Make your own farmhouse style stacked books decor for around $3 or less! This craft uses supplies from the dollar store and you could even make these and sell them!
I LOVE modern farmhouse style decor. My wallet doesn’t love it as much so a DIY farmhouse decor as often as possible! You know that about me though because you’ve likely seen my $5 no sew farmhouse style curtains or my dollar store farmhouse signs DIY. This dollar store book stack project cost me $3, but if you have the books laying around then it would be just pennies to make!

These modern farmhouse style books are the perfect complement to your decor. Display them on an end table or mantle for the perfect addition to your farmhouse decor! I’ll show you how to make your own stacked books decor on a dime! No need to spend a lot of money in order to achieve a magazine-worthy look!
How To Make Stacked Books Decor
You’ll need a few basic supplies to make your own stacked books set.
- 3 softcover books (I got them for $1 each at Dollar Tree – Goodwill is also a good source)
- white chalk paint
- foam paintbrush
- vinyl letters cut out with your Cricut or letter stickers or you can hand paint the words
- free Design Space file for book words
Begin by ripping the cover carefully off the book. It should come off in one piece and leave the front, back and binding of the book exposed.
Then, paint the binding of the book with white chalk paint using a foam paintbrush. Repeat this for each book. Allow to fully dry.
Once the paint is dried, stack the three books on top of each other. Wrap the jute around the books several times and then tie it in a bow.
Then, cut out the words “Home Sweet Home” with your Cricut. You can obtain the free Design Space file here. Feel free to change the words and just size them correctly. The great thing about this project is that you can even use scrap sizes of vinyl because it doesn’t use much! I used permanent vinyl on mine.
Then use transfer tape to apply the letters to the spine of the books so they look like the photo above. That’s it! It’s a quick and easy craft and would likely sell well at craft fairs too!
Decorate your living room or bedroom with these gorgeous stacked books! Add a farmhouse wood bead garland to the top for an extra touch of farmhouse decor.
