Book Page Christmas Tree

I love old books so have been trying to find lots of ways to use them. For fall, I posted how I made a book page pumpkin. This time, it's a Christmas tree! 


Here is what you need for this project:

Old book
Small pot
Bamboo skewer
Floral foam
Floral moss
Hot glue gun

1. Tear off the cover of the book. 
2. Cut your pages in various sizes of squares. You will want several more of the largest size square. 
3. Find a small pot, or I found these cute galvanized tubs at a yard sale.  
4. Place a piece of floral foam in the bottom of your pot so it fits snug.
5. Cover the top of the foam with floral moss, hot gluing it around the inside edge of the pot.
6. Place your skewer in the foam and start poking your book pages onto it starting with the larger pieces first.  
7. Add a little something to the top of your tree and that's it! 

Mine turned out to be about a foot tall.
