To make this wreath with book pages, you’ll need the following supplies and materials. This is a very inexpensive DIY paper wreath to make!

  • Book Pages : Approximately 75 book pages that are 5 1/2″ x 9″ or a similar size.
  • Wire wreath frame – I used an 18″ frame but you can make any size.
  • Tape – I used tape when wrapping the frame.
  • Hot Glue Gun – I prefer a low-temperature glue gun for this craft.
  • Twine – Twine or ribbon for the decorative scrolls.

  • Book Pages - I used approximately 75
  • Wire Wreath Frame - I used an 18" frame
  • Twine


  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Small Wooden Dowel or a round pen or pencil


  1. Carefully tear the pages out of a book.

    The book I used was 5 1/2" x 9 ". It helped to remove the binding from the book first.

  2. Cut a few of the pages into strips and wrap your wreath frame with the paper making sure to cover the entire frame so it doesn't show.

    This gives the paper scrolls a better surface to stick to. Set this aside.

  3. Use the dowel to roll the remaining book pages all the way to the end, remove the dowel, and roll the book page in the opposite direction halfway.

    It will look like you have two scrolls but you're getting two for one!

  4. Slightly roll the two sections apart and add a squiggle of hot glue then roll them back up so they stick to the glue..

    To make the project faster, glue a lot of scrolls so assembly goes quickly!

  5. Glue the scrolls to the frame paying attention to the center and outer edges to maintain roundness on both sides. You'll have gaps.

  6. Go back around a second time and fill in the gaps with more scrolls.

  7. Once your wreath is filled in, add some scrolls with twine wrapped around them.

    I used black velvet ribbon on my first wreath and I stood back and it looked like bats. I couldn't unsee it so I went with it. It was September 30th so it worked! Happy Halloween!

  8. Add seasonal decorations if you'd like.

    Your book page wreath can be decorated for Christmas, Halloween, or any other holiday or season.

  9. The final step is to hang your wreath. You can glue ribbon to the back or poke a hole through the back and hang the wreath on a nail.

How do you roll a book page for a wreath?

Use a dowel or smooth pen/pencil to tightly roll each page and then secure them shut with glue.

How do you attach book pages to a wire wreath frame?

Wrap the wreath frame in strips of book pages first so the flowers or scrolls stick.
