There are several videos that show how to make these trees, but this one is very thorough, especially when describing the various adhesives or paints you can use. I head to the library's used bookstore and buy paperbacks for 25 cents. Children's books are great for this, because they're usually about 150-200 pages.This is another project best done either while watching a great Christmas movie, or with a group of friends. Spiked hot cocoa is optional, but makes the folding a lot less tedious!
@Spudsomma Great idea~~ I'll look for those I know are at the end of their days :)
This is awesome--I'm also not usually one to cut up old books, but I think this is a really fun way to recycle, and make some cool decorations!
What a fun way to recycle books! I'd have to really talk myself into cutting up a book but the final product looks worth it!
@hikaymm, or use books you really wished you hand't bought:> I have a bracelet made of beads rolled from old book pages. They used Danielle Steele books!
Most of the books I use already were missing pages, so I didn't feel so bad:)
