3/31 | LOVE DIY Bookends for Mom

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for an awesome Mother’s Day gift idea. Have you ever thought about DIY Bookends? My mom is very picky about a lot of things, which means I try to stay away from buying her clothes, jewelry, or anything like that. This year I decided to make her something for her desk at her new job! These L-O-V-E DIY Bookends will be the perfect project for her bookcase. Maybe this would be a great project for your mom too or maybe even yourself!

  1. Super super cute! I don’t think I’d make these for my mom….I think I’d steal them for myself! Mine would say “read”. I love the idea!
