Heart Wreath

What I should have done was made two wreath forms when I first started the book page wreath project.  That way, I would have been able to make  two pretty much identical wreaths and then I could have hung them on either side of the mirror in this bathroom. And they would have rocked.

But I didn't.  I did try measure the first wreath and duplicate it, but it was too hard to tell for sure after the flowers were glued on just how big it was and I didn't want them to be lopsided when you could see them both at the same time.

So what's a girl to do?  Do something completely different.  Okay, maybe not completely, I mean they're both book page wreaths, but the second one is heart-shaped so it can't be compared to the original round wreath.

I started with a super cheap frugal cardboard heart base (still need to find something to do with the centre heart piece).

Then I just crumpled up circles cut from book pages like in the round wreath.  Gold ribbon to match the other and that was it.

And here's a shot of both of the wreaths.  (Not a good shot, but a shot.  Please cut me some slack, there's no light in this room outside of the starburst above the mirror.)

In the end, I'm happy with the complimentary but not identical heart wreath.  Nobody but you will ever know.  :)

Symmetry is highly overrated, an attempt to outdo nature. Better not and so something real!

I never thought of it that way but I prefer your vision. It's less perfectionistic and much more creative. Thanks for stopping by.
