7 DIY Ideas for Book Lovers

DIY Pinterest Decor Ideas for Book Lovers
"A room without books is like a body without a soul."

Because I will be moving into an apartment or dorm next year for grad school, I have been searching diy home decor on Pinterest. I LOVE Pinterest! There are so many great ideas on there and I know that I've used it in my articles before, but it's just so great I can't help it (haha)! Because I want to be a librarian, I've been looking for diy home decor for book lovers. So if you love books as much as I do, I hope that you will have fun looking through the awesome home decor ideas that I've found. I hope you have fun reading through my ideas and find a craft that you want to make for your own home or apartment. Thanks for reading everyone!

7 DIY Home Decor ideas For Book Lovers:

1. The Doormat

This one is easy and so cool! If you get a cheap doormat from Target or Walmart and some paint and you are ready to go! It doesn't have to be a Harry Potter mat, you can use whatever book phrase you want. Just have fun with it!

2. Displaying Maps from Books

I really like this one! You can get some canvas from Michaels, print the maps onto them and paint the borders if you want like they did above. Or you can just print out the maps and frame them (I think that's what I'm going to do)! You can use maps from your favorite books. I think I'm going to use the maps from Game of Thrones!

3. Your Favorite Book Quote

This one is really simple but I think it is such a great idea! You can get cheap letters from the Dollar store or just cut them out of construction paper! I love the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but I think I am going to have to do a quote from The Great Gatsby or To Kill a Mockingbird. There are so many great books to choose from so have fun with it!

4. Framed Bookshelves

This isn't necessarily a book themed craft but I love this idea! If you don't have a lot of room and don't really feel like paying a ton of money on a big bookshelf, this is the craft for you! I love the uniqueness of putting mis-matched frames on the front of wooden box shelves! This could be really fun!

5. The Book Spine Lamp

I know this isn't a craft but I think you can easily make your own version of this lamp! I love the idea of finding a unique lamp that you like and buying a plain white lamp shade. Then you can use Sharpie paint markers or even fabric markers to draw or paint the spines of your favorite books on the shade! This can be super cool!

6. Bookish Cross Stitch Patterns

Something I've wanted to learn how to do for awhile now is cross stitch. I LOVE cross stitch patterns and I have a couple of them hanging in my apartment right now. The image above is a quote from Where the Wild Things Are. I think this could be really fun to do (if you know how or are interested in learning)!

7. Book Wreath

Okay I LOVE this idea! I am not one for damaging books by ANY means (haha) but I think you could do this with old newspapers or even photocopy pages of your favorite books? Totally up to you! But if you are looking for something to spruce up your front door, this is the craft for you!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
