Greet your guests with upcycled decor made from old books and sisal rope. You'll need: vintage books with similar heights and widths; spool of 1-inch-thick sisal rope; utility knife; decorative ribbon; large letter stencils; pen; drill; 1/4-inch drill bit; scissors.
Use scissors to cut a separate spool of ribbon into a decorative link. Loop the link ribbon through the book ribbon, then knot it around the top of the rope. Place each book in its proper space according to the spelling of the word or phrase. Continue to attach each book with link ribbon.
