Inspired by the title of the beautiful teal book, I decorated the cover for this book planter, in a pattern that dates back to early 1800 BC. Chevron! With the book falling apart, I used the rescued pages to intricately cut the pattern from. Since all three books were minus artwork, I lined the Easy Plant hole with an image (rescued from another upcycled book) featuring a charming couple. I trimmed the hole in gold adding metallic white pedal shapes. Finishing it up, I marked the last pages read with a signature Upbound tassel. Makes for the perfect succulent centerpiece or tabletop accessory.
