I'm sure we've all seen these plastic crayons at the dollar store, so I thought to use them as some DIY decor! These bookends can be used in a Kid's room, or even in the classroom!

It's so cute, so much potential! I removed the crayon label very carefully. Then cut in 1/2 placing the CRA to the front and the YON to the back and cut out the middle away.

I started by cutting the center out. Not the label this will be my front and back

Then I cut the wood I'd need. I measured the front half and added an inch and then did the same for back then cut the side to the bookends 7”.

Once they were in place, I sprayed them with some blue paint which will look really great with the red crayon. 🖍

If there are any areas where the sticker doesn't cover, you can use a sharpie to fill it in.

Glue the crayon to the center of the stand and repeat with the other end.
