Christmas Book Tree of Knowledge

"A room without books is like a body without a sole."

~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

Have you ever seen a book tree before? I had not! I am going to call them "The Tree of Knowledge"! I first discovered these cuties on Pinterest and with a little creativity, I designed my first "Tree of Knowledge"! Such a super simple DIY project for any room. All you need are books and a topping! Any Christmas ornament will do!

And if you don't have the books, you can most likely find them at your local thrift or consignment shop for .25 cents to $1.00 a piece.

I think it's absolutely adorable! And you can design yours any way you want to. Just stack your books on top of each other, large to small, that's it! Just like it looks in the picture!

Here is the same tree with a star ornament on top.


I used 15 books on top and 7 small vintage books on the bottom.
