As the weather warms up and we all emerge from winter hibernation, we want to spend more time outside in the fresh air. For book lovers, taking our books to the “great outdoors” doesn’t have to mean just going outside with a book in hand. We can bring our love of books out with us, so we feel just as comfortable as being wrapped in a blanket in a room surrounded by our beloved books.
1. Book Rocks
If you have a garden or some sort of path, you could paint rocks and put your favorite book quotes or titles on them.
If you have a garden, it might be fun to have a rock with a quote from The Secret Garden, when Mary asks, “Might I have a bit of earth?” How cute would that be?
2. Book Planters
If you find books that you don’t mind cutting up and getting dirty, you could make book planters. If you have more of a brown thumb than a green one, like me, you could put succulents in the book planter to help avoid killing them.
3. Fictional Location Post
Your yard could be the crossroads between all the fictional worlds you know and love with this creative sign. And the best part is that you can use wood scraps, and it’s okay if they are not the same size or perfectly cut.
4. Peter Rabbit Scarecrow
Especially if you have a vegetable garden, this Peter Rabbit scarecrow would be a fun, cute outdoor decoration.
5. Book Bricks
You can use brick to surround paths or decorate your garden space and still show off your affinity for books. These examples of painted bricks look so cool and realistic!
Of course, you could simply take a book outside and lounge while you read. Sway in a hammock in the warm breeze, hear birds sing, and feel the warm sun for the first time in months while you enjoy a an amazing story. Life can’t get any better than that, can it?
How do you bring your love of books outside?
