DIY Plastic Animal Bookends

My friend, Ms. Mac, spotted this fun DIY project for us to do on Pinterest maybe 8 months ago, and last weekend, we finally did it!  We ordered the plastic animals very cheaply from Amazon.com (and sawed them in half) then bought glue, plastic frames, and spray paint from A.C. Moore.  It was a very easy DIY and the smallest "hiccup" was that at times, the spray paint was a bit thick on the frame - make sure you use a light hand on that part.

The finished products.

I love my silver elephants!
