(Another) Bookish Christmas Tree for 2014

Hello, friends!!! Between the busyness of this season and the wonder of celebrating Christ’s birth this Christmas, my posts will continue to be sporadic. With that said, I want to share my recent bookish project: a book Christmas tree!!! It makes my bookshelves all festive.

You might remember the little stack of green books from last year I set up as a small book Christmas tree. This year, I decided to make one slightly bigger. Who knows, next year I might go all out and stack a life-sized one on the floor! (Lookout, world! This could prove challenging if any munchkin family members visit for the holidays…..we’ll see)

This was super easy to make. All you need is a small space to stack, a variety of sizes of books (They don’t even have to be green!), and a small-ish string of lights! I used a small table as a base, but I’ve seen some on Pinterest using cake stands. Just begin by arranging larger, sturdy books at the bottom (started with 4 hardbacks), then add slightly smaller groups of 3-4 as it grows.

Have you ever made a tree using books? Or any other book “sculptures”? Please share your craftiness in the comments! I’ve love to know!

  1. That is so awesome! I love decorating for Christmas and everything about Christmas spirit! I love your book tree, and I’ll have to make my own book tree someday!

  2. Courtney, I love your book tree. Have you read the books you use? I think that would make it even more special, to make the tree out of some of the favorite books you’ve read that year.

    • Thank you, Pat! I have read several of them. Some of them are quote collections/reference books, so I haven’t exactly read “all” of those. Thanks for dropping by and commenting! Merry Christmas!

  3. I love it!!! This is too awesome, Courtney. Very impressed! I haven’t tried this, but I’d sure like to. Perhaps I’ll get the urge before Christmas arrives! 🙂 As for any other bookish sculpture, the closest I’ve ever gotten is simply having my books everywhere in my house. And I do mean everywhere! I think every single available spot has at least one book on it. 😀

    • Kara, your comment makes me smile! Maybe you’ll decide to stack the books everywhere in a tree-like shape 🙂 Seriously though, I know how you feel. Books everywhere is so fun!
