A book is a terrible thing to waste, but what do you do with one that’s damaged? Upcycle it into festive decorations, of course! Use pages from any dilapidated book to create a length of beautiful paper chain. A traditional craft for the holiday season here in the Western world, paper chains are a way crafters of any age (or DIY skill level) can make their own decorations. You can even customize your chain with color, sparkles, or pictures! Paper chains are a fun, efficient way to make any space festive and magical.

Help is on the way in the form of this cozy fleece cowl that’s incredibly easy to make for yourself or to give as a gift. It’s such a simple design you can even make it with scraps! Here’s how.

Good thing it’s almost time for Thanksgiving, since we’ve eaten all the leftover Halloween candy and moved on to craving pumpkin and pecan pie! In between stuffing ourselves with our favorite side dishes, we like to give thanks. And something we here at Quirk are always thankful for are books. All the books. So we created a DIY printable in case your turkey is also a bookish one like ours.
