Book Page Tribal Arrow Garland

Is it cold where you live? It has been freezing here the last couple of days. To me, that is the perfect weather to be cozy inside and create something pretty.
And, it's definitely no secret that I love book page crafts and making garlands. I also love the tribal trend in home décor.  (Remember my dream catcher I made here?) So, I decided to make this easy book page tribal arrow garland. Seriously simple!

Here's what you need: a vintage book that has both print pages and colorful picture pages, an arrow pattern (search on Google or create your own), a pencil, scissors, hole punch and embroidery floss in your choice of color.
Simply, trace your arrow template onto the book pages and cut them out (I do several pages at once). Make sure you have a good mix of the print and pictures. Stack them up and punch two holes at the top of the arrows and string them together.
This may very well be my favorite garland ever!

I have a super busy day today, but before I head off I wanted to share a couple of exciting things with you all. First off, last night I teamed up with One Kings Lane to introduce you all to their Décor Resource Center. If you haven't checked it out please do so, it is filled with wonderful information about vintage furniture.
And second...Oh My Gosh! I am going to be a contributor at Jennifer Rizzo's blog! I'll be sharing monthly over there and I am so thrilled because Jen's blog has been a fav of mine long before I even thought of starting Number Fifty-Three.
Thank you all so much for continuing on this journey with me!
