Xmas Book Tree

Feeling a bit Grinch-y because you didn't make it to the store for a Christmas tree? Fear not - here's how to make one from your beloved book collection!

Dusting off your favourite books to make a tree not only saves you from stuffing a giant tree into your car/buying a gaudy plastic thing destined to become landfill - it’s totally FREE!

Then, come January, you can just put all the books back - and decide which ones to revisit on your hammock during summer.

You can build a giant book tree by building a wide circle and piling up into a narrow tip…
