These pineapple bookends make me very happy. Why might you ask? Well this was a DIY in the works for, oh I don’t know, maybe a year? There was so many obstacles to overcome. Bookends had to be, well, heavy. And I had to have a pineapple shaped mold, which are not very easy to find. These pineapple bookends put me through the loop but I finally, finally figured them out!
By using plaster to make the pineapples that means that they would definitely be heavy enough to support books. And if I was using plaster then I would need a silicone mold for the actual pineapple shape. Well after much research I learned how to make my own silicone mold! I had to borrow a set of hands (thanks Rose!) to help with the project but I accomplished just what I wanted – a pair of beautiful plaster pineapple bookends.Who knew a DIY project could take so much time and thought?! Not only are you getting a full tutorial on these bookends but you’re also get a sneak inside my thought process 😉 Ya’ll know how much I love pineapples, so this DIY was a long time coming.
