A Bookish Wreath [Crafts]

So some of my bestest buds and I were out garage sailing a few weekends ago and we happened upon a very very cool craft idea.  Well, at least we thought it was.

This lady had taken a book that was falling apart and made a wreath out of it.

All in all, I thought it was worthy of a picture and a blog post, but had left my cameraphone in the car, so my friend snapped one for me (which is quite an impressive picture - lighting, composure, saturation, etc - for an iPhone pic, dontcha think?  Thanks, T)

I could see this being super fun with a collection of Poe's poems for Halloween... or A Christmas Carol for Christmas... or Shakespearean sonnets for Valentine's.  Fun potential, right?

Tell us your thoughts, do you heart the bookish wreath?  Or think it's a visual trainwreck?

I like the idea, but it doesn't truly look like a wreath. Maybe smaller pages...
