  • After decking the halls, the tree, and even your bookshelves for the holidays, it hits you: what about the front door?! With holiday guests coming and going, you can easily welcome them (and yourself) home with a festive wreath made from (what else?) books! Check out this easy DIY project for a bookish winter.

  • Let’s just accept it: the bookshelf is the most important part of any room. And sadly, rarely do the shelves get any attention while we spruce up (sometimes literally) for the holidays. But not this year! Use these ideas to get started.

  • While evergreens are ever-traditional for the holiday season, booklovers with a little crafty know-how can build their own trees out of the one thing we all love: books! Caution: some of these designs call for painting or damaging books, so they’ll be ideal for those old paperbacks or that encyclopedia you’ve got boxed up in the attic.

    This sweet and salty treat may disappear moments after you set it out for your guests! For an edible party decoration, add a few drops of food coloring to the sugar syrup and then pile the popcorn in tall glass jars.

  • The ugly sweater: in our time there is no fonder tradition of the holiday season than donning some yarn-crafted atrocity meant to be fun and festive. And the book lovers of the world are not to be left out! This year, knit an ugly sweater for your favorite novel/ereader, your travel reading as you visit relatives, or as the best possible wrapping for a book you plan to give as a gift. Use this Quirk Books exclusive pattern to make your own!
