A Book Lover’s Christmas Tree

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”?

Great tree!!
I had those Bookshelf for Boys and Girls colored spine numbered books as a kid and Loved them!!! My parents got rid of them, but I gathered up separate ones on eBay a year or two ago to make a set for A & T.

That must be Some Series of green books from the Richard A. Gleeson library….

Very fun! I could do the same, but it wouldn’t probably smell dusty rather than fresh! haha
