This entry was crafted by Kimberly Sneed, the creative lady behind A Night Owl blog.

Sneed: "Wreaths are a great way to update your home decor with little effort, and in this case, little cost! Months ago, I came across a lovely wreath made out of book pages like this, so when I received the phone book prompt for the Earth911 challenge, I knew I wanted to give the wreath a try with phone book pages! I really love how the wreath turned out and how something so cute can be made out of an everyday item we might just throw away!"
