Remember Thanksgiving's Paper Cone Gratitude Wreath by Eddie Ross? We've recently stumbled upon more paper cone wreaths for Christmas, made of "found" papers for beautiful texture and little dose of something old in your holiday decor:

Simple Joys Paperie sells these upcycled creations on Etsy. A few of our favorites are pictured up top. The beauty of these wreaths is that they're filled with words from old books, giving them layers and layers of texture and content and meaning.

From the wreaths' creator: "I don’t destroy perfectly good books as a rule, and use books that are falling apart, have pages missing, or are damaged in one way or another.". We love this new breath of life given to old books that might otherwise be discarded. It's cool to bring something old and forgotten to the center of something as lively as holiday celebrations!
