Still looking for more things to do with that collection of books? Well, stick with me and I'll never let you down! The above photo shows books hung by strings. This utilizes space in a completely new way. If you're one of those lucky enough to have your own library, this would be a great addition to an empty corner. This also applies for any corner!
In a children's room perhaps? So cute!
Not willing to ruin your books?
Try going to the local Good Will store and peruse their selection. It's likely you can pick up a few books for 25 cents, and you won't feel so guilty stabbing a drill through beloved stories.
What you need:
- Heavy duty cotton twine (Colorful ribbon works great, too!!!! Especially in a kids room! raid the sale bin at your local craft store.)
- A little hook to hang from ceiling.
- Drill with a bit long enough to go the depth of your longest book.
What to do:
- Take your book and center drill on cover. Drill (Slowly please. No need to burn down the house)
- Take your ribbon and tie a knot. Lace through hole you made (if you use a length of wire and fold it in half, you can use it as a needle, especially for thick ribbon) let the book rest on knot. You can make another knot on the other side of you like, it does look neat if ribbon was your choice.
- Repeat and hang on ceiling hook! Viola!!
