How To Decorate a Bookshelf Using Old Vintage Books

Introduction:

If you have an old book lying around and you no longer need it, then why not make it into a beautiful decoration! This creative idea was taken from a library and would be nice to share on the website. If you want to try this activity out, it’s best to use a thick book with a soft spine. You may also use books with fewer pages, but it may not just look like the sample project and would look more like a semicircle-shaped decor.
