As it is now November (eek), I thought I would share some ideas for Christmas gift giving. Today I am going to share with you how to make Book Ends. These make a great gift and are a quick, easy project!
Recently I came across some mdf book ends on sale so I grabbed them. (You can easily cut some squares to suit and make your own)
This is how I finished them!
I had Poppy paint them white for me – I had a butterfly, a heart and a bird.
I then selected some paper combinations:
For the heart:
and for the bird (I’m still waiting on a bedroom redo to finish the butterfly)
I traced the shapes onto the paper and cut them out.
Nanny tip: when you trace something and then cut it out, remember to cut to the inside of the tracing line to ensure it fits!
I then glued them in place
and found some ribbons to trim. I love the contrast between the spots and stripes on the hearts!
Little green pompoms and some little eyes finished the birds – aren’t they cute!!
I was so happy with the results I wanted to share them with you – a quick, easy project that is sure to bring joy!
Until next time
