Literary Leaves: Paper Branches

I was at West Elm a week or two ago buying a new rug, and I browsed through most of the holiday items on sale. There were some items left from the David Stark Collection, and I particularly liked the stems made from recycled book pages, but I thought it would be a simple enough project to make at home!

I wrapped wire in pages from a cat-chewed book using acrylic varnish for the stems, and ripped out leaf shapes and sandwich a looped wire in between. Looping the wire keeps it from sliding out!

Pin It!
