10 Cool DIY Bookend Ideas

You can make bookends out of just about any material, shape and size so long as they have enough weight to hold books upright on their shelves. Take a look at some of these nifty bookends for the bibliophile in your life.

Succulent Plants

Grow succulent plants in small pots for bookends. These plants are easy to maintain and don’t grow very high.

Animals

Animals make great bookends when you attach them to wooden blocks. Show your stripes when you paint dogs, cats, horses, elephants or your other favorite animal and place them on your shelves.

Concrete

Concrete is heavy and dense, so you don’t need large pieces for your books. Sand them down to remove any sharp edges and paint them to prevent scrapes.
