Welcome to DAY 5 of the Anthropologie knock off challenge!! I am so excited to be a part of this challenge brought to you by an amazing group of talented bloggers. Every day this week we will each be sharing a project inspired by Anthropologie. Today I am sharing my Bird Book Ends for $6!! I am also featuring knock off designs from my fellow bloggers below, check them out….. simply click the picture to visit their post.
My husband actually helped me with this project… I know.. I know.. I was shocked too. It was either he cut the wood or watch a mid tantrum Scarlett while i visited good ole home depot and asked one of them for help.
This project was super duper easy (especially since I got to sit back and watch the wood be cut and nailed together). Materials include: Bird Figurine, 4 pieces of wood, nails, paint, sand paper (optional) and hot glue.
Step one: Cut wood and nail together to make a basic bookend. The size you cut depends on the size of your figurine.
Step 2: Spray bookends with primer and then paint them
Step 3: Sand the corners and edges of bookends to roughen them up
Step 4: Spray paint your figurines white
Step 5: Hot Glue the birds onto the wood bookends
Last of all make sure the little ones around are having fun and being safe!!
I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy tutorial on how to make gorgeous simple DIY bookends! Have a great weekend!
