Note to bookclubbers—I haven’t forgot about you! The Antigone post is up today, courtesy of my darling friend, Michele. I’m hoping to add a short video introduction to Plato to that post later today! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Plato’s Republic. Don’t be scared. This is a good one. Start reading today, if you haven’t already.
Step 1: Paint your clay pots with your desired color. I found the colors “Cool Blue and Leafy Green” by DecoArt look the best once sanded. Painting does not have to be perfect since you will be sanding the pots down a bit once they are all dried.
Step 6: Start pushing the squares of book pages onto the skewer. Begin with the biggest squares at the bottom and continue moving up the skewer to the smallest squares at the top. As you are adding your book pages to the skewer it will begin to look like a tree!
