Great Holiday Gift: Beautiful Brick Bookends

Today's Craft: Beautiful Brick Bookends
These make a wonderful homemade holiday gift!
To make this craft you will need 2 bricks, felt, glue, and acrylic paint and brushes. First set up a nice work area to decorate your bricks- lay out newspaper and set up your paints. Paint a nice design, or create a figure, a snowman, buildings- whatever you wish. Remember that bricks are very porous, so you will have to put on a lot of paint. When your bricks have dried, trace the bottom of the brick on a piece of felt and cut out the felt. Glue the felt piece onto the bottom of the brick and you have the perfect gift.
