I love to nest during this time of year when the kids head back to school! Part of my ‘love language’ for our family is to make this time as easy as possible for them and make handmade DIY items that they’ll love. Today I want to share something I think is helpful and fun for YOU! I am beginning a new series called “THROWBACK MONDAY”.
Did you know that I have well over 800 posts in my blog archives? I get thousands of new followers each month that probably have never seen them. So, every Monday I’ll be sharing the best of the best seasonal posts from my archives.
And if you are one of my most treasured friends that have been with me for a long time, you just might like to see my best posts over again!

Supplies to make DIY monogram bookends:
- 2 Block Letters – the ones I bought were pink so I simply changed the color with spray paint! They were only $3.00 too – so budget friendly!
- Silver colored Spray Paint.
- Krazy Glue
1. Using Krazy Glue attach the two letter blocks in an L shape.
2. Spray paint silver and let dry. It may need two coats of spray paint.
Aren’t these fun?
These are so incredibly quick to make and hold my son’s 39 Clues books perfectly! I love the shiny zinc industrial look – so great for a kids room!
I think I’ll make some for my own office bookcases too!
Will you be making these fun bookends for your kiddo?
