It’s official: Book themed Christmas decorations are a thing and if you’re not yet aware of that then you’re probably not on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, online… or reading this.
Thank heavens we ignored Marie Kondo and still have enough books left to create these wonderful decorations. Here are three of our favourite seasonal ideas for books.
Book Christmas Trees
Fake trees end up in landfill and real trees seem an awful waste given the state of our country at the moment. So DIY Christmas trees are all the rage. People everywhere are making their own trees out of books. Small or large, these trees are environmentally friendly and incredibly cool.
Ditch the cheap chocolate and make your own advent calendar out of books. This is perfect for children who end up with a new book each day, that they can read at bedtime that night. Some people wrap each book, we suggest the more sustainable option of either putting all the books in a box and having the kids treat it like a lucky dip, or hiding the books around the house, and turning it into a treasure hunt.
Love or Land Fill?
Countless books end up in landfill. Why not upcycle and make Christmas decorations out of old books instead. That way you can have years of use out of books that would otherwise collect dust or worse. Learn how to create some origami or paper mache decorations and hang them around the house for a gorgeous modern twist on Christmas decorations.
