Naughty and Nice List - A Recycled Christmas Book DIY

So do you think you are going to make the 'Naughty' or 'Nice' list this year? Why not make both. Today for I Love to Create we are crafting a list and checking it twice.

SUPPLIES

Tulip Fashion Glitter Shimmer Transfer Shapes

Aleene's Tacky Glue Stick

Crafty Chica Paint - red and green

Old Books

First paint your books, one red and one green. You will need two or three coats of paint. Don't worry no books were harmed in the making of this project, you could still read them if you wanted.

Spell out the words 'naughty' and 'nice' in Fashion Glitter Shimmer Transfer Shapes. They are intended to be ironed on clothing, but they also glue to other surfaces like books perfectly.

When your books are finished set them out on the shelves to display.

I love the way the books turned out, I might go back and add some cute graphics to the front. I'll keep you posted!

  1. Whoa... I think it naughty to paint the adorable covers of old books. Nice would have been a paper grocery sack book cover, painted red and green, lettered, then after Christmas, repurposed again. And again. And again.

  2. Altering books can be as simple or as complicated as one wants to make it. I think this is a great idea.
