Living with Lindsay has a tutorial on making a wreath from book pages.
Before you can say, "sacrilege!", this is actually a great way to recycle damaged books, and it's perfect decor for someone who loves books.
Here's another one (using the same tutorial), made by
Get Your Martha On.
It seems to me it might be cute to turn this into a "wish" wreath, or an advent wreath, and slip tiny notes and/or toys inside some of the cones.
Maybe add a touch of glitter...
Lots of possibilities, especially if you take into account the theme of the book used.
