Pin and Tell: Fabric-Covered Brick Book Ends

My Inspiration and Directions:
Pinned Image
Bad News: This pin does not link to directions
Good News: This project is so easy that it does not really need directions (basically, you just wrap two garden bricks like a gift with fabric)

Cost and Materials:
  • Bricks
  • Fabric
  • Glue (I believe I used a hot glue gun)
Cost is under $10.

End Result:

Biggest Flaw: Maybe my cookbooks are too heavy, but sometimes they fall over when you take a book off the shelf.
Suggestion to Make Better: Make the seams on the longer side of the brick so they edge they sit on is more smooth, but you have to have super nice wrapping skills...

Rachel Approved?: Yes, despite the little flaw, I love my bookends. They are cute and practical. 

Pin on,
