17 Creative  Home Decor  Inspos Bookworms  Will Go Crazy  for ...

I love books. Reading is my favorite thing. It's an escape. Books are magical. They let you experience worlds and cultures and adventures you never even imagined. As much as I hate sacrificing books, even when they're old and dog-eared, I love them so much that I adore decorating with them, too. Being surrounded by books, by words and sentences and prose … it makes me feel peaceful, protected, and at ease. Maybe these projects will make you feel the same way.

1 Book Page Flowers

Book Page Flowers How to do it: oncarstyles.com

These are lovely! You could make such a wonderful little book nook or accent piece. Best advice? Use damaged books. I have a bunch that I've either dropped in the bathtub or left within the reach of a dog.

2 Book Purse DIY
