One thing we are putting on our tree are small bookpage wreaths and cones made out of old unwanted books. These are SUPER simple and can be decorated in soooo many ways.
First, tear a page out of your book and decide how big you want your cones to be in the end. If you want small cones just cut your paper in half or even quarters for tiny cones. Then just take your cone like I have below and twist it into your desired shape and then glue or hot glue the edge.
Once your cones are made you can use any shape of thick cardboard as a backer for your wreath. I cut a 3 inch circle out of poster board and put a dot in the center of the circle for my mini wreaths. This is the time to glue a ribbon hanger between your backer and the cones to make everything seamless!
I then started placing cones on the circle at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock and then fill in so everything stays fairly even. After you have your first layer you can glue on another layer of smaller cones or decorate it however you want!!
Here is the finished product
I used the back cover of the book for my rectangle wreath's base instead of cutting one out of poster board.
