DIY Anthropologie Woodland Bookends

Cut and Sand the Parts. Cut the 1×6 to size using the cut list provided. “Knock down” the edges. Instead of standard bookends, sew sandbags from fun, colorful fabric to corral your books, files, and folders. Cut two 8x10-inch pieces of fabric, place right sides together, and sew three sides using 1/2-inch seam allowances. Turn right side out, then insert a sealable plastic bag filled with sand. Topstitch all around to finish. Choosing and Cutting Wood for the Bookends I first found scrap ¾” thick boards I found that would be perfect for the DIY bookends: To create the book ends, I needed to cut out four pieces – 2 pieces of 4.5”x4.5” and 2 pieces of 4.5”x5.25”. I figured this size would on the smaller side (less clunky) and perfect for small kids books.

Pretty fabric bookends are filled with sand and sewn.
