DIY Book Page Trees

Good morning! I hope y’all had a great weekend! I’m excited to share my DIY Book Page Trees today. I did this project before we moved and I’m just now having a chance to post it. I love the graphic, neutral softness of the book pages paired with a little bling from trim and a red jingle bell. These book page trees are perfect decor for the holiday season!

I think they turned out so pretty and elegant. The book page trees are quite easy to make, so here’s a quick tutorial for you!

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • Foam Cones {or make some out of cardboard or posterboard}
  • A Book that you don’t mind cutting up
  • Pen, Scissors
  • Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
  • Something round to use for a pattern {the bowl I used was 4.5″ in diameter}
  • Bling – trim, jingle bells etc.

Trace around the outside of your pattern. Tear out several pages at a time and cut out the circles. You’re going to need a lot of circles, so just keep tracing and cutting. :)

For each circle:  Cut  |  Fold in half  | Fold in half again

To create a flat line at the bottom of each cone. Cut several folded circles straight from corner to corner. Hot glue the flat edge of the paper triangles to the bottom of each cone…overlapping as you go.

To cover the top, open up a paper circle and hot glue it down over the top of the cone.

Finish the book page trees by layering and overlapping the folded paper pieces all the way from bottom to top. Add trim and call it a day!

That’s all there is to creating DIY Book Page Trees. I love easy projects that make my house look festive this time of year! :)

Have you started crafting and decorating for Christmas yet? We’re going to my Memaw’s for Thanksgiving, so I just pulled out my Christmas boxes to begin thinking about decorating.
