If you're looking for a creative and practical way to get rid of your old yet nostalgic toys, then these animal book stands are a great way to turn those precious toys into something useful for your home.

Bookends are a fantastic way to neatly stack your books or items together on a shelf, they keep everything nicely organized and easily accessible. While finding a pair of bookends that fit your personality and style can be difficult, turning your precious childhood animal toys into a pair of stands is a great way to make use of items you already have. This DIY activity is easy-as-pie, and simply requires you to super glue your desired toy onto a piece of brick, then paint it with some high gloss lacquer.

Featured on the blog 'House of Ernest,' these bookends are completely customizable to your taste, and are a great way to showcase your precious playthings for all to see.
