Hello, and welcome! I've decided to start working on some of my Christmas crafts, and since I've had some wonderful feedback on my other wooden stacked book craft, (If you would like to check that craft out, the link is below).
I thought I would work on a Christmas wood book stack craft. If you're ready, let's dive right in, and create your very own Christmas wood-stacked books creation.

-Gold letters (stickers)
Creating your books
Start by applying paint to your wooden box. The colors I went with were red and green. I wanted green in the middle, and red on the top, and bottom. Since this box has two openings on the side, don't worry about painting the sides of the box.
You will apply paint on the front of your box, and the top section. So for my box, the red section is on the front, and top of the box. Once you have applied your paint, set your box aside and allow it to dry.
I added some black paint where the creases on the front of the box are. I allowed it to fully dry, and then I went over it with a little bit of white paint. I wanted my books to have a bit of a shadow effect.
Once your box is completely dry, you can add on your gold letters.
Next, take your gold flowers, mini wreath, and hot glue.
Apply some hot glue on the back side of each gold flower, and add it to your mini wreath. You will do this until your mini wreath is covered with your gold flowers.
Take some twine, and cut just the amount needed to wrap around your book. I went ahead and cut two strands of twine, and tied a knot at the end of the two. Then I wrapped the two pieces of twine around the books and tied them off. Be sure to cut any excess twine off.
Next, take your mini wreath, and add it to the top section of your wooden books. For this, you will need some hot glue. Just apply a small amount on the top, and bottom of your wreath.
Take a small amount of twine, and add on some red bells. Loop the twine through the twine you had previously wrapped around your books. Then tie it off, and cut any remaining twine off.
Once you have added the finishing touches, you're all done! I hope that you have enjoyed this simple DIY project. If you have any questions please feel free, and let me know. I love hearing from all of you. Be sure to check out my DIY tutorials on YouTube, and other social media platforms. Until next time, I hope you all have a beautiful day!
