MY DIY | Succulent & Supply Holder Bookends
DIY PROJECT, Home DIY
One of my favorite things to do is wander around a store, and find items to reinvent for a DIY project. I was recently looking for some bookends for my desk that would double as a pen/pencil holder, I was not finding exactly what I wanted, so decided to get creative. After perusing each section, I emerged with two toothbrush holders and cork coasters. When combined they created the perfect bookends, with slots for my writing supplies and my beloved succulents, plus a bonus memo board for daily reminders! Have you ever reimagined an everyday item, I would love to hear about it! Steps and supplies after the break…

What you do:
Step 1: Glue the cork coasters to the front and back of the toothbrush holder using E6000, let dry.
Step 2: Plant a succulent in one side of the the container.
Step 3: Fill in the base with white gravel to give the bookend more weight.
Step 4: Add your writing utensils, and prop up your books with a holder on each side.
