How to Make Unicorn Bookends


Step 1

Get a plastic unicorn toy, this one available on Amazon is perfect because it's made in two halves.  Cut two flat pieces of wood to the size of a book, choose wood that is thick enough to hold the weight of your books.

Choose our Family-safe | Skin-friendly Formula of Sugru for this project if you're a kid yourself, or planning to do this project with kids. 

Step 2

Line the feet of the unicorn up with the bottom edge by placing your piece of wood at a 90 degree angle to it, and mark with a pencil where your unicorn body will go. Now take half a single-use pack of Sugru and mould it into a pyramid, ready to receive the front half of your unicorn toy.

Step 3

Press the front half of the unicorn toy down onto the Sugru pyramid firmly. Remember to use your second piece of wood or another flat object to ensure that the feet are at 90 degrees. This will ensure that your bookend will stand up straight once the Sugru is cured.

Step 4

Repeat with the second piece of wood and the hind legs of your unicorn. Milly, who made this project here, used some leftover Sugru to decorate the rest of the wood with some beads. You may have your own ideas!

Step 5

Leave everything in a safe place for 24 hours to give the Sugru time to cure. Now you're ready to use your awesome new unicorn bookends. Enjoy!
