♪♪♪ I like pretty things and I cannot lie ♪♪♪ These are pretty. I heart them. a lot. These Quick & Easy gilded animal bookends make my heart beat a little faster and my smile a bit bigger.
This turns everything you touch into gold. literally. It’s brilliant.
- Martha Stewart Gilding
- 4 blocks of wood (the size you want for your bookends)
- 2 dollar store animals (make sure they look cool on bookends)
- super glue
- paint brush
- sand paper (if needed)
- Use glue to put 2 blocks of wood together in bookend form. (I sanded the corners of my wood to make them look a bit more “classy”.)
2- You need to super glue your animal to the book end that you created.
I used these great giraffes from the dollar store…$1 each.
3- Cover the animals and bookends in gilding.
You only need one coat. And it goes quick and dries quickly.
And you will get this…
You will want to gild everything. Even pears and cake plates.
Maybe even your toilet.
