Honestly, I kind of cringed at the thought of doing this to a book but I guess if there is one or two that have been badly damaged beyond any real use I wouldn't mind so much to try this craft out. That and it would help if I could keep a plant alive longer than a week.
Check out the link below for instructions on how to create this nifty garden treasure.
Materials you will need:
A thick hardback book found at a thrift store, or a book that might otherwise be discarded
Circle hole cutting attachment for drill
2 pieces of wood that are larger than the hole you will cut
Succulent or cactus
Rocks (Patterson-Marx gets hers from the aquarium section in the pet store.)
Glue gun with extra glue sticks
Note: This process is very dusty and is best done outside or in a well-ventilated area.
