Every year, I like to come up with something new and different to do when decorating for Christmas. This year I decided to try a Christmas tree forest, but a few years ago I created a tabletop Christmas tree made of books. It’s been pretty popular on Pinterest, so I thought I’d share it with my readers in case you missed it:
Decorating with books – one of my favorite things! So I had to attempt a Christmas centerpiece of a bookish nature. I started with a white cake stand and a big stack of books. A few decorations and a bag of mica snow later, this is what I came up with:
I used small porcelain figurines to decorate my book tree and topped it with a porcelain bird.
This photo was my inspiration. My decorator friend, Linda Holt of Linda Holt Interiors, posted it on my FaceBook wall and I KNEW I had to make a version of this!
I decided to do a tabletop version, although I feel quite sure I have enough books to put together one as large as the one above. The problem is floorspace – where would I put it?
Ahh, there’s always next year . . . By the way, there’s a lot of fun stuff that is shared via The Decorologist’s FaceBook page. Why not come over and “Like”?
