March is National Craft Month! As hard as it is to cut up old books, we guarantee you’ll be dying to after you see these bookish crafts.
Old Books As Planters
If you can stomach dissecting a beloved hardback, then this would be the perfect idea. Carve out the text and fill it with soil and succulents. Don’t forget to water it!
Find a line or two you love and mark out the rest. Try covering it with different art using paint markers, or cut out your favorite lines and make a collage.
Old Book New Box
Make a few hidden compartments and hide all your dice for DnD… is that not a common thing to hide? No? Forget I said anything.
Cottage Chic Mini Cabinet
Cover your littlest chest of drawers in your favorite pages and accent it all with the best baubles.
I’m going to make an entire library for my couch. These would be the perfect accent for any nook!
This would be perfect for holding a kindle, or organizing pens, or even as an actual clutch.
Pictures On Pages
Oh goodness, just imagine a library covered in framed book pages with gorgeous photos printed on them.
Felt Bookmarks FTW
I ruin my bookmarks regardless of material so it sounds like a good idea to make one that can take a beating.
Tick, Tock, It’s Read O’Clock
It’s always time to read and I can honestly say that I love me some naked books. Just think about the most beautiful spine hanging on your wall, reminding you it’s time to finish that chapter.
