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!
