Forget photo albums and that collector's addition of The Great Gatsby. These animal bookends are about to be your favorite item on your bookshelf. Go wild and make these DIY animal bookends in just a few simple steps:
You'll need: two wood blocks, paint (color of your choice), Gorilla Glue and a pair of your favorite plastic, toy animals.
1. Pick up some scrap wood from your local home improvement store. Smaller pieces are usually free, and you can sand them down so they appear more rustic.See more at: https://brightnest.com/posts/choose-your-own-adventure-diy-animal-bookends

    Cute. I'd like to make some using marble or granite tiles as the base and maybe have a back too.

      @Pat, that is a fun idea, as I enjoy painting faux finishes. In this case I'd rather use the real stone tiles for the weight needed to hold the books in place. In fact, I'm not so sure the better way to go would be solid stone bases for the weight

    I take old bricks, cover with contact paper of your choice and then add whatever you like on top or use just plain, make wonderful bookends, have several setting around
