Top 10 Book Club DIYs

If you’re looking for a new activity with your friends, starting a book club is a good place to start. You will be exposed to great people, great food, great books – and even better, when it’s your turn to host you will have a great excuse to go all out with the décor. Of course, we aren’t suggesting you destroy any books for your crafting endeavours but if you have some books that could be sacrificed, these projects are for you!

Books can also make really great centrepieces. You can add simple décor items (such as teacups or flowers) with one book or grab a bunch of books and stack them together!
