14 DIY Book Stack Variations – Home and Garden


This roundup of tutorials is all about the humble book stack. Book stacks have been around for some time now and now you can find so many fun and creative variations.

I have included different ways to make book stacks, including one that uses wood and another that uses a box to create a faux book stack, that doesn’t even use books.

Book stacks can be made with inspirational quotes, words for the season such as Noel, Joy, and Faith or with family names, children’s names, etc. A stack of books with Grandchildren’s names on it is a great DIY gift for Grandparents.

Books can be made bright for the holiday season or rustic for farmhouse decor.

Book stacks have been a little controversial at times, with book lovers furious at crafters pulling books apart and painting covers. One thing to keep in mind when looking at books like these is generally saved from the landfill from thrift stores or yard sales. These book projects allow them to have a little longer on someone’s shelf.
