Do you all remember my friend Jill who gave us the great idea for the Headband Holder? Well the other day she asked me to come up with an idea for some book ends. Her daughter needs them and she really wanted to make some with her daughter, so she was hoping that I could come up with an idea of some to make.
I actually got pretty excited about this because I really need some for my girls too, but I never thought of making them (go figure!). So I was headed to the craft store anyway and thought I would look around and try to come up with an idea. And that is when I found the package of wood squares, I thought those would be perfect as a base but still had no idea what to put on them. Really with a simple base like this you can add anything to them to make them special, I thought about getting some animals but ended up deciding on doing the letters instead.
Since I needed to make these for both my daughters I got the letters to spell out BOOK and READ. I also let my oldest pick out how she wanted to do hers since they are going in her room and she had to make it. It was her idea to do the glitter and I think they really came out pretty cool with the glitter.
4 Small square craft wood piece
4 Craft wood letters that spell BOOK or READ
2 Colors of paint
2 Colors of Glitter (optional)
