!!!).

I’m so thrilled to announce that Kelly will be popping in the fourth Wednesday each month to share all sorts of lovely ideas here at Making it in the Mountains!

I have no doubt that you’re going to love her as much as I do!
 


 

Hello! Kelly here from North Country Nest.

Can I first tell you how excited I am to be joining this great community??

Kristi raves all about her readers and when she asked if I wanted to start contributing on her blog, I didn’t even hesitate. Of course I would love the chance to meet you and share a fun DIY every month.

Something you should know about me? I love books. Not only is the smell one of my favorites, I also love how versatile they are. Besides the obvious entertainment they provide, you can style them on a bookshelf, add some twine around a stack for decorating, cover them with fun paper or completely transform them into something unexpected.

For this month’s DIY, I wanted to incorporate my love of all things book related with some farmhouse style.

Friends, meet the magnolia style book wreath.

It’s quick to put together and all you need is an old book – you know… the one that wasn’t that great and definitely not worth reading again – a glue gun and a wire wreath frame. And some paint too if you want to add a little extra color. 🙂

DIY Magnolia Style Book Wreath
 
 

Step one. Tear out three to four pages and fold it in quarters. Cut out a magnolia leaf along the open edge. Repeat until you have a nice sized pile of book leaves.

Step two. Fold in one corner of the leaf and glue it to itself. Repeat with the other corner.

Step three. Glue the folded leaf to the wire wreath frame. Repeat until the entire frame is covered.

Step four. This one is optional and for all you color lovers out there. Grab a craft paint brush and some craft paint [I used a light green that just screams spring] and lightly paint the tips of all the leaves.

  1. Wow I love how cute this wreath turned out and the best part is that I finally have an idea of what to do with those books that weren’t that great. Thank you so much for sharing Kelly, I can’t wait to see what you come up with next month!

  2. Very pretty – I have all the ingredients to make one too! Thanks for the inspiration. I’d love to pin it … but could you please fix the spelling of ‘style’ on the pinnable picture? I know it will drive my teacher friends to distraction!

  3. What to do with piles of old books! This is a nice recycling project, and the end result is a very attractive wreath. It looks great when hung on the old window frame.

  4. Another great way to use old book pages which I LOVE. I think it would be cute to also add a simple, tiny stamp on some of the petals!

  5. Kristy, this is absolutely beautiful! I am going to try my hand at this for above my faux fireplace. Hopefully, it will turn out as beautifully as yours did. Thanks so much for sharing at Project Inspired.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
