Bookish Thanksgiving Decor
This week is Thanksgiving, a holiday which never seems to get the due it deserves. More often than not, Thanksgiving is swept away in a wave of post-Halloween, pre-Christmas advertising that seems to start earlier and earlier each year. For what it’s worth, I really enjoy Thanksgiving. There’s good food, the weather is just chilly enough to feel cozy indoors, and it’s a reason to have some days off in the month of November. What’s not to love? Thanksgiving also comes with a great opportunity for crafty and interesting decor for when your guests come over. And no, I’m not talking about tracing your hand to make a turkey.
Recently, the folks over at Book Riot posted some bookish Thanksgiving decor, which I think is just awesome. If you happen to be of the crafty persuasion as well as the bookish persuasion, then some of these might be right up your alley. All of the crafts on this list do, however, entail destroying some books. So, if you don’t mind that sort of thing, these are some really cute ideas.
There is a centerpiece made from old books and some leaves, there is a Thanksgiving bunting made from old book pages, and there’s an adorable turkey place setting made from rolled up book pages! The turkey might be my favorite. But I’m also fond of the book pumpkin (pictured above), which involves a pumpkin being wrapped up in book pages. That’s such an interesting way to decorate a pumpkin and it lends a certain autumn-y mood to any room.
So, even though it’s short notice, I hope this post at Book Riot gives you some ideas for bookish Thanksgiving decor. Do you know of any bookish Christmas decorations? Share them in the comments!
