I was in Columbia, TN this week wandering around their downtown and wandered my way into a bookstore. Funny how that happens! What drew me in was this beautiful Christmas book tree in the window of the store. (I’ll be honest, the books did too!)
I took a picture and turned to the guy at the counter and asked him how many books it took to make this tree. He said “I dunno.” Very disappointing answer! I can’t imagine I’m the first person to walk into the store and ask that question. Anyway, I took a picture and marveled at how high it stood, wondering if I had enough books at home to make one. I probably do, but it would leave my bookshelves absolutely empty! As well as the thought of putting all of those books back on the shelves persuaded me to not build a tree quite that large.
I went home and started googling Christmas Book Tree’s and found that it doesn’t really matter the size. Here are some of my favorite’s.
I kind of want the big round room to put this one in, too! How fabulous!
Here is a little desktop tree. I love the look of it, but I’m cringing at bending all of those bindings! I love the size though!
I love this idea because you don’t need a big room. Just a wall to stack your books against and a little festive garland!
Then you have your color coordinated books mini tree. It sits nicely on an end table and has a star on top. Love, Love, Love! I’m positive I can do this one!
Off I go to create my little book tree. Have any of you created a book tree? Care to share how big, or what you picked for your theme? Did you stack? Create a circle?
I hope your holiday season is happy, festive and bright!
postnote: I was inspired to create my own mini tree. What do you think?
