Today, it saddens me to say that bound books are a dying breed. Everybody has tablets. Challenging copies and books in-print are being purchased much less and less. For most of us, there is anything magical about holding a book in our hands: the beautiful exterior, the weight of the paper, and the printed text. Because books are becoming less typical, the ones we do buy are for the design and style as significantly as reading pleasure. You do not just get it to read it or you would have accomplished so on your tablet, so it has to look great on your bookshelf or on the coffee table too. Old books also are quickly becoming a nostalgic staple in home décor. As the book becomes less and less common, it will grow to be more and more intriguing as a design function for your house. That’s why these days’s post is committed to upcycling books!
Book Web page Paper Wreath
Nothing says “welcome” like a wreath on your door. A wreath immediately warms up your exterior and is an easy DIY. If you make your wreath out of book pages, it promises to be in style all year long. If you do not have an old book you want to repurpose, check out a thrift shop and they will have a lot.
This beautiful wreath by Sunny Tuesday can look excellent any time of year! Basically alter out the bow for a new season. All you need to have for this wreath is scissors, a hot glue gun, a book, and a wreath kind. [DIY from Sunny Tuesday]
The wreath is created of these little “pom poms.” You will be amazed by how straightforward they are to make!
In this subsequent 1, the book pages are folded and hole punched, then strung up on a wire frame. If your books pages are not naturally aged, you can get the look using tea to stain your pages, or even a matchstick if you’re brave. [DIY from Knick of Time Interiors]
This DIY is so cute and would appear excellent on your finish table, bookshelf, or coffee table. The book planter is excellent for succulents and cacti (plants that do not require much soil). This planter is also a wedding decor favourite. [DIY from Hastudia]

You can very easily turn a book into a piece of art for your residence with just an exacto knife, glue, and sewing pins. These gorgeous books serve as frames, and the pages are transformed into art. To make one, merely use your exacto knife to cut a rectangle out of each and every page of your book. (Make a template so that you can be sure every single page is cut precisely the exact same.) Then, glue the pages with each other with a glue stick. Use your scrap pages to cut out a silhouette like the butterflies beneath. Use pins to show them in your book. Ultimately, you’ve got yourself a stunning artwork! [from Hokey Stokes]
You can also use your book to show found pieces like the instance below.
