Paperback novels from the 1970's (picked up for $0.25 each at my library) are finally getting another glance after all these years.
You will need 4 books and a square glass vase that matches the dimensions of the paperbacks you are using (I got this vase for about $4.00 at IKEA).
I also used extra wide artists tape – available at craft and art supply stores. I love this tape because it holds tightly and comes off fairly easily.
Attach books to vase with tape.
I had extra books so, I placed them around the finished piece to create more visual interest.
I want centerpieces that strike up conversation. In the case of this arrangement, some of the books are so ridiculous I am betting that the jokes will fly at dinner. I also like the idea of having extra books that can be handled, read out loud and mocked pretty easily.
The covers alone are easy to laugh at.
