Book Page Garland

Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage was inspired by her love of the written word to create a garland for her Halloween mantel from book pages. You can use an old book or create that aged look like Gina did with a coffee stain.

After lots and lots of staples, Gina had this beauty to adorn her mantel with! I love this look for fall and think it would also make a beautiful addition to a Christmas mantel. You could even add some hidden meaning by using a special text or the sheet music for Christmas carols.
