DIY Plastic Animal Bookends

Posted in BEDROOMS, CRAFTS
on March 26, 2013

Now that B and K are “tweens”, it was time to get them involved in the process of decorating their rooms.  I definitely wanted them to both feel like the spaces were theirs and filled with things that they loved.

Early in the game, while looking for ideas, K and I came across these bookends and she instantly fell in love with them – there was much squealing and “OMG I LOVE those” going on.

The bookends seemed like a great project to work on together. Each girl picked their animal, glued (we used scrap wood blocks that Shay cut evenly for us), and spray painted on their own (with a careful eye from mom). We were all so excited with the end result – and for next to nothing!

B chose the elephant, K the dogs. To make your own, check out this tutorial on Hi Sugarplum!. one of my favorite blogs. You will be so jealous amazed by Cassie’s creativity, and it will become one of your favorites as well, I promise!

It's only fair to share...
