Pretty Paper Wreaths

SONY DSC

Recently I mentioned how I was thinking that a couple of paper book page wreaths would look pretty on my newly painted shutters.  I shared some inspiration pictures on that post here.  I did find one (or I should say two) on Etsy that suited my budget and the look I was going for. 

Two - French Paper Wreaths //  French Book Wreath // French Farmhouse Decor

I purchased two like this one pictured above from Roseflower48.  The above picture is from Rita’s Etsy shop as it is a nice close-up.  Isn’t it pretty?  And she had a listing for a pair as well, which worked out great since I wanted one for each shutter.

I am thrilled with this look for right now, but can easily see hanging two of those preserved boxwood wreaths from these shutters during the holidays.  Like this one I found on Etsy.

One of the things I love about the shutters is that it is easy to hang things off them using a clothespin clipped onto one of the louvers.  Easy on and easy off!

I even tried out these scrap fabric posey bag thingies I made.  I photographed these for my Etsy before I fixed the coloring/waxes on the shutters.

The cloth handle makes them easy to hang off the shutters.

  They also hang off a drawer nicely, too.  I have two of these in my Etsy.  Meanwhile, I am loving the look of my new book page wreaths on my newly painted shutters!

Frigid temps heading our way for tomorrow and the next few days. I’m hoping this isn’t a preview of what’s to come!

Hi Kathy! I love your book page wreaths on the shutters! They look so pretty! And that little French hen bag is charming! Such a lovely vignette!

Can't believe the holidays are almost here!! I'm taking a few deep breaths, and really focusing on making them precious for my family!

Have a lovely week, sweetie!

Hi Kathy, you found some great wreaths for your shutters....love the centers on them! I really wanted to have a few boxwood wreaths, too, just can't find any around to make them :( I'm still not ready to put up Christmas decor before Thanksgiving, although I'm dying to get started!

The fall look is so warm and inviting! And I've always loved book page wreaths as well. Just been too scared to try making one for myself! I've also been decorating with shutters lately, can't wait to decorate them for Christmas!

I love book page wreaths! Actually all paper wreaths :) Those look so great on your shutters (which are so versatile)! I have one shutter I finished that I had hanging in my porch and the mate which I never got around to painting. You really make me want to get started on that project!

Jamie @ Domestically Vintage said...

I love all the looks on the shutters! I need to change things up once in awhile on my living room shutters. They're blue shutters and I've always just had grapevine wreaths hanging on them. Stay warm! It's snowing here too in W. Michigan. ~ Jamie

Angie@Echoes of Laughter said...

Such gorgeous decorating as always Kathy! I hope you are well too! So sorry I haven't visited in so long. I am a full-time blogger now and I am so busy with sponsored posts and deadlines that I hardly have to time to read blogs anymore unless I ignore my family completely! How is your gorgeous little grandbaby? Have a wonderful week! Angie xoxo
