So, this crafting thing is getting quite addictive now; the satisfaction of making something myself is amazing. Book ends is my next project…
We need book ends for the new shelf above our bed (definitely don’t want stray books falling down in the middle of the night). I had a look online and couldn’t find anything that I liked so I decided to make my own. They turned out really well so I wanted to share the idea with you. If you want to make a personalised gift, these would work well too: use printed photos, book pages, magazine pictures, mementos, like theatre tickets etc.
You will need:
Cardboard letters from Laines World for £2.99
PVA glue, water and pot
Dried beans, peas, lentils or rice (for weighting the hollow letters) although sand would be ideal.
This took me no more than an hour (with a bit more drying time on top of that). It is so nice to have something to use in my home that I made and looks just as good as something I could have bought, but for far less money. Get crafting people! x
