DIY Book Page Pumpkins on October 4, 2017 These Book Page Pumpkins make beautiful Fall decorations around your home. Paint the edges and add a colorful bow to finish them off. Make some extra for friends! This is a fun and simply way to recycle unwanted books. If you have a lot of unwanted books you can make several and give them away to friends and family. I have always told my daughter there is nothing she can buy that is more memorable than anything she can make! Just grab an old book and trace out a pumpkin shape, then cut out the pages with an exacto knife. After you have cut out all the pages, place a twig or cinnamon stick in the center of the spine for the “twig”. Hot glue the spine together, twig and all. I had to touch it up a bit and glue a few other pages together to get it to form a pumpkin shape. Paint the ends if you prefer and tie a ribbon around the twig to finish it off. I used a book that had 500 pages. I would not recommend using a book that thick. I had to rip out many pages afterwards to get it to form into a pumpkin shape.
