Make Faux-Bronze Animal Bookends On The Cheap

Mad In Crafts

Cool bookends are a fun addition to any home or bookcase, but they aren't always inexpensive. Check out this fun tutorial for putting a few items together in a creative way that will have your friends asking, "Where did you get those?"

Our friends over at Decor Hacks shared this fun tutorial with us from Mad In Crafts. The project starts with a plastic animal and two plastic picture frames from the local Dollar Store.

The animal is cut in half, glued to the frames and then painted. The results are pretty great and could easily be replicated with bookends you already have and embellish with this same method.

It's a creative way to get a fun look without a huge price tag so hop over to Mad In Crafts and see the full step by step process to make your own.
