Book Club or Craft Club kids choose one of the books that may have some interest to them (ie they like the subject or pictures) and we spray paint the outside black, then later cover (glue) it with sticks, beads, rocks or ???... Let them design their own... swirl yarn on it? fabric?

You can cut out (hollow out) a section large enough to glue in something 3D.  It can turn into quite a treasure. The pictures they like can still show, but cover up most of the text that is not of interest to them.   ---you get the idea...
