Literary Stalagmites? What are those, and why do I want them in my house?

The idea is to create some unique wall art on the cheap. In essence, this instructable is a fancy way to nail pop-up books to your walls and ceiling. It's fairly self-explanatory, but there are some good tips that will save you time and money. Let's get to it!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
Most of the required tools you'll already have around the house. New pop-up books are always pricey due to manufacturing costs, but, if you're willing to buy them used, you can get a bunch pretty cheaply. I bought all mine used for only a few dollars on Amazon.

Required:
1. Assorted Pop-Up Books
2. Hammer & Nails
3. string, duct tape, or anything that can hold the pages together
4. scissors

Optional:
1. Eyelet Pliers  (The link is merely an example; I don't particularly recommend this brand or model. Actually, I recommend you don't buy this one because it broke on me halfway through the project.)
