When I started working on my Santa book wreath I chose a vintage hardcover book and got to work. I quickly realized that I had made a big mistake. Not in my book choice, but in using a brush to paint the edges. They stuck together. So, I decided to use the book in a different way. The edges were covered in red and silver glitter paint. Then I covered the book with some packing paper that I had laying around and glued a Christmas ribbon down the spine.
