What we need

Let's make DIY Bookends

1

Planning for DIY Bookends Determine which direction you want your cool bookend “story” to go. Then hold the dinosaur up to one of your bookends, and draw a straight line where you want to cut it.

Gluing Your Kid’s Bookends Determine where you want the back/footed piece to go. Try and line them up so when in place they tell the story.

2

Securing the Object While holding the dinosaur in place, run a bead of hot glue around all the points of contact.

3

Repeating for the Other Book End: Place the second bookend next to the first one, and position the head of the dinosaur carefully to align horizontally.

Adding Accessories to Book Ends: When the head is in place, it’s time to position the toy soldiers. Super glue then hot glue these in place as well.
