Have a baby shower to go to? Planning a baby boy’s nursery or a little boy’s room? No matter which of those scenarios apply, making some DIY bookends would be a great way to go for a unique, personalized touch! And, the best part about this project is that it is completely customizable – you could go with something softer & sweeter for a baby gift (or a baby girl) or even some sort of classic toy (I think letter blocks would be really cute)! My boys are SO excited about these dinomite dinosaur bookends! I think they’d be adorable in the right baby boy nursery too. But again, the general project can be customized in SO many ways. My inspiration actually came from Target!! Check out their cute DIY Nursery Wall Art & Bookends project:
Super cute, right?! Love it! The wall cube set shown in the video was only available online in my area. But, I found a different 2-piece wall cube set in my local Target. I love it because the small square is perfect for the bookends and the larger on is great for the wall. Then, really all you need is two figurines or toys, spray paint, and glue (most of which you can find at Target). Super easy! Prying apart the wood block took a little bit of time (I wanted to be sure to do it carefully). But then, you just need to glue down your toys and spray paint. Once dry, the bookends are ready to use. I do recommend adding a big of foam or non-slip material to the bottom of the bookends to prevent sliding. But, otherwise, I did it just like the video shows. Quick (minus drying time), easy, and totally customizable. The boys LOVE them! If DIY bookends aren’t your project-style, then be sure to check out BabyCenter’s DIY Inspiration Pinterest board for some ideas. There are some other great, customizable ideas there too.
