Project Pinterest - Crimson Red Book Page Rosette Topiary


I finally made it to the store for the necessary items to finish my topiary!
...and here it is...

Book Page Rosette Topiary in Crimson Red - Feminine and Romantic Table Decoration - Upcycled Home Decor

I am very happy with how this turned out! 
If you want this topiary without the fuss of making it {and the headache of making multiple trips to multiple stores...or maybe that's just my luck} you can buy this exact one in my shop, Anthology On Main.

If you're feelin' crafty, however...read on!
I had some leftover pages/rosettes from last week's book page wreath project {which already sold!}, saw a pin of a gorgeous pink topiary and knew those little rosettes were headed towards their destiny. 

But, I didn't want to keep them cream...they needed color. 
They needed red...a deep, dark red.

Do you want to know how I got them red?
Spray paint.
;)

I used a glossy red and gave them two coats.
I found that with the second coat they took on more of a leathery look, but I didn't want to completely abandon the coarseness of the book pages, so I stopped at two.
Red leather rosettes?
Awesomeness.

  5. I love this topiary! Using spray paint was a great idea. I never realized how often spray paint came in handy until I moved to an apartment in the city and don't have any where to safely use it anymore! I can't wait to see your fabric wreath next week!
