Pretty Handy readers Happy New Year! Jaime here today from That’s My Letter to share how to make scrap wood DIY Owl Bookends. It’s January and everyone is in cleaning, purging, and organizational mode. While you’re cleaning out the scrap wood bin, save a few scraps to make these cute owl bookends. They are adorable and will help straighten up your bookshelf, too.
I used scrap wood pieces straight from my cut off bin to quickly put together these bookends. These wood pieces happen to be different colors (some stained, some cedar, some painted) but you could easily use new lumber and paint the owls in fun colors.
This is a great gift idea for adults and kids alike! I sent this pair off to my sister who happened to have an owl get down her chimney (someone left the flue open!) and was flying around in her house.
