Dressing Up a Stack of Books ~

DIY | Holiday Project Inspiration

I love books - old books, new books, stacking books. So I decided to dress up these guys for the holidays. 

I simply started with a few pieces of sheet music (yes, I still am using the 2 books I purchased from Goodwill forever ago) and a little glitter.

I rolled up the sheet music and added some glitter to the edges.

I then printed and cut out "i believe", added a bow and some jewels and placed it on my stack of books.
Super easy and quick. You could use any paper and ribbon you had on hand. 

Just a fun way to dress up a little corner of your home.

I have to say that I am sincerely admiring your oh-so-classy christmas decor.

So much is either same-old or way over the top, but I find your decorations have the balance, are unique and a pleasure to look at.


I just wrote an article on my blog on the 10 holiday decorating mistakes to avoid, so I guess my eye is a bit more trained/critical than usual.

Anyhow, I enjoy your blog and happy holidays.

I like your idea to keeping napkins for the reception table. Rolling up is very unique idea, well, using colourful ribbons will looks attractive.
