My husband and I are both bookworms. To instil the same love of reading into our kids, we have a growing collection of kids books. When decorating my son’s room, I wanted some bookends to go with the transport theme, but really couldn’t find anything I liked. So what is a craft blogger to do, but make her own.
I seem to have decided on making his room matchy-matchy. I used the same templates and fabric as the appliques on his quilt cover and wall art.
There’s rice in the base to help them stand-up and rubbery drawer liner is used to keep them in place.
You could use the same techniques to make a bookend or toy out of almost any picture!
I still have at least three more projects in the works to complete his bedroom. Then I’ll put together a tour of his bedroom so you can see it all together.
Hope you’re enjoying all the boy projects in the craft-blogosphere at the moment. I know I am!
