Day 14: Flooded Basement (Book Pages) – Good morning Bookwyrms!! For this photo prompt I decided to reuse a paperback copy of Divergent and turn it into a pumpkin! I this was my first time turning a book into a pumpkin or anything for that matter! The stem is made from the book’s spine. I kept the front and back covers for possible use in the future. I do recommend if u want to make your own book pumpkin or tree find a smaller book with less than 400 pages!! All in all, I love how great this project turned out! Have you ever reused an old book for a craft project or any other interesting use?
