Feature Friday- Holiday Book Decorations
I am in the midst of several projects right now, and none of them are complete. So I thought I would show you a little project that I put together in order to use up some of my vast collection of knicky-knacks that I pick up at the Dollar Store. I created two unique “book decorations” for my study book shelf that use only dollar store items and an old book. Check it out…
For this project I used:
One old hardcover book
Various small items from the Dollar Store
Begin by wrapping a length of wired ribbon around the width of the book, hot gluing it tightly around it.
Do the same for the length of the book, hot glueing your ends together on the bottom side of the book.
Use a separate length of wired ribbon to create a bow. The nice thing about wired ribbon is that it allows you to shape it. Which totally comes in handy when you aren’t the best at making bows, like me. But a bit of fluff and fuss and the bow looks great.
Position your ribbons where you want them and then glue the bow down on top.
Here, I’m doing the same for a fall themed book.
Then the fun part is just glueing your dollar store items down! I had a hard time editing because I really had so much junk to choose from, but finally I chose a tiny doll house dresser and a cute bear and some greenery to complete my Christmas theme book.
My fall theme book has a little wooden birdhouse and gourds and pumpkins and leaves. It will look cute on my bookshelf with my little scarecrow.
Stay tuned for next week when I will show you all the projects that I hopefully will complete by this weekend. I am busy as a bee here at chez Sitcom and have lots of Christmassy ideas, lots of home decor and fresh content coming your way. Stay tuned!————————————————————- If you enjoyed this tutorial, please check out my Paintbrush Santa Tutorial.
