DIY Book Page Leaves

You know we love our book crafts here at Daily Mayo. Today, in celebration of the leaves finally turning colors in Texas, I’m sharing with you the DIY book page leaves I made this fall. Keep reading for the full tutorial!

DIY Book Page Leaves Tutorial

Supplies:

Book Page Leaves Step 1

Tear out the pages from the book and glue them to the card stock paper. I overlapped the pages to eliminate as much white space as possible. Cover each side of the paper. I found you could get between five and six leaves per page, so cover however many card stock pages you want with the book page leaves.

Book Page Leaves Step 2

Print the leaf patterns and cut them out. Trace the patterns onto the book page leaves with a pen or pencil. Cut out the leaf shapes.

Book Page Leaves Step 3

Paint the entire surface of both sides of each book page leaf with watercolor paint. I used orange, red, yellow, and green. The thinner the paint, the lighter the leaf color. Adjust as you like.

Book Page Leaves Step 4

Allow the book page leaves to dry. When the paint is fully dry, paint the edges with brown watercolor paint and add a leaf spine to both sides of each leaf. This makes it a bit more three dimensional. If I had the right color of glitter glue, I probably would have added that as the leaf spine for a bit more sparkle. Allow the book page leaves to fully dry.

Book Page Leaves Step 5

If desired, you may punch a hole in the stems or elsewhere on the leaves to hang them in a banner. I didn’t want to do that this time, so I sprinkled the  book pages leaves across the top of my low bookshelf for a fun fall decoration.

10 Book-Themed Fall Crafts

Fall is all about pumpkins, spicy smells, warm blankets, and of course, books.

If you are both crafty and bookish, the idea of murdering a book to make a craft may hurt you, but there are tons of faux book pages you can use for these crafts, or you can use books that you hate like I do.

DIY Book Crafts: Book Page Heart Wreath

I love book-themed crafts. Since last fall, I’ve made a book pumpkin, book Christmas trees, and book stars.

Today, we have yet another bookish craft- a book page wreath!

I’m not entirely sure if this wreath fits the definition, because it doesn’t have a hole in the center, but I’m calling it a book wreath anyway.

Want to make your own book page wreath for Valentine’s Day or any other day? Follow these simple steps!

How to Make a Book Page Heart Wreath

Supplies:

  • A book you hate
  • Scissors
  • A shallow dish
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Acrylic paint
  • Pen
  • Cardboard
  • String

Step 1

Want to make an awesome bookish-themed Valentine craft this year? Why not a book page heart wreath?

Draw the outline of a heart onto the cardboard. You can choose a different design if you want it to be a year-round decoration and not just Valentine’s Day themed. Cut out the design with scissors or a craft knife. Don’t cut yourself.

Step 2

Want to make an awesome bookish-themed Valentine craft this year? Why not a book page heart wreath?

Tear away about 10 pages from the book spine. Cut the pages into an oval shape.*

*This step is actually quite important. When I left the pages square, they resembled nothing so much as crumpled, used tissues. Which did not look good. Take the time to round your edges.

Step 3

Want to make an awesome bookish-themed Valentine craft this year? Why not a book page heart wreath?

Crumple the oval into a flower shape. I did this by pulling the center of the oval down and pinching it between my fingers, then I rolled the outside edges in until they resembled petals. This is not an exact science, clearly. Make at least 50 of these. Make more if your heart is really large, less if you actually make an official wreath and cut out the center of the heart.

Step 4

Want to make an awesome bookish-themed Valentine craft this year? Why not a book page heart wreath?

Pour about a quarter’s worth of acrylic paint into your dish. Add in just enough water to make it look like paint soup. Stir the mixture.

Step 5

Want to make an awesome bookish-themed Valentine craft this year? Why not a book page heart wreath?

Dip the tips of each petal into the paint one by one. Only paint just the very tip for the same effect that I created. Set the petals onto paper towels to dry.

Step 6

Want to make an awesome bookish-themed Valentine craft this year? Why not a book page heart wreath?

When dry, glue the book page petals to the cardboard cutout starting on the outside edge and working in toward the center. As I glued, I pinched and twisted the bottoms of each petal (the previous center of the page) to make them stick to the cardboard better. Fill in all gaps with additional petals.

Step 7

Glue a piece of looped string to the back of the cardboard so you can hang it on the wall. Step back and admire how crafty and amazing you are. It’s what I did.
