Look what I found at our local library! I love this! I think this would be such a fun craft to do with the kids. It would also make a beautiful Christmas decoration for your home, and a great conversation piece. Here’s my idea for making this centerpiece, even if you don’t have a ton of green books sitting around:

You’ll Need

  • Books of varying sizes (about 12)
  • Green wrapping paper or tissue paper
  • Tape
  • Red poinsettia flower for the top

  • Here’s the small version, where you unfold books with green covers
  • Or, if you don’t have an unlimited supply of green books…wrap books in green wrapping paper 😉

  • And, if you’re feeling really ambitious, stack a ton of books in circles layering them in smaller circles as you go up to the tippy-top of your book tree! 
  • How cool would this be in a room of your house? Start hitting garage sales this summer! 

Merry Christmas!
