Build your Christmas tree with books



Inspired by our #Words4Wine campaign? You too can build your own bookworm Christmas Tree with books!

Just follow a few easy steps!

  • Locate dozens of books. If you want to do this in a really nice way, you’ll need to find books that not only have meaning, but also come in a variety of shapes and sizes in order to create a real tree look.
  • Choose the lights for the bookworm Christmas tree. For this purpose, bigger bulbs are best, so that they’re not swamped by all the books. Even an old-school outdoor light set won’t be pushing things too far.
  • Decide where to place the bookworm tree. As with the standard Christmas tree, a corner of the room where you’ll be holding all the celebrations is the best choice for setting up the bookworm Christmas tree. Make sure the floor is even and non-slippery.
  • Create the base of the bookworm tree. Begin with the largest, heaviest books and create a circle on the spot set aside for the bookworm tree. Use as many books as possible to create a solid base.
  • Add the next layer. The trick to creating the “tree-like” formation of the bookworm tree is to align the books so that they have their spines facing outward with their spine edges jutting out.
  • As you near the top of the bookworm Christmas tree, the books may benefit from being placed one on top of the other, discontinuing the circles. A few heavier, larger books can be aligned at the top to finish off the look.
  • Add the lights. There are three approaches to adding the lights:
    • Feed the lights in as you build the tree.
    • Wrap the lights around the finished bookworm Christmas tree.
    • Make sure that the light bulbs all face outward.
  • Finish the top of the tree. This part is totally up to your imagination, but here are some ideas:
    • Place an upright book standing and slightly open.
    • Add a traditional tree-topper.
    • Use the tree top to hold a candy dish
