Tiny Space Upcycled Book Christmas Tree DIY

This was a fun little project that I made a few years ago, with an old book. some gum wrappers, match boxes, a little bit of wire and some green paint.
Start with an old hard bound book that is 2 inches thick.
Remove the cover.
Trace a half tree shape on the first page and cut shape on all pages.
Paint the edges of the pages.
Make Christmas tree balls with colored gum wrappers and wire.
Make star topper with more gum wrappers and small stick. Wrap match boxes with more gum wrappers for gift boxes.

    There was a phone book left on my porch the other day that I didn't have the heart to throw in the recycle bin. It will be perfect for this project! Thanks for sharing!
