Today’s official topic: Books With My Favorite Color On the Cover (or In the Title). Because 1. Green is my favorite color and 2. This is The Green Mockingbird blog, I picked GREEN! I couldn’t stop at just 10. And, I decided to limit myself to books I’ve read, otherwise you would see way more than 12 on my list!
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!
For today’s Fun Find Friday, I’m featuring my book Christmas tree. For the “find” portion- I found the two itty bitty green books on top at my local used book store. The tiniest one is an old Italian-English dictionary!
Have you ever made a tree entirely out of books? Please share!
