Decorative

Bookends

By Cristin Drewes

M ake these decorative

bookends using a variety

of miniatures—real shells,

alphabet beads, animals, mini charms, etc. Size is determined by the miniature you use on your bookend and the height of the books. Experiment and have fun on this one!

What You’ll Need:

Balsawood scraps

Favorite adhesive (wood glue or hot

glue)

Two mini items—such as real min - iature shells, miniature animals, alphabet beads and mini charms.

(Mini charms can be found in the jew - elry section of most hobby and craft stores for around a dollar on sale.)

Acrylic metallic paint

for around a dollar on sale.) • Acrylic metallic paint Instructions for Bookends: 1. Cut wood

Instructions for Bookends:

1. Cut wood to the desired size. Base the size on the miniatures you are using on your bookend and the height of your books. (The basic size of the wood I use is 3cm—about 1 1 /16”—by 1½cm— about 9 /16”—so once it’s cut into two pieces, I have two 1½cm squares.)

2. Glue the two pieces of wood

together to form a 90-degree angle or “L” shape.

3. Glue the miniature to the “L.”

Remember that placement is

important—you want the images/ items to both face outward. When using charms, be sure to remove rings and such. Cut these off with wire cutters and then file off the excess.

4. Once the glue is dry, paint the

desired color. Metallic paints are

particularly nice. The bookends

will look like brass, copper, gold, or silver pieces depending on the

paint you use.
