Here’s what you need to make a Dollar Tree Book Stack:
- Hardcover Books, Three – Dollar Tree
- Silk Flowers, White – Dollar Tree
- Natural Twine – Dollar Tree
- Americana Acrylic Paint by DecoArt – White, Ivory, Light Grey
- Alphabet Stamps – Upper and Lower Case
- Ink Pad, Black
- Wire Cutters
Here’s how to create Stamped Home Decor:
To begin the How to DIY Book Stack with Dollar Tree Supplies, gather all supplies. I selected three books that were similar in size and all had dark covers. Remove the paper dust covers and base coat the canvas covers of the books with a mixture of white and ivory craft paint. Don’t over mix the colors and let the base coat be rough. I like that the dark base is visible through the paint. Set aside to dry.
Dry brush light grey paint around the sides and edges of the books, in places that wear, would naturally occur. Set aside to dry.
Using both the upper- and lower-case alphabet stamps, select the message HOME SWEET HOME. Place the spine of the books up, tap each letter stamp in the ink pad and stamp on the spine. The irregularity of the stamped letters gives the project farmhouse charm. CHANGE IT UP: If you don’t have alphabet stamps use letter stickers or even hand-letter your message of choice.
Stack the books together and wrap with twine 10 to 12 times, securing the end with a knot and leaving the tails long. To create a bow, wrap the twine around your hand 10 to 12 times, trim the end with scissors, and place in the center of the book stack. Secure in place by knotting the tails around the bow.
To finish the How to DIY Book Stack with Dollar Tree Supplies, snip off a section of a small silk flower bunch with wire cutters and tuck into the bow.
