diy elephant bookends

Check out these cute animal bookends made by Cassie at Hi, Sugarplum. She found the elephants in Target’s dollar spot, and with a few other supplies she had on hand, transformed them into a useful, and stylish item to help her organize her bookcase. [how to make elephant bookends]

Cassie only used a few items to make these (including, hilariously, her driveway – as a file for the elephants’ feet!), but if you have to buy everything, you will still be able to make these for less than $10.

Project Estimate:

  • 2 plastic elephants, $2
  • 2 bricks or flat landscaping rocks, free from your yard or $1 each
  • Spray paint, on hand or $3
  • Super glue or other glue that will work with plastic & brick, on hand or $1

Total: $2 and up
