I think it’s officially spring wreath making time. Rather than go with the typical floral creation, I’m opting for something a little different. I’ve seen crafts on Pinterest using a color wash effect on book pages, which I really like. You get to keep the look of book pages but add a splash of muted color at the same time. So today I’m sharing how to make a color washed book page wreath.
Color washing the book pages to make the leaves was really easy to do.
I like the ones that have an aged tint to them even though they’re not old.
To color wash the pages, use watercolor paints. I used a blue-green color. Using long strokes, brush the paint onto the book pages. I wasn’t too concerned about uneven paint on the page because it adds to the dimension of the wreath.
The watercolor paint dries fairly quickly.
Color washing is a great way to add color to any book page craft.
