Upcycled Crafts: Geek Tree

May 18, 2014 at 9:14 pm Leave a comment

As many of you that frequent the store know, we have a resident pole tree that we decorate for every season. The pole tree (actually a concrete pole) is decorated to look like a tree using old paper bags and coat hangers. It’s currently geeked out in honor of Austin Public Library’s Geek the Library campaign, which helps to raise awareness about the library, and how it can provide you with resources and information about what ever you “geek” or love to learn about.

At first, we set up a white board and had people write in what they geek. That didn’t take very long to get filled up, so we transferred over each geek onto a piece of poster paper. Betsy then hung up all the pieces of paper on the tree, securing it with a bit of plarn or plastic yarn. So be sure to come in and let us know what you geek so we can add it to the tree!
