Hey! Are you a DIY-er and a book lover too?!? We have the perfect project for you: book art! It might surprise you – but it’s possible to make things out of books.
Before you recoil in complete shock, at the thought of destroying some of your favorite books to do DIY’s projects with, realize just how eco-friendly it is, to take some of your old books and make things from them. Yes, you can always recycle an old book – but if you adore books, then quite likely you would especially appreciate home decor or other fun items that you’ve created made from old books.
We’ve found you 40 simply brilliant book art project ideas. These make fun teacher Thank You gifts, or a lovely gift for your local librarian or an author you know. If you have a friend or family member who loves books or words, such as doing crossword puzzles – then a DIY project created from a dictionary would be special to make for them.
Some of these projects are ideal for beginners and others will appeal more to someone who is more experienced with DIY projects. But we are confident you will get great results.
So, let’s get started. Happy DIY-ing!
