I saw a picture of a candle holder covered in old book pages a couple weeks ago, I knew I had to try. It looked so cool! I've been collecting old books in hopes of having time to actually sit down and be crafty.
I thought you guys would be interested in seeing the final product and how I did it, too.
I plan on making several vases or candle holders, using a bunch of old books, but the first one I used was Twilight.
For this project, you'll need
*A clean glass vase, jar or candle holder
*Modge Podge (or decopage glue), a paint brush or sponge brush (I used a sponge brush)
And here is the final version:
The picture I saw has the vase covered completely with pages, pictures and quotes, but that was just too busy for me, but its always a suggestion. I wanted to highlight quotes that I thought were important to the book, rather than just pages.
If you have any bookish craft ideas, I'd love to feature them! Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know!
