Book Page Table-Runner:

Step One: Find an old book that you don’t mind destroying for a good cause. You may have one that has been partially damaged that would serve this purpose well. Or find a used book at a thrift store for less than a dollar.

Step Two: Tear the pages out of the book.  When it comes to breaking the binding it will make a difference if the pages are glued or sewn.  The book I used had a glued binding.  I started by breaking the binding back on the edge of a table and tearing the paperback cover off.  From there I simply ripped away pages.  For the length of my table runner I only used half of a 250 page book.

Step Three: Glue! It is best to use a glue stick that will dry faster rather than a glue bottle and won’t make as much of a mess. Begin gluing the pages together at angles. There is no particular method to which way you should glue pages together.  Make it as long or wide as you like!

Step Four: Display your work of art. Once your book page table runner is completely dry, display it on your table, top it with book club-friendly snacks and enjoy!
