Sometimes a book will be read so many times that its cover starts to tatter and the pages fall out.
Instead of throwing it away, you can transform it into something else! Here you’ll learn some crafty ways to take apart an unwanted book and make it into something useful.
1. Make a Wreath: By rolling, cutting, folding or crumbling the pages of books, you can arrange them into a wreath that’s good for any occasion. Then you can add any personal touches you want, such as ribbon, berries, or a photograph. Check out this awesome tutotial on The Shabby Creek Cottage.
5. Make Beads: Cut up pages and sting them together to make all sorts of jewelry. Maybe use creative hole punchers to create lovely shapes. The Smallest Forest has some great photos of how to do this.
